Most black women would say they are not trying to be white but do these things to their hair for it to be more "manageable". Which deep down, and honestly, most black women hate their hair. Real talk. I've seen it with my family, friends, associates, co workers, strangers, and so forth. And hair is not the only issue but one of the main ones. I have always loved my hair until I embarked on my hair journey. I actually said it in the bathroom while attempting to style it on day last year. Immediately after I had a revelation and connected with GOD. He gave me this hair because he thought it would be the most befitting crown for me. How dare I hate it or call it ugly? It's like me calling GOD ugly or unworthy. Wrong answer. I love him even more deeply for that because I am part of a race that no other can compare. This is the main reason I went natural.

Also, believe it or not, we hate our hair while other races find it interesting. I model and me being natural actually make me more MARKETABLE. AS A MODEL!! Yes photoshoots, commercials, all that. I can't tell you how many gigs that turned me down or I couldn't apply for because my hair was NOT natural and they didn't want NO weaves either. Therefore I'm losing MONEY. That's the VERY wrong answer! Thats another reason but it very minor. It's mostly me embracing my natural beauty.

I think the video is right for most people deep down... Im going natural and its for many different reasons.. I think both Natural and Relaxed hair can be beautiful though... But I just have this voice on the inside telling me to be natural... Be me...

Need to find one thing to do the hair and stick with it. Hair breaks sometimes of too much manipulation.

JP I thank you for that lovely post about women who hate their hair. I pray this empower women to learn. Why else would Native American look at their hair the same way you do, myself included. I see it as a personal crown our Creator made for us. Specially made for all of us. A Native belief is to cut it would be calling death to ourselves. Special ceremonies are require just for trimming your hair. So who are we to complain. Let's love our locks Ladies and together we can learn to manage it better.

That's actually the key to growing your hair, is to love it, cherish it, enjoy it. If you truly love your hair, TRUST ME, it will be nothing for you to truly grow your hair as long as you want it. We all know if you truly love something you do things that you know will not lose that one thing you cherish so much. It's the same thing with your hair, ladies.

Jp I also like to add that when I get frustrated with my hair I think of those with none. So it's great to keep that in mind

Exactly. Be happy with what you got. Or be like some of those ladies in those photos who barely have any hair at all.

Just think that our Creator gave our hairs to us as a gift and we will all handle it better.
