soo...what is it called if she doesnt have a relaxer or texterizer..and colored her hair? Is she considered Semi-natural...disillusioned...what if she dyed it the color of her natural hair? Black? Dark brown? What if she doesnt have a relaxer but colored the gray hairs? Just curious on you or anyone elses thoughts
Technically its not natural since there has been chemical alteration, but Ive had maybe 3 relaxers in more than a decade and my hair has been dyed for just as long and I consider myself natural lol.
There are DIE HARD naturals out here who feel that if your hair has anything like color, texterizers, even using products that are store bought lol that you are not natural at all.
My hair is colored brown, even though it's fading out, but my hair is still in it's natural curl state.
Its not that serious to me, why do they care if my hair is dyed? as going "natural" is a personal journey and for me it was about accepting my so called nappy roots, loving and embracing them, showing the world that Im not afraid to do so and that my hair is "good" hair. So what anyone outside of myself thinks about my natural hair (including sistas) is a non issue, because my hair movement is not about them at all. Ive had dreads, a fro, the chop off, twist outs and they were dyed too. These days I mostly wear twist outs. in fact mentally Ive come full circle to the point that it really dont matter whats on my head but rather whats in it. On a side note theres alot of sistas out here today with natural hair but relaxed minds.
lol So true!
I as I think so many others (sisthas)...think of the natural as just another hairstyle. I don't dig too deep into all the ramifications about hair colorings etc. I love mine. The freedom, I Iove. But like MsInterpret says...it is work.
Yes...lots of love, tender care, and work goes into having natural hair.
I've got to get that soap from Africa you speak about too.
Yes girl! Black Soap...make sure it's the real kind too!
