“I can’t go natural! My hair is too tough” I can’t count the number of times I have heard this statement. Even when I share my experience of going natural, it usually isn’t enough. I’m the lucky one… My hair is just “soft”… Wrong! I used to use Optimum Super Plus relaxer and left it in longer than the recommended time. The first time I had my hair relaxed (I think I was 11 or 12 years old) it didn’t take. I have kinky, tightly coiled hair, that shrinks to what looks like a TWA. I laugh out loud when people tell me my hair is just easy to manage.
