Are your curly/kinky hair texture friends natural? I noticed that my social circle of permed women outside of work have been on the steady decline over the last few years. My best friend still rocks a relaxer, and her hair is quite healthy (i.e. no split ends, no breakage). But other than her, I can count the womyn I hang out with on one hand who chemically straighten their hair outside of work.
I have made so many friendships recently that started with hair, Sisterlocks, or a conversation on transitioning to natural hair. Have you?
The weird thing is that I spend more time with and have better relationships with the women in my life now as a whole; and in general, those friends are without chemically straightened hair, excluding my best friend. My best friend is still my best friend, and I love her dearly.
Is it a case of birds of a feather flock together? What about your friends?
