Hair Annoyances

So done with the "natural hair world". It's like being a feminist, but more hardcore. Think that every comment is a degradation of your hair instead of someone just being inquisitive about it. Boo freakin hoo. Not everyone looks good natural. Some ppl look BETTER with long hair, others with short. Some look good regardless. In the end, its a personal choice.

I hate when people come to be for hair advice or ask about my regimen. I dont have one. I tried doing what the blogs said. Co-washing. Sulfate free shampoo. No cones. All that. Unfortunately, my hair loves ALL of the bad ish. She likes when she's squeaky clean.. stripped of all products & moisture.. then I add my conditioner.. let it sit on for awhile then wash it out. If my scalp is clean, my hair is happy.

Also, if your hair isn't 100% natural, you cant do your hair like mine. Also, if your hair is a different texture, you can't do it like mine. My hair is thinner than most. Doesn't absorb moisture well. And likes to be left alone. If i rock a fro, your fro may look different. Hell my hair is different everyday.

Its just annoying. Im happy you wanna become a natural hair diva but you have to do what's right for your hair type.

Stop asking about the magical product that will make your hair do this or that. Or stop thinking that creating everything naturally will give you 12inches of hair growth in a year.

Love, love, LOVE this post! It's gotten to the point where I just love doing me & not worrying bout it. I mean, it's like they expect people to pay mad $ for natural products that may not work & I'm in college! smh. Thank you for saying what I want to.

No problema. I see all these sites rave about Kinky Curly curling custard or whatever but Im like do I really wanna pay $20 for that lil ass jar? & then they say for it to work properly I have to buy the shampoo.. the conditioner.. the leave in. The WHOLE line. Umm yea, its cheaper to get a weave. lol
