She has some good info & advice, but she's overthinking, especially the part with the firends of convenience bit ... Travelling is an adventure, & it great to always be in tourist mode ... that's the time when you will naturally do things differently than you would do them at home. :P

As well I don't want to seem shallow or anything but this is a fact & it's somthing I've noticed with African girls abroad. I met a bunch of them in Greece, Georgia & Turkey ... They keep their natural hair, whereas in the UK they don't. I assume in the US it's the same. I know the stress black girls go though when they mess with their hair; straightening & weaves etc ... One night for a sleepover back home, all the black girls had to wrap & tie their hair before bed. The natural ones were fine. When we asked what was all that for they said their hair would break off if the didn't tie it down, we were like :shock:

I wonder if African girls feel less judged or embarassed about their natural locks outside of the Anglosphere. I never asked any of them but I wanted to.

I do think Black women outside the Anglosphere, are more likely to be in-tune with their natural appearance (and much more comfortable with themselves) than let's say...African American women. Part of it is due to racism and the standard's of "White beauty" around the world, unfortunately. I've posted tons of stories of White-skin creams being sold in India, China, and African countries. Being 'dark' is not seen as beautiful in comparison to White people to most people in the world...

Yah Zboy that's true. Black girls should just let free & wear their natural hair ... if you every get a bunch of cotton squeeze it, that's what their hair feels like, same texture. Someone invite her to the forum, let's find out :)

Ok I went to her YouTube channel and her website and contacted her inviting her here and showing her this thread. Hope she responds. I knew a black girl who taught English in Korea before. I wonder if she's the same one.

Here is her website by the way:
