Love Your Natural Hair

Updated on March 16, 2013
Source

I love the natural hair movement that is starting to evolve with women who have naturally curly and kinky hair. I'm seeing more people in the media and all around, everyday wearing natural hair styles. I feel like there is a freedom that comes with embracing your natural hair. It is like a positive boost of confidence; encouraging women and girls to love their whole being with more depth.

For women, our hair tends to be like "our glory" sometimes. That is why we buy the products and go to the salons. I don't think that taking care of your hair or pampering yourself is a problem at all. However, it is one thing to wear your hear relaxed or permed because you just want a new style. It's another thing to want to change your hair type because you feel like you won't be accepted, beautiful, loved or approved by others. One is simply self expression, while the other one is conforming and is rooted in insecurity. It shouldn't be the case, but occasionally negative thoughts about hair contribute to an unhealthy self-esteem.

I have always been "natural." I have never gotten a relaxer or perm. I actually grew up on the "press & comb." I still do straighten my hair sometimes with the flat iron, but I am doing it less. No longer is it, "I have to straighten my hair," but, "I want to straighten it (just) for this week. Next week, I'll try something else."


I remember seeing a documentary a few years back called, Good Hair. It explored the hair industry. It started off with a young girl asking her father why she didn't have good hair. I was disappointed because the questioned was never answered. My answer to the question would have been this: "You do have good hair. There is no such thing as bad hair."

Be confidant with your whole self...even your hair. Don't compare yourself with others. Being unique or exotic is a good thing. If others have an issue with the way you wear your hair, then there may be issues with their preoccupation.

Whether you wear your hair up or down; short or long; kinky or straight; wavy or curly...rock it with confidence.
