It’s 6.30 am. The alarm rings, your hair’s a mess, you need to straighten it but you don’t have time and you don’t want to be running around the bedroom like a headless chook. So you walk out the door either leaving your hair out or tying it into a messy bun. You feel ridiculous, and ordinary, but I’m here to tell you that its not that bad, really it’s okay to embrace your natural hair, its okay to give it a break from 300 degrees heat, that only makes you look like every other girl who’s thinking the same thing.
Theres this preconceived notion that only straight hair looks neat, attractive and acceptable in todays society, some girls don’t even leave the house unless their hair is straightened or styled in some way. Little do we know how dangerous this extreme heat exposure is in both the short and long term. Those with natural curls will slowly loose their volume and those with wavy hair will be tearing at their split ends till their next hair cut. Thats the thing the more damaged your hair gets the shorter you have to cut it, then you put extensions because you want to feel more feminine and the extensions tear your hair when your take them out.
We can’t win, but we can straighten things out for all the females out there, lets change the way we think about and style our hair.
