Is my significant other allowed to police what I wear? NO. The police are very unpopular in my nation now, and when I hear "police" I think spot fines, and unnecessary rules which change whenever they like.

When I went natural in January 2015, natural hair was a new-ish phenomenon in Zimbabwe. Besides the mapostori women with their short hair, very few people wore their natural hair out.
