    Having natural hair is a magical experience that is different for everyone but also has some reoccurring themes for everyone.

    Whether you just had the big chop, are at that awkward stage or have been natural for a while certain things just keep happening to you.


    1. Everyone forgets about your personal space.

    You have mastered your regime and your edges are back so your hair looks like a beautiful noir cloud reaching for god which makes people want to reach for it, permission notwithstanding.

    2. Shrinkage and learning to love it.

    The paralyzing fear of heat damage that comes with going natural means using a number of no-heat methods to stretch your hair. And then having the shrinkage hit you soon as you leave the house. So you have to learn to love two or three hair lengths at the same time.

    Whatever hairstyle that is not on your head is the one you want. And at the same time, everyone’s hair journey seems to be on express while your hair has been the same length for the past six months.
