I have always probably like most, felt like my fro was not as attractive as when my hair was straight, or when I had weave and still to this day at times I have doubts, I've tried being natural several times and often give into "the weave" but I feel so motivated this time and I have been on a journey to be content with myself as a whole and that includes my hair in its natural state! So I'm using this site as a little fall back for when I have the natural doubts...because lord knows I will…Continue

In the United States (currently live in Ecuador now), in the last few months of my stay, my hair was PERFECT. I had everything, castor oil to shea butter.

Before my mum was the one who dealt with it or sent me to the hair dresser to get it in braids (which wouldn't come out until about 6 months later!!!). It wasn't until I turned 16 that she gave up and told me that it was my…
