I am a fan of Serayah and her curly hair, who isn’t? However when I read her interview with the New York Daily News where she admitted that her fans get mad at her when they see her out and about rocking straight hair, I couldn’t help but think, it really isn’t that serious.
If you watch Empire you would have noticed that the actress/songstress always rocks her signature curly hair, which she has done all her life. The natural hair community cannot get enough of it because we want natural hair to be the new ‘normal’ for main stream, and women like Serayah help to push that agenda.
Things start to get weird when we start to dictate to people, celebrity or not, how they should style their hair. Here is what she told the New York Daily News about a fan that saw her out and about.
“She was so upset because my hair was straight,” she recalled of a recent run-in with a female fan. “But I get it. I’ve grown up with curly hair and being biracial and things like that, so it’s been a part of my life and I completely understand why they’re obsessed that I’m on television with the way my hair is.”
The natural hair movement is about accepting our curly hair as is without any chemical alteration, especially for those of us who have struggled with letting go of the relaxer for so long.
Wearing your hair straight does not make you ‘less natural’, and it is ridiculous for someone to police what styles you choose to wear, even if you like their hair when it is curly.
If anything we should be very appreciative of the versatility of naturally curly hair. We say let the girl live, even though we stan for her hair as much as we are a fan of the actress herself, Serayah can rock her hair straight if she wants to, sheesh!
Do you care when curly haired celebrities rock straight hair?

Youd be surprised how the “new naturals” attack women on how to wear their hair. I call them “new naturals” because wearing your hair natural is not a new phenomena.

Why tf do they care?! Our hair is versatile, it will go back if she wants if to.

She’s beautiful either way so why does it matter? No one likes the same style all the time every now and then every female gonna switch her hair up a bit.
Phoenix McGee says
People are insane. Natural is not as strict as some people would like to believe, and as long as her hair is healthy who cares? I simply Can’t do curly styles. It isn’t for everyone and if it ain’t your hair why be worried?
Cynthia Amos says

Tammie Faulkner Taylor says
There ARE far more serious causes to be “outraged” about.
