We have been systematically brainwashed into believing that your hair and your body must be unnatural in order to be considered beautiful.
On the contrary, I should not have to put harsh chemicals in my hair in order to be accepted in a professional environment. I should not have to be as slender as a high-fashion model to have the beauty within me recognized.
Our hair is beautiful, thick and stubborn, it is not easy going natural but it is totally worth it.
Here are some tips to keeping our natural thick hair;
Your hair is the most fragile of all hair types, it will snap & break easily. So you need more TLCs than thin hair.
No chemicals. No relaxers especially! No heating styling tools. A finger comb is best or use a wide tooth comb. Do what Oprah have been, going natural. Use oil or conditioner to keep them moisturized.
A Leave-in conditioner is better, rub it all over the hair and use a silk scarf to keep the moisture in.
Always cream the hair when wet, coconut oil is also highly recommended.
