Why You Should STOP Comparing Your Natural Hair Now!


Yes, before you even ask, it is great to pull inspiration from other naturals. Maybe you like the style, color, shape, or health of someone’s hair and that helps you keep yourself on track. It becomes terrible and works in reverse when you begin to compare every single curl down to the last inch and the woman’s hair that inspires you actually just makes you feel crappy about your own hair! Firstly, love what grows out of your scalp. If it is super kinky, dry, prone to breakage, and an all around pain in the rear, so what! It is yours and fawning over Tracee Ellis Ross’ hair and asking the natural hair Gods why yours isn’t more like hers isn’t going to help. When you just wake up and say “Yeah, Tracee has some beautiful hair and it’s probably more manageable than mine, but my hair is the bomb too because it is mine!”. Trust me, I know how difficult it can be because I have been there wondering why my hair is like this instead of that. Just stop and watch your hair flourish!

  1. Love it because my hair is super kinky no curl definition at all and frizz central in any kind of weather but this is what has been chosen for me so I love and take care of her to the best of my abilities šŸ™‚ Thanks a mil dear šŸ™‚


  2. Ironic that you would use Tracee as I read on her blog that she used to wish to have different hair as well.


    1. Isn’t that the craziest thing? We are all more blessed with what we have than we think. Hair and beyond!
