Natural - Kinky, Coil, Nappy, and Fro




What is it with people hating on nappy coils? why do people with natural hair have to prove to you that they want it that way? It truly doesn't make sense to me that individuals with natural fro should straighten their hair if they do not want to. I think leaving hair the natural way is liberating and adds less to the headache of spending too much money on styles, only to change them a lot because one has to keep their hair clean and healthy. When did it become okay to tag natural coils as "unkempt" and "homeless people style?" Nappy hair has its own unique texture and look and is not supposed to fall flat. It could easily get dry but steaming, creaming, oiling, and spraying it properly can give it a clean sheen. I have natural hair and would love to keep it that way because I despise hair relaxers. Relaxers are dangerous when not applied the right way. They can cause burns and also break hair. It's time for people to embrace the fact that there isn't one kind of hair texture. Let people be free with the kind of hair they want to carry, as long as they keep it clean and it does not harm you in any way. I admire Solange Knowles for  keeping her natural hair and she definitely doesn't owe anyone an explanation for choosing to do so. I love my hair and if you do not have anything nice to say about it, how about keeping your opinions to yourself :)
