I love the different things that we can do with natural hair, I mean it really is amazing. My friends tell me all the time that they wished their hair had half the volume that mine does. I know that its not my hair but it bothers something in me when friends decide that they cant work with their hair and its too hard to manage. Ive went through days when people make comments on my hair that if it was another person some bodily damage would have been done. I have some of the thickest hair ever seen. Ive struggled to figure out how to keep my hair moist, Ive struggled with length. I have shrinkage and add to the fact that my hair grows out and not down , it will be YEARS before I can even achieve a low ponytail comfortably.
Whats so wrong with our hair that we need a relaxer, that a texturizer has to mess up what we have naturally?? Deep down inside is it really you cant manage it or is it someones telling you , its too nappy??
I don't know , I just know that you will never see my hair straight because deep down inside if it did I'd feel like I only did it to fit in. That someone told me I wasn't beautiful unless I sat in a beauty salon and let them blow my hair out. its not going to happen.
I'm all for options , yes to some its just hair but why is it just hair? From an early age my grandmother always told me " Your hair is your glory", take care of it as such. I love my hair and it doesn't look like anyone else because it was made just for me.
