Society tells the world all kinds of things, and sometimes it thinks it can dictate what is good hair and what is bad hair. Let us be clear: your hair is lovely as it is!
It may feel hard to love your hair, but there are so many reasons why you should love it the way it is. This article can give you a jump start on what some of those reasons are.
What are you waiting for? Love your natural hair like the beautiful hair it is!
1. Go the Easy Route: Natural Hair for the Win!
Natural hair is the easiest to care for. On a rainy or humid day, spending time trying to tame your hair is futile.
Your natural hair, though? Your natural hair thrives on rainy or humid days. Your natural hair thrives whenever and under whatever circumstances!
Sometimes it is less about "fixing" your natural hair and more about finding what works for it. Maybe you need a different haircut to help highlight the awesome texture of your hair or finding a product that won't ruin it.
2. Natural Hair is Healthier
Your natural hair is healthier, not just for your hair but for yourself too. With natural hair, you are not putting a bunch of chemicals in to style it, like you would if you were to straighten or relax it.
The chemicals used to straighten or relax hair are there to burn down your hair's natural state to make it straight. Sometimes, those chemicals even go down all the way to your scalp, too, to make it last longer. This can leave lasting damage, so be wary of chemical treatments for your hair.
Grow Your Natural Hair Better and Longer
Not only is natural hair healthier for you, but you can also grow your hair better and much longer in its natural state!
When you straighten your hair all the time, or you get it chemically straightened, it can stunt the growth of your hair or leave you with too many dead ends.
3. Find More Products for Your Hair
There is always the option to find products that actually work with your hair, not trying to tame it. There are now more brands than ever with hair products to help you make your hair less frizzy but retaining curl and volume.
Make sure you take care of your hair after shower time too! Try one of our hairbands or our famous Turbie Twists. It can help remove the excess moisture from your hair after showering and is friendlier on the hair than a regular towel.
4. Your Hair Is Yours to Decide, and No One Else's
No one else can tell you what to do with your hair. Your natural hair is beautiful the way it is. Unfortunately, there are some who don't see the same way.
In society, people think they have an idea of what "professional" hair looks like, and they believe it excludes Afro hair. They couldn't be more wrong. This harmful thinking primarily affects Black women, who often face discrimination for their natural hair.
Things are changing. More companies are rescinding their outdated and racist policies, but there is still a lot of hair discrimination in the workplace. In the end, always know that you get to decide what you want to do with your hair and no one else.
5. Save Money With Your Natural Hair
You also save more money with your natural hair! This may seem counterintuitive since you do need to invest in good shampoo and conditioner, but in the long run, you do.
Instead of paying for haircuts, hair products, or tools to flatten your hair, you pay for a lot less when you decide to go with your natural hair. No more expensive salon visits either!
Now, with endless COVID-19 quarantine, many are embracing their "quarantine curls." They want to celebrate their natural hair!
6. Style Your Hair in a Bunch of Different Ways
With your natural hair, you can play around with styling your hair in a bunch of different ways.
You can put your hair into a bun or braids. You can style your hair by blowing it out or wear it naturally. Whatever style you choose, your natural hair will work great for you.
One thing you can do is scrunch your hair when it is wet. This helps give your hair more shape. If you find the top of your hair falls flat compared to the rest of it, scrunch from the bottom up (and upside down if you want even more definition).
7. Air Drying Helps Your Hair Look Great
One of the best things you can do for natural hair is letting your hair air dry. This is not always the most fun or comfortable thing to do, but it will help your hair in the long run.
Instead of using heat from a blow dryer and diffuser, do nothing for your curly hair. Let the natural air help your natural hair do its thing!
It is Your Hair: Your Beautiful Hair!
At the end of the day, it is your hair, and you can do whatever you want with it. Your natural hair is just as lovely as any other way to style your hair. Whether you have straight hair, curly hair, Afro hair, or more, all hair is beautiful hair.
