African American females have always been looked down upon because of our “nappy heads” or “afros”, this is unfortunately unfair because we have one of the best hair types. Our hair has the ability to very versatile and manipulative; we can wear it in it’s natural state, straightened, or even in braid outs, twist outs, the list is endless. Most girls are given relaxers at a young age because their hair isn’t manageable or it’s “too thick”. Those same girls (I was one of those girls) miss out on the opportunity to embrace their curls and coils.
Natural hair is beautiful and no one should be ashamed of the hair they’re born with, whether it’s very loose curls or extremely tight coils (ALL HAIR TYPES ARE GORGEOUS).
