We don’t hear nearly as much as we should about men owning their natural hair, so here’s my little bro Branden, featuring my other lil bro, Dylan (who loves wearing his hair picked out).
Branden’s been rocking his hair in two strand twists for some time now, and is now contemplating locs. Since I’ve been practicing my photography non-stop, he was pretty quick to volunteer as a subject. And by quick, I mean, when my parents pulled over for a hot second to look up directions, he took it as an opportunity to jump out of the vehicle and pose against the nearest building.
Although we don’t really see men wearing relaxers and then having this big epiphany to go back to their natural naps. What we do often see is men wearing their natural hair short, and not owning and learning about all the cool things their hair can do! I’m really enjoying watching my brother figure out how to take care of his hair, and realizing that he has just as many options as I do.
My mother thought that once I was out of the house, her natural hair styling days would be over… Who knew how wrong she would be…
