Who one chooses to follow while on social media can be quite personal. You are behind your computer screen, your smartphone or your iPad and it’s just you and wherever your fingers might take you. It’s a personal decision that no one needs to know about, but alas I have a confession. I am about to share my snotty attitude about bloggers or vloggers that decide to go back on the relaxer train, its simple really…I quit following them.
OK, shallow much? Yes, I guess I am, but I still refuse to follow them even after finding out their reasons for abandoning the natural hair movement. The truth is I am a natural hair blogger and I consider that reason to be a valid enough excuse to remove someone on a new relaxed hair journey from my feed.
I don’t care why you chose to go relaxed nor do I care to hear about the transition back and your trials and tribulations as a relaxed hair blogger/vloggers so whats the point in lending my support?
I have hair interests that tailor solely around natural tresses and the idea of following someone who chose to relax bores me. I do not care about the subject I don’t watch not nor do I read up on the subject, and will happily move onto the next blog that sparks my interest. Natural hair snob? Sure, but I’m OK with that.
I’m also a liberal snob and a black everything snob. It’s my thing, and it may limit me as an individual but not everyone is everything to everybody. I have limited interests and time and like an old co-worker told me years ago. I only spend my personal time on and with the people and interests that I want to spend it with. Enough said!
I bring this up because I was going through my blogs and vlogs that I follow and came across one where the blogger admitted she was relaxed and gets the question of her hair status often. I immediately began deleting her out of my loop because I thought she was natural!
