If you are spending time constantly arguing about what is natural hair, because you have natural hair, and aint nobody gonna tell you nothing, and your own situation is breaking and shedding like crazy, then your priorities need work.
A hair strand is a pretty simple thing, our goal is to preserve it so that we can enjoy it, how you preserve the strand is what we are here to educate and get educated on.
How a relaxed girl takes care of her hair, might be slightly different from a natural girl, and might also be different from a girl who has bleached blonde hair. The point is, how you get there and the information available to ALL of us is what matters the most rather than the differences between us.
How we can move forward
The thing is, after the scramble, the bickering and the discussions we are still left with the same problem of caring for our hair. To start, we suggest you go back to the beginning, pull out your little black book where you wrote down your goals 7 years ago, and see where you are.
Have you met your goals? What changed and do you need to add more goals to the list or just do the whole thing over again because things have changed in your life?
We also suggest that when you find yourself getting emotional about debates and issues that do not help you personally just tap yourself on the shoulder, shut down the device and go deep condition your hair, in other words walk away and get in tune with what really matters.
Additionally if you create content on YouTube or a blog then write or demonstrate something that somebody can learn something on so that we keep the practical stuff in circulation giving some balance to what goes viral. Debates are great, I will be the first to admit that, but your hair is worth more than the stress of an argument that just might be bigger than you.
In that spirit, if you are new here, please start your healthy hair journey at our beginners page. Happy growing ladies!
