    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 ?

    I Love My Hair

       I thought this video was really cute.  Sesame Street has always been innovative in finding ways to reach across cultural barriers.  Theres something for everyone.
