The progressive power of embracing our natural hair

Angel from the Natural Lounge wrote a post on this topic quite recently. She felt that some 'veteran' naturals were reluctant to embrace the newbies claiming it was just a trend or that the newbies were just 'jumping on the bandwagon' while the veterans were the real 'trendsetters'.

Angel's response is a very lovely diagram extolling the benefits of more naturals within our Black communities. I loved the idea so much I asked if I could share it - so said, so done. 

Isn't it cool?  I really like the bit about better products... ;)

WELCOME TO THE TAPESTRY OF ME.... These are my words and this is my journey, from 'there to hair'! My life, the lessons learned in and through love and loves ones; and my hair affairs.

Thanks for sharing, I hate all of that elitist crap. There are a lot of people like that in the vegan community as well! It's so tiring, and the silly thing is that they are trying to keep the circle small, and it just makes things like finding stylists, and products harder for all of us.

Thank you for sharing. I've seen more natural hair salons pop up in Orlando, and yes hair products that are for naturals have been showing up more and more on the shelves in stores. I agree that the newbies need to be embraced and encouraged on their decision.

People actually care whether people going natural is a phase or not? This is so silly to me.
