“Fibre Texture” Written by Umin
Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be happy with my hair, the way I have been in the past one and a half years.
People say, “a woman’s hair adds beauty to her appearance”. #Granted! But I’ll like to say “GOOD HAIR adds beauty to a woman’s appearance.”
Relaxing my hair was more or less a convention and I ask, is it really necessary to perm our natural kinks?. Back then, I would shave off my dead relaxed hair and begin all over again. This meant going through the whole process of growing it natural, only to destroy it with chemicals, being dissatisfied with the outcome and shaving it off again.
In my depression, I asked “would I go through this cycle forever?” I thought well, I would just give up and go natural.
Natural it has been all the way! A journey that began as a result of disappointment, has led to lots of fulfillment. More fulfillment came when I was able to identify my hair texture (fibre texture -ever soft- Type 4c). I realized that in the past, I had been doing more harm to my hair by adding chemicals to soften already soft hair!
Today, I have been able to attain healthy looking hair and length in one and a half years, that many years of relaxing my hair never gave me.
