I remember way back in school when I had a TWA, I had finger coils on my hair, my lecturer was like “what’s this on your hair? it’s so untidy and unkept, it looks like dreadlocks”
Any advice for new naturals?
My advice for new naturals, love your hair and it will love you back…accept it for what it is and how it is…don’t get caught up into trying to make your hair do what someone else’s hair does, it will only frustrate you…find what works for you and don’t become a market for everyone who has something to sell…be happy with who you are and the hair God gave you and love life!
