Not everyone’s hair is blond, straight, wavy, looks good with scrunchies, can rock a fancy part, cooperates during a blowout, be flat ironed, or has a positive reaction to electric-purple dye. There’s more to hair than just how it flows and falls—it’s what you’re saying while you wear it. Is it just a hairstyle? No, sometimes it's a lifestyle. We’re talking kinky, patchy, tight to your head, strangely positioned, extensions, and a pinch of Rasta. See above.

—Déjà Turner

Déjà is one of ITG's extraordinary interns, and has worn her hair in locs for over a decade.

    What a coincidence, I just installed waist length braids, great for warmer weather and easy to maintain. Nice article.

    Love this! But are y'all sure that's India in photo 21?

    Braids are the perfect go-to style for me by giving my hair a break and for vacationing.
