I just watched the video below from one of my favorite natural hair vloggers. She has been making a slow transition to vegan for over 3 years and decided to share her story on YouTube. It’s very similar to mine and it had me thinking – could going natural (with your hair) be the start of a vegan journey? I’ve always seen the correlation between learning to care for my hair to learning to care for my body. I had no idea it would lead me to becoming vegan but it has. The more I learn about the things I’m putting on and in my body, the better it inspires me to do the right thing for myself.
I also share some of the same struggles as Whitney. When people ask, I like to say I’m veganish because while I try to eat completely vegan, I haven’t fully adopted the lifestyle with clothes, shoes, furniture, makeup, etc.
Did you transition from natural to vegan? What do you think of the correlation? Do you struggle with certain aspects of being vegan? Share your thoughts below.
