I’ve been obsessed with my hair ever since 2011 when I first tried 2-strand twists. I was amazed by how well my hair responded to the style, I had no idea my hair could do what it did! Since then, you couldn’t tell me nothing about my hair…okay!

We were at a beauty supply store in the “natural hair supplies” section getting our bi-monthly supply of raw shea butter, when a complete stranger came up to us to ask about our hair, since she stated, “Your hair looks so beautiful! I’ve been thinking about doing the natural thing too, but I just don’t know yet.” My friend chimed in again, “You know relaxers can cause permanent hair loss, sores on your scalp, and breakage! It’s not a good look,” she said. “I remember the last time I got a relaxer, I had a sore on my scalp that started to ooze puss! Why would I ever get another relaxer after that!”
Despite where I knew this conversation was going, and the look of concern I was giving my friend, she kept talking about not getting relaxers. The look on the other woman’s face Continue reading
