I’d be the first to admit that rocking natural hair can sometimes be frustrating. There are great days and on the other hand there are bad days where you can’t manage or style it. However, the natural hair journey is very rewarding. Let’s explore reasons why black women should embrace their natural, kinky, coily, curly hair.

Embracing The True you

Embracing your natural hair teaches self love, self acceptance and enables you to walk in your truth showcasing your true essence. It’s o.k to be unique. It’s o.k to be different and it’s o.k to be whom you were created to be. Be true to yourself… hating your natural creation is hating God’s design. The more you explore caring for your natural hair the more you will understand it, manage it and fall in love with it.

Natural Hair Is Healthy Hair

Your hair is healthiest in it’s natural state. There has to be an alkaline disruption of the disulphide bonds in the cortex of the hair shaft when using chemical straighteners. Studies have proven chemical processing to cause a great amount of damage to the hair which often leaves it dry and fragile therefore susceptible to breakage, dandruff, hair loss, frizz and discoloration according to the International Journal of Trichology.

Versatility

Natural hair is more versatile than most women think. Yes, we can wear our cute puffs, but we can also wear twists, twist outs/twist out with cute scarves, braid outs, up-do’s, rod sets, locs, cornrows, buns, flat twists, frohawk, bantu knots, french rolls and honey the list goes on…

Being Natural Is Inexpensive

You spend less caring for your natural hair compared to the amount of money commonly spent caring for permed hair. It’s simply finding the right products that your hair loves! You also have the ability to create your own natural products made with natural ingredients you can find at most grocery stores. Products purchased to maintain natural hair often lasts much longer giving you more for your dollars.

You Inspire Others to Embrace Their Kinky Hair Too!

When you boldly display your beautiful head of natural hair you inspire other women and girls to embrace their natural hair also. It’s time to send positive images and messages about our hair and kill the stigmas and lies that have been associated with our natural hair. We have to embrace our identity that the world would like to strip from us.

Your Natural Hair Causes You To Stand Out

Being natural has it’s perks and standing out is one of them. It sends the message I am loving the real me and it displays confidence and boldness. We have unique hair and unique textures that draw positive attention. The boldness and confidence that comes along with wearing your natural hair is sexy! More people are beginning to fall in love with natural hair even those who have despised it.
