My natural hair is naturally kinky more so than curly, with only certain sections clumping together to make a uniformed curl.
In the natural hair community, there is so much focus on curl definition and curl pattern, but what happened to celebrating the huge picked out Afro?
Even when I do a wash and go and try to force my curls to come together, I don’t end up being very successful. What looks like promising curls while wet, tend to separate and frizz as they dry. (Yeah I know, I probably just need more gel and puddings, or maybe I’ve just dyed it too many times…)
But in my experience, the only time I end up with some real definition is when I do a twist or braid out… Which you may have realized by now is my go-to style when I’m looking to wear my hair out.
So here’s to celebrating my big, puffy, curl-less hair. I sprayed my hair with a water bottle, put some Argan Oil on top, and this is what I ended up with:
(And yes obviously, it was just an excuse to practice using my tripod for some self portraits.. )
Sorry for the bombardment of selfies, I just love the puffy afro! Which when I was younger, is something I never thought I would say…
Do you love the big hair look, or do you prefer some sort of definition? Let me know in the comments!
