Inquisitive hands is one thing. Curious but polite folks also get thoughts about them too sometimes though.
First confession on the list happens to be inadvertent warning to those with inquisitive hands.
As a naturalista, maintaining (or transitioning back to) natural hair is a daily journey - physically and mentally. When I say mentally, I mean steeling my nerves against some of the thoughts that cross my mind when someone makes a comment or gesture that relates to my hair. And as a busy naturalista who's lived abroad for sometime, it has happened to me more than once a fortnight - and if it's happened to me, it's happened to other natural-haired beauties.
Some of us go into the big chop life in the hopes that being a naturalista is much easier and lower-maintenance than the regular intervals of hair processing and manipulation. This is a particular selling point for those of us with busy lives and multiple roles to play. I sure thought it was when I went into it as a young woman starting my life as a medical school graduate and soon-to-be expatriate - and boy, was I so wrong!
