Teyonah Parris is a certified hair idol and source of styling inspiration for many naturals. But recently the gorgeous actress, who stars in Mad Men and Survivor’s Remorse, took to Instagram to keep it all the way real about coming to terms with her tightly curled texture. She posted the photo above with the following caption;
I love my nappy edges, my clump in the middle that never dries completely, the shrunken, fluffy, coarse kinks that God has blessed me with! Took me a long time to accept that my twistout will never look like those IG pictures I drooled over in their ability to achieve an immaculate twistout, that my edges will never ever be SLICKED FOR DA GAAAWDS, that my hair will consistently be inconsistent, and that’s everything I’ve learned to love about it! Girl, you gotta learn to love what God gave ya and stop looking over there to the left!! #RealLife (For those interested this is a Bantu Knot Out ????)
Ladies, what do you think of Teyonah’s honest words?
