15 things I have learned about wearing my hair in its natural state
Here are 15 things I have learned about wearing my hair in its natural state. (Almost, I still have perm on my edges.)
First and foremost, you must be very patient
Oils are you friends
Be very patient
Why go to the gym when you can just comb your hair
Use plenty of moisturizer, water, and did I mention oils
The tangles are real
When you think you are done combing, comb some more
You need to have anywhere from 45 minute to an hour just to come your hair. Let’s not talk about washing it.
You need to be creative when styling your hair. (I am very creative High Bun, Low Bun, Side Bun, Messy Bun, I give up Bun.)
Bantu Knot and braid outs are not my friends, I look like I stuck my finger in and electric socket when I take them down.
Bantu knots are harder than I thought.
The perm on the end of my hair and the natural hair are not even neighbors, they live in two different area codes.
What the heck is baby hairs, I am a grown woman, because I have edges that are not even teenage hair.
Lay those edges, if you don’t want them curling up on you. (Who am I kidding, looking like the NBA player (no names mention) K.D at the back of your head)
It takes lots of prayer and arm stretching before you tackle you hair.
LOL, No but for the most part I can say, that I have done well with my hair, not to mention it is very soft, and the struggle with tangles is real. When you think you have gotten it all combed out, think again. You better comb it and braid it or pin it as you go. I give natural women their props, because it is not as easy as it seems. I also see why some women look like they never put a comb through their hair, it’s not that, they just gave up. LOL No offense to anyone. These are my thoughts and my struggle and I know there are other women out there that are thinking the same thing but they are not saying it.
