This 10 hair issues was originally seen on Essence.com. But here, what I want to say is that we don’t need the african american wigs. We cringe at the thought of anyone calling textured hair “difficult” or “bad.” Despite the constant onslaught of curls and coils being policed pretty much everywhere, it’s important that we continue to embrace our natural locks; for ourselves and others who may struggle with appreciating their mane, too. If our hair journey has taught us anything, it’s that black hair is incredibly diverse; even the curl patterns that exist under just one hair type. We should love what we born to, the hairstyles, the curls even the eyes, face and fingers. Every women have hair issues, the only different is just what the issues is, but the confusion and worry is the same. So you are not so different and the life is beautiful like others. Love yourself and To hair issues!
