Natural Is Cool Enough in Asia!

     So, I am excitedly trekking across Asia, beginning with Singapore and now Bali, with my husband, before I head off to various parts of China and then Bangkok and Phuket, Thailand.  One of my cultural questions on this marvelous adventure is whether or not Natural Is Cool Enough in this part of the world.  So far, what I have found is love for my natural tresses as I travel.  There are positive comments about my locks, no awkward stares and essentially, people are not phased by my them in one direction or the other.   When there is a comment, it is usually, "very nice hair" or "I like your hair."  There is no touching or weird stares, which is odd because honestly, in the U.S., the touching encounter and stares sometimes happens.   So below are pictures of me and a few other women that I have spotted with their natural do's.  I'm just embracing the wonderful reality that so far, from my travels in Asia, Natural IS Cool Enough and that is fantastic.  I'll provide further updates on this exciting experience as my journey continues!

Also note the new Natural Is Cool Enough t-shirts, in red and yellow, worn by our hosts in Ubud, Bali.  I was so pleased to give them the N.I.C.E. t-shirts as gifts as a token of our appreciation for their wonderful hospitality. Stay tuned to find out how you can have one of these fabulous new t-shirts!
