Update: Big Trim and wearing my hair free!

Ok so I have been needing my hair evened out for months now. I never had the time to go to the salon. I would take down my twists extensions and redo them a day or two later. I got a Major trim and decided to Not add any extensions. I just want to be free. I have had a mixed reaction. My friends and family have been super encouraging!! Thanks everyone! However at work I have been getting compliments and strange looks. I really could car less about the strange looks. I really want to stop and say "this is my real hair people and I Love it!!". I had a co-worker who told me that her sister, who is natural, uses a product that makes your hair curl up. I am not worried about my hair not being curly. My hair texture is Coarse, 4c/d. My hair Will Not curl up with out manipulation such as twists outs, braids, perm rods, or whatever. Instead of getting indignant with people, I will have to school them. I will Not be straightening my hair anytime soon. It's a New Day up in here and as a black woman with a black daughter, I will wear my hair natural and be Proud of it. I will teach my little girl to love her hair. I will embrace my Lovely Kinks!! If Anyone has problem, take it up with someone who cares.

Natural Sisters Unite!!!


  1. That's right Keisha!. People can be so ignorant. I have to tell my students almost daily that there is no such thing as good hair. Unfortunately some of my family members buy into this misconception too.

  2. Right! Keep telling your students the Truth. A lot of them probably do not get that at home anyway. SMH
