Natural hair is convenient, unique, great, easy to style, and versatile yada yada yada, not all the time! There are times when having your hair in its natural state can be downright annoying and frustrating.
Here are some picks for the top most frustrating things that us naturalista’s have to deal with sometimes on a daily basis with our hair.
1. Single Strand knots – You have done everything, moisturize seal, moisturize seal, trim moisturize seal all in that order, and still as you examine your hair there are millions of these little knots that will just not go away.
There is nothing more frustrating than thinking you are doing everything right and noticing something that may indicate that you are doing something wrong.
There are many ‘solutions’ for single strand knots all over the blogs and forums, one thing holds true if you wear your hair in its kinky* curly state the more likely these knots will occur. The only solution that may successfully work is keeping your hair stretched, moisturized and prayer!
2. You can never accomplish a great hair style twice – You wake up in the morning hit the bathroom and allow your creative juices to flow. Suddenly you have created the coolest flyest style ever and your only hope is that you can replicate it at some future date.
Two weeks go by and you try it again, but it doesn’t look quite the same as it did the last time. You don’t know if it’s the products, your creative juices have suddenly diminished, Venus is no longer aligned with Mars or your fingers aren’t working; who knows!
But no matter what you do there is no replicating that same style that you were able to accomplish just a few days ago. What gives? If this ever happens to you the best bet is to embrace the differences that may come about and rock the style anyway!
