Whether you've got kinks, curls, or coils, as long as you sport anything longer than a fade, I know you've been through this one.
This confession is borne from the mind when it (and the body) is pressed for the time needed to maintain natural hair and sometimes the pressures of society that still - despite many role models and media figures that show us otherwise - tends to push the notion that straight hair is superior.
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.
