Is a figment of your imagination, a marketing ploy & I’m sick of hearing about it.
Trust me, I know of what I speak, I’ve had “natural hair”* my whole life. Bullsh!t memes like the one above really grind my gears. Whoever told you that your hair is difficult or out of control or requires expensive products to “manage” is lying to you.
Natural hair is not rocket science. Wash it, throw some hair grease in it, style it. Trot into the world with a smile on your face. Anyone who tells you differently is looking to take all ya coins.
Honestly if your hair is that much of a struggle why keep it “natural?” I mean honestly WHO CARES if you have a relaxer? Will you not be “down” anymore? Does it mean you hate your Blackness? NOOOOOO!
IDGAF what some small minded natural hair nazi says about my hair, and you shouldn’t either! If anyone says that bullshit to you just remind them that Whoopi has natural hair and Michelle Obama doesn’t, and MObama definitely loves her Blackness and Black people WAAAAAYYYY more than Whoopi’s cooning arse.
But I digress.
My hair for me is about convenience. I legit once cut all my hair off because I didn’t feel like taking out my box braids. I mean it is just hair. If you cut it, it will grow back. Believe me I get the urge to cut my hair every time I PMS, and most times I act on it. And I still have mad hair yo.
So in the words of the Bajan Princess Robyn Rihanna Fenty, Just Live Ya Life!
*Technically if you put anything in your hair other than water you have altered it beyond its natural state so…
