Irrelevant

Good Morning! Happy Morning to you all! I’ve been participating in an awesome educational forum where people can post various questions to Black people. One question in particular gave me an opportunity to educate a few members. Keep reading and I’ll tell you why.

Some members who have seen pictures of my hair straighten made the comment that my hair is only long because of my Native American and my recently discovered Middle Eastern ancestry. Wrong, completely wrong and irrelevant. By the way, I don’t fault MyHeritage for not being able to pick up all my ancestry since they aren’t advanced as Ancestry DNA, but in time they’ll get there…

Now, I will say that my hair growth may have something to do with my genetics, but it’s not the main reason. I take care of my hair, all of it. From the kinky to the wavy to the curly and even the straight. My four textures are long because of me and how I take care of my hair.

A few weeks before my father passed, I cut off a good bit of my hair and it’s now to my armpit instead of to my elbows. My hair growth and length potential is NOT solely because of my Native American and Middle Eastern ancestry. It’s because I know how to take care of my hair. Once I explained all of that to them, they left the forum a bit more educated.

Knowledge is power!

Until next time…
