Both. I've been natural for about 3 years now and I absolutely love my curls, but I also loved them when I got relaxers. They were just looser and my hair didn't frizz so bad when it was straightened with the relaxer. That's the one thing I miss about getting them.
I wear my hair natural and I love it. I do think all black women should be natural for a period of time just to see what its like and to embrace their natural hair. Its unfortunate that we haven't usually been raised to appreciate the natural beauty of our hair, but I know history and politics have a lot to do with that. Now some of that is changing. Naturals who have babies are encouraging their young girls especially to love their hair. I'm not against all relaxers and all weaves, wigs. However, I think it says a lot about someone if they dread being without the fake hair and live on relaxers. Some people really can't stand to see themselves with their natural hair and don't know how to take care of it. And for beauty's sake, the health of your hair is important whether you relax, weave, or wear it natural.
I miss straight hair sometimes, but I'd rather wear a wig that impose heat damage on my natural hair. At least not until I get it to waist length. (If I ever get there, been bra strap length forever lol)
I love those hair bloggers though. Especially naptural85. Love her. And her family channel is great (DearNaptural85) - her hubby and baby are so cute!
Why do black girls have to transition into being natural, shouldn't you just have always been that way your whole life? The fact that so many black girls chemically alter their hair and wear weaves is so annoying and pretty disgusting. Self hatred much?
