The Forgotten Mature Naturals: Embracing The Gray And Hair Tips

We are familiar with some of the anecdotes related to the mature woman; “with age comes wisdom, experience teaches wisdom.” We have laid the questions to rest as it relates to being too old to go natural.

The thing is however, mature naturals are out there and they want the world to know that they too have been liberated. There is just one little fly in the ointment. Many of our mature naturals have been submerged for so long that they feel like the forgotten naturals.

They feel that natural hair products among other things are aimed at younger women and they implore product manufacturers to use at least some images of mature naturals.

If nothing else, we have heard you fellow naturalistas. We have come to see that you too want to be chic and fabulous but that much of what you see does not represent your toned down or conservative palate. Move over young blood because there is a new thing happening!

There is a wave of dynamic mature naturalistas who have decided that it’s about time that they let their voices be heard and I can tell you that these women are rocking some fierce ‘dos.

Mature naturals on youtube

One thing I noted is that this community of natural women believes in acting in a spirit of excellence in everything they do. For this reason their results – be it hair length goals, styles or quality of their videos- are delightfully refreshing.


Yes ladies, if I am to be honest, I’d say that some of these mature women put me to shame with the glamorous dos that they are able to perfect.

This video introduces the community of mature naturals and shows the varied looks that many mature naturals are comfortable with.

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.
