Hair Typing: Learning to Accept The Hair You Have
I found this video of a vlogger I like (Mahogany Curls) on Facebook. Some women were talking about this (really getting out of control) issue some Naturals have about defining curls or getting a specific hair type. Most of you already know the hair typing system of 1(straight), 2(wavy), 3(curly), and 4(kinky). There are level between each one and it seems the most desired is in the 3 category. This has got to stop.
We all have preferences…I get that, but this need to only have a certain type of hair is ridiculous if it’s linked to what is deemed socially acceptable. All hair textures are acceptable and beautiful and if someone says they are not then they are limited in their thoughts and lives.
Check out this video. It’s kinda long but she’s really hitting home on what’s important and what’s got to stop in this Chasing the Curl Dragon bubble that some of us are trapped in.
Loving our beautiful hair Naturals,
