YOU ARE NOT ALONE, I ALSO THOUGHT MY NATURAL HAIR TEXTURE WAS UGLY AND AWKWARD
After being natural for about 5 years, my hair just didn’t fall the way I wanted it to. I never wore my hair down without it being straighten because it was just weird. My hair wasn’t short, it wasn’t thin, but when I wanted to wear my hair down it just didn’t fall right. It actually didn’t fall at all, it was just a fluffy spongy afro.
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR KINKY CURLY HAIR WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF NATURAL HAIRSTYLES?
I didn’t feel confident wearing my natural hair down, so I just wore my hair pulled back or up in a bun. Those two styles got old, so I would do a twist out with my hair and then pulled back or up in a bun. That natural hair style got pretty old too. After stretching out what I thought my only two options were, I started to wear half wigs that matched my natural hair texture, which was great until the front part of my hair got extremely thin. I had to stop wearing half wigs or else I was going to go noticeable bald.

I refused to continuously straighten my natural hair. I wasn’t able to workout as much and I wanted to and no matter what I did, my hair didn’t stay straight for more that 2 days without me having to go over it. Living in Atlanta, Ga didn’t help either with constant humidity in the summer. I honestly felt like I was running out of options. That’s when I starting thinking about natural hair extensions.
