Doobies, Pineappling and Sisterlocks: What Natural Hair Care Really Means
Eight naturalista bloggers help us break it down
"Having a TWA challenged me to see myself in a different light," says Tamara Floyd of Natural Hair Rules, who has a longer style now but once upon a time wore a TWA. "You disassociate yourself from your long-haired, processed former self. Your TWA ... rebels against the products and styles that you wore with processed hair. So you pretty much have to re-learn your hair texture."
"After your BC, people typically assume you have a TWA because you're crazy, you're sick, your man is doing you wrong, you're losing your hair or you're having a mid-life crisis. You can be Beyoncé and people will think these things."
