Yeah, the 'hair' thing is a serious issue for some of us (black women). These days I'm wearing my hair natural. . .which means (for me)a huge afro sometimes and other times I'll brush it back in sort of an 'afro puff' look.
I absolutely LOVE missing out on the 5 to 6 hours it would take at a beauty salon because some beauticians don't know how to organize their time/schedules better.
And men seem to like my hair this way, I get compliments from them all the time. . .a couple of black men commented that, they like to see a 'sista' wear her hair 'natural'.
On the other hand, I'm leaving for San Francisco (Friday night) for a graduation on Saturday, one of my girlfriends had the nerve to say: you're getting your hair done, right? I KNOW you're not going to wear your hair like THAT (natural) at a college graduation.
Personally, I LOVE the look and it's so damn easy.
so 'yes' I'll be wearing my hair 'natural'. . .cause I know how to 'dress it up'.
It's a talent & a gift.
