Let's Talk Hair! (Vol. II: Girl With Curls)
In this edition of Let's Talk Hair!, I have decided to showcase my big sis, "Girl With Curls." She is a natural-haired diva who was very reluctant to transition from relaxed to natural, but is slowly learning to embrace her natural hair. I figured she'd be a great inspiration to those of you who are also struggling to embrace your natural hair and or are on the fence about transitioning. In this video she explains, in her own words, her reservations about going natural, how she transitioned, and how she currently cares for her hair. Check her out:
Below is a slideshow of "Girl With Curls" sporting some of her various looks. She has very dense, tight curls, and although she has experimented with other styles in the past (such as twist outs, braids, weaves, and her natural texture in an afro), she currently prefers to alternate between a straw set and pressing her hair straight with a flat iron.
Hopefully I can get her to record another video showing what her natural texture looks like freshly washed and conditioned prior to straightening it with a flat iron. Thus, look out for more of "Girl With Curls" in the future!
