If you have natural hair then you will completely understand what I’m about to say. Usually the night before a big natural hair event most naturalistas will wash, condition and style their hair so that it is fresh and fly for the event. We Flat Twist, Perm Rod set, Two Strand Twist, Straw set and everything else we know will give us that “perfect” or “Haute” hair. You go to bed excited and ready for the morning so you can see what all that effort has given you.
In the morning, Right before taking out that first twist or perm rod, we say a little prayer that our hair will be exactly as we envisioned it. And then it begins, the take down…. for some it’s the most exciting moment because your hair has done exactly what you wanted. For others, it’s that moment of “okay…How do we fix this?” but the beautiful thing about natural hair is, you will never be able to tell who struggled and who got it right because natural hair is so beautiful and versatile.
