Do you remember when you decided to return back to natural? Were you scared, ashamed, unprepared for all the negative unsolicited comments and suggestions by worried friends and family members? Some of them were ready to play 'Dr. Njenga' on you, asking you if there was anything going on in your life that was causing you to 'neglect' yourself and outward appearance. Others called together a family meeting, thinking you had joined some cult where you vowed to abstain from combing or washing your hair. ''Are you into art now?'' ''Is this a 'fashion' that's going on? Worried, they tried all means to convince you to 'make' your hair. Funds were raised, bribes were offered, threats were made, all to have you succumb and give up this 'natural hair trend' that you had started following.
