To all my Non-Black subscribers, feel free to skip this post.
As a Black woman, I love having natural hair, but there are times where I struggle with it. I struggle because I have different textures of hair scattered all across my head. Since I cut off over half of my hair, the struggle has been real. I completely forgot how difficult it is to mask all my different textures when my hair is shorter. Trying to blend my straight hair with my curly and wavy textures hasn’t been working with my wash n’ go’s.
My straight hair has been so disrespectful because it refuses to blend like it normally would when it was longer. My parents used to joke that I got stuck with the hair textures from every ancestor unlike my sisters and brother. My oldest sister’s hair is medium length, but her hair is relaxed. My second oldest sister’s hair is super curly and cropped short. My brother’s hair is wavy. Me? SMH, I have the curly, the kinky, the straight and the wavy. How fair is that?! 😤
I guess I can take solace in knowing that I’m definitely not alone because there are other Black women with multiple textures like myself. My friends love it because they like playing with all my different textures of hair. On the other hand, there are times when I’m in a love / hate relationship with my hair. If I had a choice to get rid of all my different textures, I still wouldn’t do it because my hair is what makes me, me. That doesn’t mean that my hair doesn’t sometimes get on my everlasting nerve. 🤦🏾♀️
Until next time…
