Could 2015 Be The Year Of Natural Hair Acceptance--For Everyone?

Could 2015 Be The Year Of Natural Hair Acceptance--For Everyone?

I hate to be so pissy on the start of a new year but as 2014 was pretty hectic for curlies, coilies and wavies, it is time to set the record straight on a few things. Curly hair is beautiful hair. Coily hair is beautiful hair. So is wavy and kinky and even nappy if you choose to use that word. I know that words are painful as well as uplifting but in 2014 we had a few tense moments…oh, who am I kidding…

We had some disastrous moments for natural-haired women.

From the Army dissing natural hairstyles with new hair regulations to the schools finding our hair distracting--you name it, we saw it, heard it or felt it in 2014. While each instance had its own singular negative core, there was a commonality among all…our natural hair was being judged and judged harshly. In my world of natural hair I am constantly surrounded by women of all races enjoying the natural hair that has been growing out of their head since birth. It has been a revolution from chemical bondage whether relaxing one’s hair or just covering up their grays.

More women are embracing their naturalness (I love that word) and that is mostly all I see, hear, breath or relate to. Sometimes I have to remind myself that is not the ‘real’ world for many women who find themselves alone and confronted with family, friends, and even co-workers who demean their choice to go natural.
