Thick hair

My hair is really thick. Kinda looks like a wig. It’s funny when people asks me questions about my hair. They will ask things like have you ever had a perm before? My response is of course but the perm chemicals began to cause my hair to break. Oh and my all time favorite question is: Why don’t you put a perm in your hair it would be so pretty? I want to ask them, so you think thick hair without a perm is ugly? Or hair that is not straight is not pretty? I just want to sometimes ask point blank so what is your hair texture without a perm? Then, I want to ask is your hair ugly without a perm?

The whole point is that you should embrace your natural hair no matter what texture it is. I am not saying that a perm is all bad. However, the type of perm and how it is applied to the hair is what makes all the difference in whether you will have healthy hair or not.
When it comes to hair, there is sometimes a debate on what looks good and what is "in". Sometimes the problem is that some women try to conform and fit in with other people instead of being different. With natural hair, you can be different. So stand out and be proud of your natural hair.

Embrace the natural you

For those of you who believe that it is too hard to wear your hair natural, you are not alone. There are many who have a hard time with their transition. Heck, I had a hard time for about a year. It can be difficult. But you can gradually grow to love the new look.
