  1. Wow. Yup I know that feeling. And Nigerian can carry it on there head like why is it hair looking bushy. The first time I wore my hair out over the summer in naija I was like nobody will say anything . see as everybody in the hospital was looking at me like are u sure about this. One receptionist even asked me to go and comb my hair mind you I had a twist out . I was on shock then II remembered that in coming from the obodo where nobody sends you . patients didn't even want me to talk to them that day it was so funny

    4. Nigerians can not simply mind their business but I still love them.To most Nigerians,if your hair isn't looking straight like Caucasians own then there must be something wrong with you or you can't afford a relaxer or a weave

  2. Hmm,maybe.Things ARE changing,but slowly atleast here in Nigeria,here people feel as if they have the right or no entitlement is the word,as if they are entitled to comment on your appearance,hair is a touchy issue so they usually go with that and if they cant comment,their eyes certainly can,lol.I wonder how people in formal work places do it,i know you certainly have to grow extra skin to absorb comments and answer questions.I personally think its ignorance,and what people don't know in a lot of cases they respond with sometimes unperceived hostility.Things ARE looking up though,I mean this is how we were created,we can atleast try to embrace it.
    Ok that said,lemme go watch the video,slowly this time.

  3. Well for me it's a different experience I wore my dreadlocks for 8yrs to work and everywhere, had no issues all I I get are questions about if I was born with it how do take care of it bla bla bla everyday from almost same people lol last year I took down the dreadlocks and wear my fro and buns people love my confidence and choice of staying away from chemicals. So make them love your natural hair they don't have a choice!!

    1. Dread still goes down well on some if not most Nigerians because there are kids born with thsir hair that way and from what I heard it's not advised of the parent if that particular child to do away with it or the child would fall sick (._.)

  4. I'm really trying to picture your hair in this scenario. You make it sound like it was a distraction, with the way you had to keep bending your head, which it shouldn't be, whether relaxed, natural or with extensions. Sad that you didn't get the job you really cared for at that time.

  5. Lucky for me I don't work in a very formal environment so my hairstyle is my business and no one else's. I'd say they're even used to my quirky hairstyles so no one says anything anymore.
