Back in 2011, I chopped all my hair off to go natural. Since then my hair has been healthier than it’s ever been. But naturally curly hair, just isn’t my thing. If you happen to a natural hair nazi you can click off my blog now.
I prefer straight hair. Period. Point. And the blank (in my best Tamar voice)! And for several reasons. One, I feel 13 when my hair is curly. I grew up with natural wavy hair divided into pigtails. I’m not here for it. And no matter how many headbands I put on or flat-twists I attempt, I’m just not sold on my curly hair. And two, curly grey hair makes me feel slavey! And old. Like, I’ve been picking cotton (and not the unicorn cotton from Beyonce) on a sweltering summer day in the fields of Mississippi. And three…y’all know how much work natural curly hair is! Stop lying to people. No one has this perfect wet-n-go look. No one! It takes hours or work. And ain’t NOBODY got time for that.
So in order to keep my hair straight and healthy, I had to come up with an alternative to the flat-iron. Watch the video below to see exactly how I’m keeping my hair LAID (laugh dammit)!
