      Oh pls give it a rest! #teamnatural tag is used all over the place. BN didn’t create it. Either you find the Tutorial useful or you don’t. ‘simplez’! Why must you guys always try to turn every natural hair post on BN to a natural vs relaxed issue. If you don’t like it, then don’t click on the Link. I find the Posts interesting…

    Regardless of what hair you have ie permed or not permed you can do Bantu knots. I have a relaxed hair but I don’t like using curling iron. So I do Bantu knots. Meanwhile this term natural hair annoys me. So because I have a permed hair turns it to what? Some of us use cream to alter the the way our skin is eg if u have a very dry skin you will use cream that will moisturizer your skin so does that turn your skin to a processed skin. Even if u bleach ur skin ur skin is still natural.

      It’s paining you abi? Nobody kuku said anything about relaxed hair or anything against it … You’ve just proved insecure

      And FYI when you bleach your skin… It is no longer in its natural state .You’re obviously uncomfortable about this that is why you’re defending and trying to justify what nobody asked about

    I’ve heard of and seen examples of 4A and 4B. Please, after 4C, what other hair type is there? Because I’m convinced that my hair is somewhere around 4Z if there’s anything like that lol. That must be why none of these tutorials work for me. That must be. Ah ahn, kilode? Afterall I follow all the cooking tutorials and get the expected results, how come when it comes to hair, my own nor dey just gree?

    It’s great for tranitioners but I just like to afro puff and go. all I need is acv rinse my hair and put my leave in conditioner and go on my way.

    My hair is always vry hard to comb after I go out with it in its Afro natural state, nd this always reduces d length of my hair. How best can u manage ur hair or will I say comb it so it won’t break mch after going out with it

    @Sally never comb your hair without condition in it, which means you have to condition your hair a least once every week and always moisturize before you comb, make sure its a bit damp then comb from your ends to root. i always wear my hair on bantu knot out it works for me and its a great protective hair style for both transition-er and naturals
