Doing my own hair has always been a challenge for me. Back in high school, I used to flat iron it every day because I always believed straight hair was more beautiful. Unfortunately, that ended up causing irreversible heat-damage and ultimately breakage. I started wearing weaves and when that became too expensive, I decided to go natural.
These days, I’m pretty happy being nappy and contrary to what might people think of me, I haven’t put much effort into switching up my hairstyle over the last decade. I’ve worn a curly afro for years now, and I’ve grown to love it. But don’t get me wrong— my relationship to my ‘do has involved a lot of trial-and-error. I’ve broken countless hair picks and tried every product and hair fad you can think of. (And spent a fortune doing so, might I add).
But the truth is, I’ve always struggled with hair because I tie so much of how the hair looks into my self-worth, which I’m sure a lot of Black girls can relate to. In other words, if my hair is looking busted, then I become super self-conscious and not to be dramatic, but it ruins my mood. When I heard we were doing another I tried It Month here at Who What Wear, I figured now would be the best time to finally become fearless with my hair and try something new every day for 30 days. And since salons are currently closed, I took up an even bigger challenge by learning to do all these styles alone.
