I did these zigzag-ish cornrows a few weeks back….i promised I was going to write about it and I never got to doing it.
Well I went to a salon near my place to do this style. This is the first time in my adult life that I have done cornrows. The last time I did them must have been 12 years ago.
The hairstylist was not pleased with my hair, in other words she hated it. She kept on complaining of how its super hard and that i should texturize and relax it for easier management. She also told me that my hair would be perfect for “shaggy” hairstyles. Yes she said shaggy. I asked her what are shaggy hairstyles…she told me dreadlocks! I got offended since I had dreadlocks and they were not shaggy.
I was just laughing at her suggestions. I did get mad for a while but I realised she just doesn’t know much about natural hair.
I had gone with the intention of doing thinner cornrows but the stylist made it clear that its not possible since my hair is kinky…she said they will not come out as smooth if I had relaxed hair. I actually didn’t mind the outcome but before I left I told her to research about natural hair and we all cant have relaxed hair to make work easy at the salon.
