Yes, I can comb my hair..

Society assumes since I am a black woman with natural hair I cannot do simple tasks like combing my hair. My hair texture is extremely curly and what some consider nappy. I have broken combs in the past and will continue to break them in the future. My problem with people asking me can I comb my hair stems from the ridiculous belief that your hair is only nice if it’s straight. I am BLACK, my hair does not grow straight and I’m not sorry.
