A little diversion away from travel to talk about HAIR. When I was younger, I had really tough hair. You know the kind of hair that breaks combs? The one that hairdressers run away from? The one that gives you a headache once someone touches it? That was my hair. . . When my mum finally accepted that it was ok to start 'blowing out' my hair, I was overjoyed. I cut my hair in school from Jss1-3 but but once I started growing it again, I never went back to hair without relaxers or texturizers. . . Now, I know what you want to say. Amarachi, if you put in water, coconut oil and shea butter and do this or that at night, you'll be fine. Let's just say that doesn't work for me. I've tried. And I see what my kid sister does to get her hair to be comb-worthy every morning and frankly, I cannot put in that much effort. . . That being said, for a while, I've noticed the gradual shaming of people with natural (relaxed hair). To put things in perspective, natural hair to me is hair without extensions. As in, hair growing out of my head. Whether I choose to dye it or straighten it, cut it or curl it. . . I view not just the hair but the woman (or the man). I see beauty in both natural (unrelaxed) hair and natural (relaxed) hair. . . So to end this short long story, No, I don't have relaxed hair because I am not proud of my African heritage or my 'God-given natural hair'. . . I don't have relaxed hair because my mind has been brainwashed to think the acceptable standard of beauty is straight hair. . . I think you can have healthy hair that is texturized and one that isn't and I believe you can embrace your hair (type) without shaming others. . . I'd love to hear what you think too. About hair generally? Natural 'natural' or texturized..
