In support of #StopRacismPretoriaGirlsHigh, we asked the TL staff and you, our readers, to share what you love most about your natural hair.

I love my natural hair because like me, you can put it through anything - braid it, weave it, straighten it, wear it up or down and it will always remain true and return to its original kinky curly form. It's the one thing that makes me stand out and represents who I am as a black woman.

I love my natural hair because it's a reflection of who I am culturally and as an African. Being black and being proud also shines through from how I wear my hair. If people of different races can wear their own natural hair proudly I don’t see how I can struggle to embrace my own and not rock it the best way I feel comfortable. I love my hair because it is so much easier to maintain and it does not even limit me from styling it.
