Hey dolls, I know it's been ages! But I'm back and I have a topic I want to discuss with you all. Natural hair is an epidemic, we know! My thing is, natural hair is glorified, and some agree some don't. Hey that's a debate for another time. I personally love my natural hair. I've never felt more "Me" than I do now. I recently got my hair straightened, and got a mixed response from it. A magnitude of people thought I relaxed my hair, to the point where I was on the total defense defending my natural tresses. Others, just couldn't BELIEVE I was "Natural". What is Natural? So, according to the definition Natural Hair; is defined as "Hair whose texture hasn't been altered by chemical straighteners, including relaxers and texturizers." What upsets me most about this definition is (The best is yet to come) lol "An Afro hairstyle is sometimes referred to as "natural," but natural black hair can be worn in many other styles besides a short fro." Meditate on that! I do not have to wear my hair in an Afro because I'm natural. Nor, will I be conformed to a hairstyle because it makes others feel better about themselves. This natural hair phenomenon is becoming something that may end up dividing us, rather than bringing us together. Let's not make this something that will hinder us. We've come so far as a people, let's continue to move FORWARD. Just my thoughts. . . .
