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.
