I'm 100% black. Both my parents are black. Yet, my features seem to say otherwise. My hair is naturally wavy/curly and very soft to the touch, even softer than some white people. Since my hair doesn't fallow the norm of hair type that black women should have, people find it hard to believe I'm black. Everyone thinks i'm Indian. Why can't people realize african people have all types of hairs. And, yes, some types are more common than the rest but all types exist nevertheless. Not all my family members have the same type of hair, a lot of them have the conventional "nappy/course" hair which they despise so they always make a point to straighten their hair. I rebelled against my mother and continue to leave my hair natural and i love it. it's funny when people find out i'm black then ask me if my hair is real.

I never thought we did, but why not?

White people have different types of hair. =\

I didn't know there was a black hair norm.

I don't have "conventional" hair either - whatever that's supposed to mean - but no one has ever mistaken me for anything but black African.

Some think I have extensions and I've been asked what kind of hair I use coz they think it's something you can buy from the beauty supply store - but it's just the stuff that grows out of my scalp in good ole fashioned locs.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
