I do this often myself... then I have to realize the truth about Natural Hair! My beautiful friend Eureka has lovely long natural hair, in fact, I featured her "Hair Story" here on 'Natural Expression' (Visit Featured Hair Stories in the Tab Area), anyway I informed her that I wanted my hair to be thick, Really Thick like hers! She then put her fingers in my hair and said, "Girl, How thick do you want it? Your hair is already thick!" I looked at her, and said to myself, "Duh Shren, my hair is thick!" I didn't even mean that, I meant to say, I want my hair to be long. Like Yours!
I hear so many of us Naturals say, "Man, I wish my hair was thicker." We tend to confuse our thickness with growth. What we really want is growth, and we'll get that soon! You must be patient with natural hair, it'll get to that length in no time. So the next time you wash your hair, and it dries and your hair looks shorter than when you stretch it out. It doesn't mean your hair is not growing! It's just thick, and trust me...that's what you want! :)
