Don’t Give Up On Your Natural Hair…By An Afro Hair Stylist (Who Almost Gave up)

I thought it would be interesting to share with you what I have been doing to embrace my natural hair during its short stage.

I have been natural all my life, but my hair hasn’t always been healthy. I’m not sure how old I was when my mum said I was old enough to do my own hair. It wasn’t daunting or scary at all, that was only because I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
