That’s a picture from a few months ago of my daughter and me. You would think that having different hair types, textures, and lengths would cause discord between us, but it’s actually brought us closer as we learn more about the things we have in common … while we celebrate our differences.
My hair is coarse/thick, dry, with a medium curl pattern. My daughter’s hair is soft/thick, normal, with a tight curl pattern.
For African-American women, hair is a big part of our identity. Controlling our hair is controlling our life.
When everyone else’s hair is straight and doesn’t appear to pose maintenance challenges, it is easy to wish you had hair like theirs.
You don’t always want to have to go to the salon to have your hair loose-braided or cornrowed.
No matter what type of hair you have, chances are at some point in your life you’ve wanted to change it. Here’s how to love it again while taking a break!
There are options like these ponytail extensions from Divatress or other protective styles (like the one I’m wearing here).

As a little girl, I didn’t wear my hair natural. My mom put a relaxer in it to make it straight and easier to style. I continued to maintain these routines as a teen, in high school, and as an adult.
I relax and sometimes color my hair. I normally prefer to wear my hair very short, so I have always been willing to take more risks with my hair, since it is cut every 4-6 weeks, removing any damage that might have been done.
Since having kids, I have taken advantage of how my hair grows during pregnancy and started wearing my hair in longer styles. Although I have dry skin (and therefore a dry scalp), I have always loved the thickness and body of my hair.
When your hair is happy, you are happy!
