Do you feel you have to compensate for being Natural?

Do you feel you have to compensate for being Natural?

When wearing your hair in its natural state, whether you decided big chop, rock a TWA or are transitioning, it can be tough. Lets keep it real.

Sometimes you feel as though men won’t look at you the same or you won’t attract the same TYPE of men, sometimes you feel as though you won’t be accepted in Corporate America. Maybe you feel as though people will make fun of you and view your hair as “nappy”, or you will lose friends.

There are tons of feelings and emotions that can get stirred up when wearing your hair in its natural state, mostly because of these silly preconceived notions we have adopted as women, and as a culture as BLACK WOMEN.

  1. It depends. If I’m in a corporate situation, I’ll use more gel. Outside of work, I’ll comb it out. Unfortunately, at the moment, I am compensating for a really bad hair cut. In six months, I’ll look normal again.

    • Thanks for sharing! Did you get a tapered cut? I know all about the bad hair cut struggle. One time I got a little too slap happy while trimming and cut off an entire bang.

      Thanks again for sharing girl!

      With kinks,

      Lizz
