This post is on a very light note. Something to make you smile and even laugh while reading it. We know the ups and downs of having natural hair. Our partners also know the ups and downs of our natural hair. Here are some things that they have probably experienced when dating someone with natural hair:
So you’ve decided to go from relaxed to natural hair. You’ve finally cut your hair. The big chop. Yay! You have freed yourself from relaxed ends. Time to show the babe so that they can celebrate with you. Your new look is usually met with surprise mostly. But they roll with it. Here’s to a new you!
When you bring home the groceries: Avocados, olive oil, coconut oil…And they start putting them in the fridge. They didn’t actually think these are for eating, did they? So you take your groceries to the bathroom, happy that you have organic new products for a bomb twist out. Yay you!
Dating or being married to a naturalista means being with them and their ten thousand products: 2 shampoos, 3 conditioners, 4 moisturizers, 5 oils, 6 curling creams and butters…Because how can they seriously expect a naturalista to have 2 products? Impossible.
Hair here, hair there, hair everywhere. Including on the back of your sweater, on your pillow, floors, car. Just.Everywhere. Detangling styling, combing…This stuff makes us shed like crazy. So bear with us!
Dating a naturalista means you will see them start to prep to wash their hair yesterday evening. It’s now morning and they still have a shower cap on their head. Still haven’t started washing. This will continue for another 7 hours. You’re asleep and they’re still twisting their hair. ‘Tis a travesty. ‘Tis most unfair.
Wanting to play with a naturalista’s hair or run fingers through it? This is a legendary myth. This cannot be done unless the hair is blow dried to become bone straight. Even then. They won’t let you play with their hair. Nope. So that it goes all frizzy again?
I know you know how it is to date a girl with natural hair. Ups and downs but they’re worth it!
