Ok I get it, thereâ€™s a natural hair revolution going on. While some seem to think this movement needs to be chronicled, discussed and lauded with every woman who forgoes a perm, for me it has just become exhausting. When someone forwarded me a post about a natural hair sorority by the name of â€œPi Nappa Kappa,â€ I almost vomited. I donâ€™t even like India Arie, but thank God she made that song â€œI Am Not My Hair,â€ itâ€™s about time we all took it out for a listen.
1. My Hair Is Healthy
Iâ€™ve had a relaxer since 3rd grade. Iâ€™ve also had an extremely healthy head of hair my entire life. Save some stress induced moments, Iâ€™ve never had problems with breakage, my hair falling out or an inability to maintain healthy hair. In fact, my hair grows so fast, men, co-workers and friends comment frequently. So that said, no, the creamy crack isnâ€™t killing my scalp. Iâ€™m good over here, thanks.
2. Iâ€™m Lazy
For some reason people seem to think going natural is less maintenance. Yeah, not so much! Do you realize how much more effort goes in to conditioning, â€œtrainingâ€, deep-conditioning, texturizing and curly pudding research in order to maintain a healthy head of natural hair?Â Iâ€™m lazy and have no desire to do all of that.
