Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie illustrates the different meanings of true love through this story of a girl named Ifemelu who didn't like the way she changed her hair. She later then learns on a website that changing for the better is a good thing and could take some time getting used to. Adichie writes, " I look so ugly I'm scared of myself." African Americans were often judged for their preferences of style and Ifemelu knew that. She didn't want to feel less because of her hair and tried everything to make herself different. Later on, she looks up the website, Wambui ( her friend) suggested and found a lot of quotes and encouragement throughout these statements. " She looked in the mirror, sank her fingers into her hair, dense and spongy and glorious, and could not imagine it any other way. That simply, she fell in love with her hair." Now that Ifemelu could be able to embrace her natural hair and be able to sink her fingers into her hair, she was thankful. She never thought one could love herself as much as she loves her favorite things. At the end of this story, Self Love was mainly portrayed as a gift and life saver for Ifemelu. It made her realize that not everything needs to be a certain way to fit in.
