When Going Natural Goes Badly

I hate labels but within the natural hair community we have them and they can be equally amusing as they are sad. This journey (going natural or accepting your curly hair) is not as easy as some profess nor as hard as others scream at the tops of their lungs. 

It’s a process that requires experimenting, adjustments, and managing in order to attain perfection, or something close to it. Here are a list of natural hair pitfalls that could make your journey go very badly if you don’t change your ways!

The Denialer

This is the newly natural that refuses to accept that she needs to make changes in her regimen and habits. She just carries on using all the same products she did while her hair was relaxed and assumes her hair will adapt…um, no. Going natural requires adapting to your hair’s changes and using products and techniques that will help your hair to thrive and be healthy.

Product Review - I Love My Fro Shea Butter Whip-Water Based Moisturizer

I was asked to review the Shea Butter Whip from the ILoveMyFro line that I hadn't heard of but was eager to check out.  For one, I'm not a big fan of Shea butter and I wanted to change that and two, Shea butter is moisturizing and I'm in dry Colorado and always on the hunt for something to keep my tresses moisturized.

Is BIG Hair the New LONG Hair?

I   LOVE   BIG   HAIR!  

I absolutely love it and crave it and desire it....I want my hair so big it runs into door jams when I walk into a room.  I want my neck to hurt from carrying that bigness around.  I want to be removed from movie theaters because NO ONE can see past my hair.  Yea, I'm THAT kind of Natural!

It's no secret that 'LENGTH' is the big winner for what most naturals are trying to achieve.  There are tons of products on the market claiming to grow your hair faster than humanly possible from vitamins, to hair conditioners and even to less traditional methods like the Inversion method or using Monistat in your hair.

Natural Hair and Advertising...Too Much For Some?

Natural Hair and Advertising...Too Much For Some?

"I am sick of seeing all those commercials with ethnic/nappy/natural hair!"

I'm not gonna lie and say I remember WHERE I actually read this comment, I must also admit I am paraphrasing because I was only skimming a mag and my mind was actually somewhere else.  Later that day, when I slowed down for a minute, I was really shocked and wished I would have paid more attention to the comment.

After I let the thought sit and fester I started asking myself why someone would be offended or angry by Black women with Natural hair being used in commercials.   

Could it be some relaxed women are feeling the media thinks all Black women are Natural?  

Could it be some Naturals feel these are merely marketing ploys to get Naturals to buy their products?  

Are these just some Black woman who find the 'ethnic' or Natural look embarrassing? 

Not a clue but I thought it would be interesting to give my take on them.
