Hi y’all, my name is Joy and I learned about my hair type when I was around 17 years old. I was on Aunty Google’s search page and I found an image chart along with the characteristics of my hair type.I think as humans we naturally want to belong to a category, so that we can share similarities with other people. Belonging to a hair category can also mean that you won’t have to pioneer your way through a hair care routine but easily find one online – or so I thought.
Our Blog Contributor, Joy, discovers that learning about your hair type is just the beginning of the journey. Read on to hear the rest of her story!

I became so aware of myself, and the things I “lacked”. It was in high school I began to have an issue with my gap teeth, my skin colour, and even my lips.
