Around that time Lewis noticed that so many people in the industry had straight hair and she wanted it done as well. She said, “I was new to that world, I went along with it. Plus I also felt different when my hair was straightened: I felt polished. And so I continued to straighten it for years.” A year and a half into it though she began feeling chronic fatigue, pains in her neck and throat.
Lewis found out that she had Hashimoto disease and it affects women for the most part. She said, “When I was first diagnosed, I was absolutely devastated; I felt very scared and alone until I began to research and understand how others were living with the disease.” She began taking medication and stopped straightening her hair. It helped her reduce toxins to her body and become healthier.
