Do you wish that your hair was different?

Do you often look at images or videos of women with natural hair different from your own and feel envious of their hair?

When you wear your natural hair for the first time, your initial experiences can be frustrating, because learning how to care for and style your natural hair can be overwhelming in the beginning.

It is at this point, when you see women with hair “different” from your own, that you imagine that their hair care must be easier and you wish that you can have their hair. At first this thought process starts as simple hair crushes, but then sometimes they can turn into hair anxiety where you begin to dislike your own hair because you feel it does not love you back.

You start to tell yourself that your hair is not defined enough. Your hair is not shiny enough. Your hair shrinks way too much.

As a result you seek out products and methods to get your hair to look like all those hair crushes you lust after, but become upset when these products and methods do not fulfill their promise. But by doing this you are going against the original reason you have curly hair in the first place - you wanted to wear "your" natural hair. I am here to tell you that your hair is not “less than”, and while your hair may seem that it is not loving you back now - it will get to a point where your hair thrives.

When you find yourself spending time envious of other peoples hair it is like sipping a green eyed cocktail, the more and more your drink the bigger the headache will be the next day. Once you let go of all the angst you have about your hair you will begin to feel a weight lift off of you, and that is when your hair will flourish.
