I remember when I was a little girl in school and some of the kids would say “why is your hair so crunchy and hard”. I would come home crying to my momma and she would tell me that I had beautiful hair, yet people teased me so it was hard to believe. Then later on I’d be on the sets where none of the hairdressers knew how to do my hair. I would either come with braids already done, or have to spend time in the room with the few minutes I had left to fix whatever they had done before going to film... As a little girl that was a source of anxiety for me “uh oh, the hair conversation” but as I got older the more I stopped letting others project their ignorance and confusion about my hair on to me. Just because someone else doesn’t understand it, doesn’t mean you have to own it. I am who I am and it just is what it is. 😍💕🙌🏾🙏🏾

This message came after the 26-year-old shaved off all of her hair in 2017 and began the journey to embracing her natural hair. In the Facebook post, Keke wrote:
"I had to check myself when I actually felt that I in some way wasn't 'dressed' because I had no wig on," recounting the time she ran into a friend after her 'big chop.'
The singer-songwriter shared details of what her daily routine is like and how she manages to stay positive while achieving her set goals for the day.
