so recently, i posted photos of a curly-haired natural and someone left a comment expressing envy of the woman’s texture, while demeaning her own texture.
first let me say that i am in the ‘nappy’ category of naturals. i don’t have curls or waves. i have napps. nothin but napps but somehow, oddly, i’ve never wanted a different texture of hair. i mean i know what society supposedly thinks, about wavy/curly hair being better, i guess i never internalized it to the point that it caused me to want other hair. (although, i have fessed up to hating my hair in the past…)
but still, i don’t want to discredit the struggles of others.
so, i want to hear it. do you ever hate/disdain your own texture and wish that it was wavier or curlier? and more importantly, why? is disdain/hatred too strong a word? or is it more like mild displeasure? oh, and i don’t know if this even exists, but are there wavy/curly women out there who secretly envy nappy women?
be real about it, even if you have to leave an anonymous comment…
