Confessions of a Naturalista: My Hair Doesn’t Look Right
By Zaneta Mungai
It’s no secret that I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. Sometimes I think I have the perfect hairstyle and then there are other times when I just don’t like the way that my hair looks. I’m pretty sure that this happens to everyone, but for some reason I think naturals tend to take it to heart more when they don’t achieve a certain look that they are going for. Out of this frustration some people even want to go back to relaxing their hair.
But we have to remember that everyone has bad hair days. And if you seem to be having more than usual, perhaps something in your hair care routine needs to be adjusted. Sometimes deep conditioning and trimming your hair can make a world of difference in how your hair looks. Another important thing to remember is that the beauty of our hair is intertwined with its ability to look unique and “wild.” Big messy hair can be your greatest asset. It sets you apart from the crowd and puts your natural beauty on display. So, don’t get too caught up in achieving the perfect look. Perfection is found in loving your hair and giving it the best possible care. Remember to treat your hair well and good hair days will follow.
