My hair is a dense mass of coily curls that tend to be deep black with, sometimes now, touches of gray. Density-wise, she is so dense, it’s easy to lose your fingers to the coils before you even sense my scalp. Her strands are thick and not easily broken, and her porosity is low to neutral, depending on the part of the head you’re styling. She curls easily with a little conditioner or gel, and stays curled until the next wash day – she isn’t as prone to frizz or humidity unless I put heat to her. Which I do not.
My natural hair is fun. It’s quirky and has it’s own personality, just like me. And she rarely cares about what other people think. It’s been a long journey with her, and we’ve been through quite a lot together; but I’m glad she’s still here and thriving. We have a mutual understanding, now: treat her with respect and she will continue to favor me with her glorious coils!
