I’m Not Part Of The Natural Hair Movement

Last week I mentioned in an email that I was sick and tired of “religious naturals”, but now I want to speak on it.

For years now I've noticed how black women react to each other being natural.

I read blogs that slammed Solange Knowles for having “dry, unkempt, needing to be combed” hair.

Are you serious?

I've experienced this myself. Someone even said I looked like a “plucked chicken”! LOL

That one was funny…

I remember posting something to my blog about hating my then RELAXED hair. I called my RELAXED hair my NATURAL hair and all hell broke loose!

I was called unprofessional, un-knowledgable and a few other things when all I meant was that my hair was natural meaning no weave.

Later on I received some “feedback”, if that's what you want to call it when I posted a pic of my truly NATURAL hair that was colored.

In the pic I mentioned being natural only to have a know-it-all tell me I wasn't natural because my hair was chemically colored. She went on to say it was not pure therefore not natural.

Duh… I'm fully aware that any chemical we put in our hair that alter's it's natural state technically mean's it's no longer natural.

She was right, and from that moment on I made a point to choose my words carefully so hell won't break loose again.

Yes, right now I'm Natural… but I am NOT part of the natural hair movement.

I'm part of the healthy hair movement, and that doesn't mean if your hair is not natural it's not healthy.

That means if your hair is relaxed, colored, braided, long, short, curly, kinky, or everything in between it all about keeping it healthy so it's able to grow.

That's why I'm here to help educate you on keeping the hair you have healthy.

That's why I'm always talking about protective styles, getting your hair trimmed every 8 to 12 weeks, conditioning your hair, and everything in between.

All of these things are important if you want to have healthy hair, and the best part is I'm a 1-stop-shop for all of the above!

Be blessed,
