Tougher Than Nigerian Hair, Part I

And speaking of hair.... I don't think I've ever done a hair post, have I?  What self-respecting natural has a blog with no hair posts?  They ought to take my black card, huh?  Anyhoo, allow me to hair.  I am natural.  No chemicals, no color (unless it's the spray-in kind that was favorited in the 80's), nada.  I'm not sure I subscribe to the whole "hair typing"thing, but if I did, I'd say my hair is about a 4ZG.  My tougher-than-Nigerian hair is really course, kinky, and coily.  Let me be clear, however: it is the love of my life.  Yep, I'm talking about my hair.  Let me say it again: My.Hair.Is.The.Love.Of.My.Life.  It is super-thick and grows easily, and when I wear it free in it's natural state, I feel like a freakin' superhero.

Note: It's the flash, but I have not 1 grey strand (no husband or kids :-)

Circa 2010:

Pardon the smoker's lips black lipstick.... I'm kidding.  I don't smoke.  You may surmise from this photo that may hair looks a little stay-thirsty-my-friends dry.  Natural hair has a tendancy towards dryness, as does thick hair, if you don't stay on top of it.  Well ladies, I have found the answer to that in the form of 2 dream products....and 1 dream stylist extraordinaire, who I visit occasionally.  I'll talk more about thoseand a product review in the next post. Stay tuned for that.

* What song (or verse) would you use to describe your hair?

  1. My verse for my hair would be "Hair long and black and curly like you're Cuban" from Snoop Doggs "Beautiful", I always loved that part thinking "Hey my hair is dark and curly like im Cuban (though I am not, haha)". Although my hair is lighter now since i've dyed it :x
