I consider natural hair memes an essential part of my hair journey because in times of frustration, it’s great to have something that you can relate to, humors you and inspires you.
Having natural hair isn’t a piece of cake and it’s nice to know that you’re not the only one having hair struggles especially with all the perfect natural hair pictures and videos on the web.
1) The constant battle of defeating knots and tangles called detangling.
2) Hairstyle fails.
Shout out to those naturals who get perfect bantu knot outs, twist outs, flexi rod sets and braid outs every time.
3) Managing to finally style your hair and then having your plans fall through.
I didn’t do that complex tuck and pin updo for nothing.
4) Getting bombarded with annoying questions.
Read a book on genetics.
5) Everyone wanting to touch your hair.
Please don’t, especially when I spent hours fluffing that braid out. Ask for permission first, not everyone is comfortable with you touching their hair.
Coming to terms with your natural hair struggles:
It’s alright to accept that hair struggles are a big part of being natural. It’s alright to accept that your hair won’t always look perfect. It’s alright to be frustrated with your natural hair.
You’re not going through it alone, I and others are definitely there with you. No matter how hard it gets, remember that you’re amazing and unique. Bad days will happen but you’ll get through it somehow and come out like the beautiful goddess that you are. Keep slaying!
