There are more natural styles than an afro & headband . yuck. Don't limit your natural hair to only wearing an afro. You can wear finger twists, 2 strand twists, 3 strand twists, twist outs, bantu knots, mohawks, and straw sets all with your own natural hair. And dont be discouraged by what other folks have said about your hair. The "nappier" and thicker your is.... well the more excited we become because there are even more choices for you!
