    The Top 11 Worst Things About Growing Out Natural, Black Hair.

    So, you've taken the decision to grow out your happy, nappy locks. Now for the hard part.

    1. Trying to find the right products.

    Yeah, you're gonna need All Natural, Leave-In Mango Shea Unicorn Oil for that. That hasn't actually been seen since someone stumbled upon it in a village in 1970, so good luck.

    2. ... And affording them once you do.

    Wait, you FOUND the All Natural, Leave-In Mango Shea Unicorn Oil? That'll be $1,299.99. In cash. Small bills preferred.

    3. Combing.

    Do you like yourself? Then this is going to suck. A lot.

    4. The Ignorant Questions.

    "Have you ever washed your hair?"

    Nope. 20+ years of dirt and dead skin cells has just been stewing on my scalp for decades on end.

    5. Seeing other people having to do 1/10 as much work for hair that looks 1,000,000x better.

    90% of your friendships will end abruptly due to this. Herp-eth a derp-eth.

    6. People asking to touch it.

    Go. The fuck. Away.

    7. The results of forgetting to wrap your hair that one night.

    God doesn't care how awesome that party was. You now look like a hedge that got weed-whacked by a cracked-out seven year old. Enjoy fixing that.

    8. The bald and beweaved who mean-mug.

    These are few, far-between and unadulteratedly evil. Haters gon' hate and then they gon' get pushed down an empty elevator shaft,

    9. Saying goodbye to hoods and hats.

    That fluff you're cultivating is a work of art. Flattening it with a hat is desecration.

    10. Keeping track of washings.

    Wash it too frequently and it turns into a dry, barren desert. Forget to wash it and things start getting MAD sketchy.

    11. Resisting the temptation to take the easy way out.
