Since going natural, have you found that you have an urge to touch your hair? Feel the texture? There is no “running your hands through your hair” for most natural haired ladies, however, I find that a great number of them (myself included) constantly put their hands in their hair.
Why do you think that is?
Let me go first
- I love to feel my hair texture. Having been used to years of relaxed hair, my unprocessed hair texture is still a wonder to me despite the fact that I have worn my hair natural and unprocessed for at least 4 years.
- Running my hair from root to tip just once tells me a lot about my hair. It tells me if it is dry, moisturized, too oily, not oily enough, frizzy e.t.c. This helps me decide how I am going to treat my hair. E.g. Spritz the hair if it is not moisturized enough.
