Recently I was debating whether or not to straighten my 2 month transitioning hair for a date or go with my new obsession – – the twist out. When speaking with a guy friend he told me that “straight hair is the ish”, and without straight hair, I “probably wouldn’t find a man”. Since I just started transitioning this led me to debate whether straight hair was still the preferred “go to” for a date or when meeting someone for the first time. I’m sure other natural or newly natural women have experienced this debate. This definitely made me go hhmmmmm……
Do you straighten for special occasions, for a first date, or when meeting someone for the first time?
I did for about 2 years into my natural journey. Until one day I asked my self, ‘Self, why the hell is my hair good enough to wear everyday, but not good enough for _______ (e.g. church, weddings, banquets, work events). It was as is if I didn’t think it was ‘dressy’ enough. Go figure.
Weigh in ladies!
