It's Free #naturalhair

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Yes it’s the beautiful Free! The lady from the Hip-Hop hit television show 106&Park, which by the way I hate now; no offense to Tiger and the other girl. Back then when I used to watch the show habitually I never noticed the lovely Free’s tresses, and must I say they are ultra beautiful. It turns out that Free has been Natural for quite some time and is in love with her hair just as she is in love with her self, in a non-cocky way.


As I was browsing through her blog, she explains her hair story and experiences. She is also “pro-choice” when it comes to hair just as I am. She says, “Don’t just perm it at 2 years old because it’s thick and hard to take care of; save your baby’s hair for their choices”. I must say that this woman has become one of my hair role models after reading through her blog post.

Here is her story:

“So here’s the background on my hair: I was born with a head full of it (in more ways than one)! My hair is a mixture of my DNA, strong and stubborn in parts (especially on top of my head) and soft in curly in other spots, which makes me have what hairdressers call an “interesting head.” Here’s the real on my background: African American, Indian, and West Indian.

What does that have to do with my hair? Everything. Because I can wet it and it’ll get curly but as it dries it just rises up to that afro (even when I dont want it to). If I want a straight look for a night (and I mean one night because the humidity will curl it right back up) I use a blow dryer, flat iron and hairspray to keep it down as long as I can but I promise you in the AM my hair will be on its way back to its afro.”
