Reasons why being natural particular afro kinky nappy hair is beautiful

"Method Man" called it peasy, others call it unappealing, dirty...some don't think its easy to deal with or a mistake. Its grows nothing can change HOW it comes out of our heads, not yet anyway...but it can be relax and change WHEN it comes out of our heads.

Because at the end of the day as long as you love yourself, your looks, your hair, your skin no man or woman can ever let you feel small.

It somehow makes you feel at one with self, calming, spiritual, when creating styles for your afro

Your natural for you not for anyone but you

It has created a community

It can be straightened, curled, coiled, twisted, plaited, locked, braided,cornrowed...
