The Need for Hair-oes.

In case you didn't know...I've been having a hair warfare since 2008....




I had a sincere NEED for hair-roes.

In his essay "The Need for Heroes," Langston Hughes informed [us] that heroes are not always famous, and they are not always the people we like to deem most significant. They are not always in the forefront.

After I decided to embrace the natural texture of my hair [circa 2008], I realized that I needed a hero. I needed a hair-o.

Seriously when I get down and out about my hair especially when I'm trying to detangle it, I go stalk natural hair photos to remember once again why I sought out the journey. I'm gonna share some of my inspirations.

Mop Top Maven


I've been stalking her blog for a while. Seriously. When she doesn't have new content I get angry. The LA based blogger/hair guru has a ton of hair health care tips and ingenius DIY projects too! She's undeniably inspirational to any natural interested in strengthening her tresses.

Reader Question: Do I have any natural hair onlookers that care to share some ways to cope with natural hair sad days?
