Other. Honestly, I don't really know how to describe it. It is thick curly and sometimes unruly.

Big twists, it's easy and I love it.

I don’t lol. I don’t wrap my hair at night because it feels uncomfortable for me.

Accepting/ loving my hair the way it is.
Do you have any advice to women who are still struggling to love their natural hair?
It is okay if you're struggling to love your naturally beautiful hair; it took me a while too. I wish I loved my hair earlier; it would have saved me a lot of headaches.
