What Hair Type Do You Have?What hair type do you have? When one thinks about natural hair it is often perceived as being hard, knotty, kinky or just plain boring. I remembered growing up when it was time to get your hair braided. The process of your mother having to comb you’re hair or having to get out the ironing comb plays a major part in why most people prefer to straighten their hair.
Now for those of you that don’t know what an ironing comb is, it is a metal comb used to straighten moderate to coarse hair to create a smoother hair texture. The modern type can be seen below.
These ironing combs are then placed over the stove. Thinking about it now I can feel the burn, some of you ladies will know what I’m talking about. Sitting in a chair and your mother telling you to keep your head quiet while she straightens your hair.
These experiences have their part to play in why some women prefer to straighten hair and use many natural hair products. These products help with the stress of dealing with it.
Society and the media have also indoctrinated us into thinking that having straight hair is better than embracing our natural God-given.
Now I’m not going to lie, having natural hair can be a bit of a challenge. I would know, having to decide on what to do with it. Should I braid it, weave it, rock a twist out or just put the hair up in one. But in my experience, all hair can be challenging whether it’s weave, braids or natural hair you have to maintain your hair regardless, so really and truly there is no such thing as the natural hair struggle.
