Days ago,i was watching some hair tutorials on facebook with my bestie's sisters,of which the eldest is Natural.
They kept saying 'Wow' 'Beautiful' 'They are not Nigerian right？'.
I was awestruck.I passed them a stern look and still smiled.
I knew where they were driving at,that Nigerians can't have such beautiful,or probably a long healthy hair.
I surfed through the videos,and i showedthem @Naturallytemi
's videos.I went on 'This lady is a Nigerian,a yoruba at that'.
They were non-plussed, 'Auntue Esther,shes Nigerian？'.I replied yes,seeing that in a way,i have changed their mindset.
I began to lecture them:
In time memorial,we,Nigerians believe that our hair probably can't grow passed our shoulders,and when we see someone whose hair surpasses that,you here comments like 'Wow,yout hair looks likrle Indian hair,so healthy'
First off,how can an india hair,grow on a Nigerian head？
Theres this mental segregation,that,its,only those from Asia,America(African-Americans,and white)Europe,etc that can grow beautiful lucious hair.
I just want to point out that fallacy.
Nigerians can grow any length of hair they want.@Naijahaircangrow
Our hair is healthy too.
Do not blame people when they share their hair journey,because overtime,we've been made to believe that its only relaxed/straight hair that can grow.
