How well do you rock your natural hair? Are you rocking it just to be part of the movement? Or to enhance your beauty or for both?
The beauty of every woman, they say lies in the hair. The African woman takes pride in the uniqueness that is found in carrying natural, well groomed hair.
Now, if you’re not part of the “movement”, or not seen the Afro look already back in Vogue, then I don’t know what you’re looking at.lol
The natural hair movement embraces black hair that is free from extensions, wigs or straightening chemicals.
The movement which is to encourage women with African ancestry to celebrate and enjoy the natural characteristics of their kinky, curly and hair texture is represented by a group of African women that provide encouragement, advice, reviews, hairstyle tutorials and much more to other women that are interested in leaving the creamy crack and going natural.
Regardless of all the hype, it cannot apply to everyone. Keeping a natural hair entails keeping your hair free of chemicals, which are contained mainly in relaxers and hair creams. Also, keeping your hair away from heat, perming, stretching and all that.
Very importantly, you need to know your hair type and texture in other to know exactly what works for it. Products and hair care principles are emerging day by day, so is your responsibility to know the right information as well as product that will not make your involvement with the movement a difficult one. This process can be tiring and expensive, the hair always looks good, but sometimes it takes a whole lot of energy, but of course, the better you get at it the easier it becomes. The truth is natural hair won’t work for everybody. You just have to know what works for your hair.
So, ladies! Will you take the challenge?
