Natural Hair Community!!!

So in 6 days I would have been fully natural for 4 months. So far my experience has been positive, I do get the occasional eye rolls and what the heck is going on with her hair? I have come across what I like to call the delusional black females who thinks the European standard of beauty is the right way, asking me why don’t you perm your hair? You will get more attention from guys and you will look better. Even with the negative opinions about my hair, I have gain so much inner humbling confidence in myself that it makes me sick lol. Also going natural has made me to learn how to do my own hair and learn different natural hairstyles, because I have no money to be paying someone to do my hair lol. With that said I have notice cracks in the natural hair community.

Me after two years of transitioning I did my own “big chop”.

Which has made me ask myself what is going on with the natural hair community these days? Why are we discriminating hair types? Is the hair typing system that crucial? Why do we have separation in the natural hair community? Why do some naturals feel the need to down people who choose to perm their hair? Why are naturals competing with each other on who has the best natural hair? These are some of the issues that I have notice since going natural, and I feel these issues will bring down the natural hair community. Please leave a comment below about what you think about the state of the natural hair community?
