    who proudly wears her hair natural. I commend you for that. A few days ago I posted here at EP my hopes that the Afro that is making a comeback is more than a hair fad or temporary trend.I said something to the effect that Afros should still be seen as a symbol of black pride...

    I have no control over anything I do.

    .. You'd think I have a say so in how I want to wear my hair from day to day... NOPE! Everyone wants a hand in developing me, and that's fine, I just think you are going about it the wrong way when you tell me what to do with my hair instead of trying to have a sit down and talk...

    Natural "ness"

    I am glad to have found my natural texture and so many styles to do with it. I was brought up with straight hair and no choice otherwise but later removed all that and have enjoyed it.  From coils to twists to roller sets, I am having a good time. Would love to see...

    I hate when people who aren't black call a

    black person who gas nature hair "nappy or ugly" just because my hair isn't flat,straight and boring like yours, doesn't mean that it's ugly. it means that it's different and I was born this way. so why would I change it so I can "fit" in better ?

    Celebrate Nappy

    If you're black, or if you have close friends who are black, you are familiar with the term "nappy hair".   Many blacks have nappy hair, and they describe it that way!  Even some white folks have nappy hair. I nor my mother was patient enough...

    I Love My Hair
