Black Cotton


 If one more person asks why my hair isn't combed they are going to get punched in the throat. Oh okay, fine, I'll probably only look at them funny while fighting the itch to kick them in the shin, hard. In the event that you're curious, I do comb my hair! Well it's finger combed,  I can't afford to replace combs weekly and definitely don't want to suffer through the headaches and ripped out strands that result from the gentle and time consuming  use of a comb. 

I'm not going to spend hours every day forcing my hair to conform to someone elses idea of the way natural hair should look. So, no. I won't relax it, texturize it, braid it or cover it up, just because you don't like to see it. I think it's damn gorgeous! It's glorious and beautiful and unusual and mine. 

I like my hair the way it grows out of my scalp. Not everyone has a head full of black cotton!


 

As much as I think my hair is awesome, it's at an awkward stage. Especially because the back and sides are so much shorter than the top.  The box braids were gorgeous but absolutely horrible for my edges. Any suggestions for products to help them recover? I've heard that castor oil is a pretty good option.
 What do you think?

  2. I love this post. I recently cut my hair (hoping to make this year a short hair year) because protective styling, which was mostly braids, just made my folickles hurt and took too damned long.

    PS: have you have done a face (makeup + skincare) post? I'd love to read one from you.

  3. I'm not sure WHERE you are hanging out, but I think almost everyone is now used to seeing naturals with their hair like yours :-/ I used to get asked if I was locking my hair when I wore my hair like yours but nvr if I can't comb my hair lol
    I've just started using Jamaican Black Castor Oil at my temples in hopes that it encourages growth!
    PS - ur hair is FAB!
