I’ve been wearing my natural hair a good bit this year. The longest I’ve worn it consecutively is maybe two weeks. Now, I know that doesn’t seem like a long time but this is coming from a woman who neveerrrr wore her natural hair. To the point where when I did, someone told me that he didn’t think I had hair *sideeyes
I come from a family of women who are hairstylists. Weaves, wigs, braids you name it, I had it so all throughout high school and college, that’s what I wore. Earlier this year, I went on a business trip and I asked one of my business sisters to redo my braids that were under my unit. She took my braids out and was shocked at the amount of hair that I have. Then everyone in the house started asking me was it a wig, why I don’t wear my hair and telling me how beautiful my natural hair looked on me. From then on, I decided that I was going to give it a try. I did and let’s just say, I am still learning what works for me as far as products. Natural hair is so expensive (to me) I find myself purchasing new products like every other day and I think I found something that works so far (I’ll keep you posted)
Thankfully, one of my friend’s whose also natural, takes the time to wash my hair and teaches me different ways on how I can style my hair. So far, a twist out is my favorite. That’s the style I’m wearing here and I did it myself. I will not give up on wearing my natural hair what I will do is, take care of it while continuing to wear protective styles.
