Do you watch a lot of television or spend a lot of time talking on the telephone? Just think about what you could learn spending that time reading a book, magazine or an article about black hair. You could learn a lot. Many times, we as black women suffer, because we do not take our time to do research. You will not be able to just care for your own hair, but maybe you could help a friend, your child or a loved one. Learn how to receive knowledge into your brain and not waste on things that will not benefit you and learning about hair is great value.
So maybe your nearest library does not have books about how to manage black hair, but there are all sorts of books you can purchase at Amazon.com or at other various online stores. Sisters, if you can find a way to get information, do it. But if you have difficulty, because you do not have any money, you can always visit different websites that will show you how to grow and manage your hair. If you have been imagining what it is like to grow your own hair, you can stop dreaming and make it happen.
One of the biggest reasons why many black women still believe you have to be of another race to grow long hair, is simply because they do not take time to learn how to grow their own. They would know that's not true, if they would do research about growing black hair.
