Natural hair in Nigeria

Considering I’m Nigerian I found this as no surprise. My father isn’t too fond of my natural hair. Just two weeks ago I told him I wanted to wear my hair out ( I had been wearing a wig) and he said yea ok;he continued to tell me that when he was younger he had an afro (with a blow out). I was shocked at the way he just accepted it and made light of it as he walked out my room.  A few minutes later, he came back in my room and handed me a thick winter hat and scarf – to cover my hair off course.

Many people say that it’s the media that frowns upon natural hair but it’s also our own people. It’s time for change.
