Let’s talk about tex … ture!
We in the natural hair community are very familiar with the concept of texture, even if we don’t buy in fully to the categorizing systems thereof. I know when I first transitioned, I was shocked to find out that I had more than one hair texture growing from my scalp. Who knew?! Turns out it’s pretty common to have varied hair textures on one head. I must say that learning this made me have some serious revelations about why my hair behaved the way it did back when it was relaxed.
That’s where this video comes in. Enjoy!
So as random as the video was, the gist is I learned that the sides of my hair are the most delicate, do not like heat or man-handling, and must be babied to be able to thrive. I also understand why the top of my hair is so seemingly impenetrable LOL!
