Wild and Untamed

Something about the sun being out today made me want to go wild and crazy. So I woke up today and didn't even pick up a straightener. I wanted the crazy, nappy, big hair look I have desperately always wanted to achieve but was a little skeptical about it. I was afraid people would say things like "did her straightener die or something?" Nonetheless, I braided my hair just so I can achieve the frizzy hair look and I loved it. Even though this is not exactly nappy hair or MINE, it made me wonder why tightly coiled hair also known as nappy hair is so frowned upon. The sad thing is its us thats doing everything in our power to BUY the look thats considered the norm. Some of us (and I am guilty as well), will go as far as buying up to $300 Malaysian/Indian/cambodian (notice African hair is not included in this) hair just to be a part of the norm. 



When I meet people that are natural, I always commend them because it takes a very beautiful, confident African woman to wear her hair proudly with no chemicals. My confidence is not close to being there yet, BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU. Not to worry though, I'll get there slowly but surely.

  6. I don't see anything wrong with nappy hair. It's actually beautiful if you can take the stress in maintaining it. I can't. Love your hair. Lovely shoes too.
