Dating a Natural Bella

I’ll admit it: I think my hair is fly. My free and chaotic coils undoubtedly add interest and uniqueness to my overall look. People, men and women—black and white, stop me in the street, grocery store, mall and other place just to tell me how much they like my hair.

Now I’m not going to lie, the comments feed my ego and help keep my mind free of relaxed hair considerations. But sometimes I wonder if these people, Black men in particular, would be saying the same thing if they saw me at night.

What they see in the streets, grocery stores and malls is the finished product. They see me after I’ve taken the scarf off, unbraided numerous plaits randomly positioned all over my head and shaken it to make the coils fall or stick out just right. They don’t see the behind-the-scenes work that goes into it. But my boyfriend does.

So, I wanted to get his opinion on what it’s like to date a natural bella. Listen below to what the likes and dislikes about my hair.
