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.
