5 Things you should not say to a Naturalista, in GIF

Hello Naturalistas,

How has your week been? and the kinks?

Now, because Beautiful Eagle decided to bully me ask nicely, I will quickly share the not-so-eventful way I got Uti to do the mane matter.

I know a photographer and he mentioned in passing that he was having a shoot with Uti and I jumped with glee, my first question was ¨Can you ask him some hair questions for me?¨ and he buzzes me on the day of the shoot to send my questions but I asked if I could do it myself and he obliged, asked Uti and he agreed and the rest is History ;)

I am sure that every naturalista is familiar with this, Here are 5 things that I have heard and I think should not be said to an african naturalista;

¨Did you cut your hair?'' 

For the umpteenth time: NO! It shrinks -__- 

¨How do you comb your hair like that?''

With a comb duhhh...

¨Are you going out like that?¨

Watch me *does the moon walk out of the door*

¨Can I touch your hair?¨

I meant it yesterday. NO!

¨You should go make your hair''

Oh No! you didn't!! 
Its made!

''You won't get a boyfriend, looking like that''

I have a boyfriend. 

Opps! I said 5, I couldn't help it. 

Is anyone with me? Please tell what else you think should not be said to ladies with natural hair. 


  1. I love number 5, lol. Hmm, Tomi, I have questions for you oo.

  2. ¨Are you going out like that?¨

    Watch me *does the moon walk out of the door*



  3. LMAOOOO! Hilarity for days.

    Like it's so annoying!


  4. 1, 2, 4, is so annoying and 6 is just hilarious

  5. Lol @ "can I touch it" . I'm like why, it's the same thing you have under your weave.
    Another one you should add to the list is, " you natural people are trying oh, with this your kind of hair".

  6. Are you a member of Deeper Life? , Won't you go and retouch your hair? , When are you going to retouch your hair? , Please go and make your hair? , What's with this natural hair you are carrying about?,

    1. LOL @ deeper life. I've not encountered that one before.

    2. This!!! One time I got a sermon not to join 'bad gang' cuz I fixed a weave and the lady assumed I had my hair natural for religious reasons. *sigh*

  7. lol....i asked Nicely...i need the phone numbers of all the photographers in Lagos oh but Tommie i'll need your's first :D

  8. LOOOOl..the boyfriend statement was too funny!!! My mum still asks me if am going 2 leave in house ''like dat''

  9. LOL! This is so funny... no. 6 is hilarious

  10. Tomi, these are 6 things, not 5. I just counted.
