And they are every bit as natural as those who wear kinky natural hairstyles for black women 24-7 and 365. So if you decide to grab your flat iron with built in comb for natural hair and change it up for a bit, do your THANG sis, and hey... Learn how to safely wear straight natural hairstyles HERE...
