i am happy to be nappy. i get criticism for it but i also get a lot of respect for it. it's only annoying when people ask questions like "how do you get your hair to do that?" just a little something called genetics. i get it styled every now and then but i don't straighten anymore since i cut it in 2004. some people can go back and forth but i can't, my self-esteem is too fragile. i think that people who want to go natural should know that there's nothing to it but to do it. you can talk about it for years but nothing's going to prepare you but the experience itself. there are dozens of natural looks that people rock. it's not as simple as locks or fro. but yea, i respect and love my sistas no matter what they do to their head and i don't accept any disrespect for how i choose to wear my hair.
just took my hair outta the braids, i've got about 10 inches of length total, and 3 of those inches are relaxed (haven't had a perm in since last october), so i'm thinkin of cuttin off the relaxed part and goin natural while keepin it in braids; my natural was cute when i was in diapers, but it doesn't look right on me now.
