Natural Hair: The Experts

Published on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 in , ,

So by now at least 6.5 out 10 women you pass in the street are natural.  I like to call it the natural hair movement. Oh and guess what, everyone is an expert!  Now I kind of said that in a sarcastic tone just in case you didn't pick up on it, but in all actuality it is somewhat true.  I'll explain....

In some ways all the "experts" in natural hair really aren't experts.  They may have been natural longer than you and they may have more experience than you, but that alone does not make them an expert.  Now don't get me wrong, not everyone claims to be an expert, and some actually have good insight and great opinions. The problem I have is  that the ones who may just know what they are talking about a few and far between.  Everyone else, in my opinion, is equivalent to those annoying spam emails you get. They have lots to say, but aren't really saying much....nor have they really put much time into researching what they share.

What I am really trying to say is going natural, -if you are going to embark on this journey, is your own personal process.  So you will in fact become an expert, but probably just with your own hair.  Through my process I've been super thankful to find a few naturalista's that I can identify with b/c we have similar, but not identical hair.  I have even found some forums to have a few good tips here and there.

All and all kudos to all of those natural hair ladies who have researched and studied the science of natural hair!  Good luck and blessings to those of you who have decided to return to your natural roots.  Remember to believe half of what you read and all of what you've tried!
