African-American women are quite blessed! Along with our beautiful brown skin that comes in various shades and our broad noses that accentuate our strong features, we have the most fabulous manes of hair on our heads.
For centuries our physical features have been the subject of ridicule and disgust. And our hair has borne the brunt of the disdain. Due to being called every unpleasurable and undesirable word imaginable we have internalized the hatred shown to our beloved locks and done much to smooth them out in an attempt to mirror our white counterparts.
It is only in recent years that the black female has begun to push back against the negativity associated with our hair. This “natural hair movement” as some may call it, has taken flight and scores of women are now having a love affair with their hair.
Take a look at these outstanding natural hair blogs. They aim to highlight the beauty and versatility of black hair and provide support to the natural hair community with product and styling information that every black woman, whether natural or relaxed, can use.
