Most people will claim to love their natural hair and argue that it's one of the reasons that they are natural.
From my little observation, I have realized people don't actually love their hair. What they love is what they think their hair should be. Which in most cases is a huge Afro; preferably with looser curls and very easy to manage.
Allow me to burst that bubble. We are different and not everyone will have a huge ass afro. I'm sorry - or maybe not, but it's true. You just have to love your hair as it comes.
Of course there are moments my hair annoys me. I have a very busy schedule and I don't have time to start devoting time to my hair. It's like a demanding child. But it doesn't mean a mother should hate a demanding child.
I feel uncomfortable when people say "I don't like my hair, I wish my afro could be like yours", "I never knew natural African hair is like this, I miss my relaxed hair. "
Women love switching looks and if I want something different, I just use a wig or braid - I'm trying to stay away from weavons. It doesn't mean I don't love my hair or I would be wearing these styles every second while waiting for that huge ass Afro before I flaunt my hair.
Love your hair, own your journey. Appreciate other people's hair but don't make it cause envy. Every hair type, length, density, porosity has it's advantages and disadvantages. Instead of wasting time, data, battery life on the internet wishing for another person's hair, use all that instead on ways to make the best of yours.
