After so many trials and errors with my hair I have come to find out the my hair has an attitude problem! She is strong but very indifferent to change. She rejects most natural oils and rebukes 80% of the things I try. So I finally decided that although my hair is an extension of me she is still her own intity. I have given her the name Naja. Naja is African for Stoic and Strong, what better name...
I did some digging and I truly believe that Naja is the best name for my fickle locs.
