Having natural hair is so much work and comes with lots of responsibility. Literally! You have to use this oil, use that cream, wash with this, steam with that.. Most people (Me) would rather have the hair they can comb out in peace with ease and without pain.. Lol
But honestly, recently I’ve felt like joining the natural hair gang.. I know, I know, I never thought I’d say it too and no! I’m not going to cut my hair and start from scratch.. I was just going to leave it unrelaxed for some months and let the natural hair take the better part of my head.. It’s been 6 months since I last relaxed my hair and I was also beginning to change my mind again (me and my unstable mind) until I came across these Natural Hair bloggers and Youtube suggestions led me to some more people I never even knew about so I decided to share them with you guys. So in case you need some inspiration or you just want to see how well they look with natural hair or both.. Keep reading..
