So in my time since returning natural, it’s been seven years in June, I’ve used different types of moisturizing shampoos for my natural hair.

Nappily Ever After, is a familiar story of a “perfect” woman raised by a “perfect” image of parents in a predominately white environment. She grows up with this mentality of having to be “perfect at everything in order to succeed.

The most annoying phrase to say to a woman rocking her natural curls is: “what did you use to get your natural curls like that”? Or “I’d go natural if my hair did what yours do”. People: NATURAL CURLS DON’T COME IN A BOTTLE!!
