I’m officially over tapered haircuts on natural hair! Let me back up and say, I’m over it on ME. Now that my tapered hair divas are no longer offended, let me proceed. I got my first natural hair cut back in 2013, and the stylist gave me the tapered cut. If you missed out on it, check out my YouTube video of it here.

It took a long time for me to get this final review out and I’m not sure why. 🙂

The music being played in this demo is by this DOPE D.C. producer RODDYROD. You can find him on Soundcloud or his BandCamp Page.

Some folks call it “Slave Hair”, “Nappy”, “Knotty”, “Beady Bead” so on and so forth. For some reason, the 4C hair texture label has received a bad wrap.
