When Your Best Friend is Natural Too...

Hi Nikki,

I keep reading posts how folks are not supported when they decide to go natural and it made me appreciate how blessed I am. My best friend of 40 years is natural and she has been for 5 years running. She played a big part in my decision to stop perming my hair. I have to say neither of us ever had issues with our hair. We both had healthy hair even when permed. I can't explain to you how good it is to not have to explain the lingo or to have someone recommend products because they KNOW your hair intimately. I often tell her I am intimidated by the henna and other treatments and she very fondly says "you don't need it". I can take that with confidence because we often do each others hair. She has been dying to wear a puff and when I was with her last...I helped her achieve the look. She allows me to shop in her closet...because you don't know a PJ until you meet my best friend. LOL!

Included are perm pics of us! Her Stash and a video tribute to our friendship

this is so sweet. I feel the same about my BF but we have only known each other for 10 years. We decided to go natural together as well but she lives in another city so we spend hours on line and on the phone talking, sending pics. Hope we last 40 years. God Bless.. OH and luv the hair ladies. :)
