I've lost a good night's sleep from looking at natural hair tutorials on YouTube.I've almost cried when my hair didn't come out like a YouTube vlogger's.I HAVE cried when my hair didn't come out like a YouTube vlogger's.I shop CVS' SheaMoisture BOGO sales.I'm running out of space to store all of my products.I don't share my products, even though I know I will never use them all.Parting with my products, even the ones I don't really like, gives me separation anxiety.Feelings of anxiety flood my body every time I do a twist-out.Feelings of rage flood my spirit every time I wake up and my twists are still wet.I've surrendered my life to the Lord and prayed for my hair to come out as I envisioned.I get slightly annoyed when people who always wear weaves say they're natural, even though their hair has nothing to do with my well-being.I've bought Jamaican Black Castor Oil because edges are to my hair what eyebrows are to my face.I wash my hair at least once a week.I always have coconut oil in my home.I sleep with some kind of satin fabric on my head every night.I have a hair steamer because moisture is an investment.I attend natural hair conventions, brunches, and events of the like.I buy curl soufflés and gellys, even though they all do the same thing.I've tried to make my own hair products before.I still make my own hair products.I know about all the ~good~ natural hair products that aren't in big stores yet.I detangle every time I shampoo my hair.I hide my "good" products whenever my friends come over.I have mastered a wash-n-go routine.I have, or would, ask a natural hair blogger for a pic when I saw them in public.My Instagram feed is mostly pics of black women with fly natural hair.I follow at least five natural hair accounts.I educate (yell at) my male friends when they don't like women with natural hair.I do Bantu knot-outs to switch up my curl pattern sometimes.My Bantu knots actually look good enough to wear out of the house before I untwist them.
