Is Natural Hair A Trend?

4 Reasons Natural Hair Is Not A Trend


  • In the 60’s and 70’s we wore natural hair because it was a statement that identified us as a proud black people. Today we know, more than hair defines us.
  • Natural hair is versatile. It is not just for Afros any more, but for Locing, twisting, twist-outs, braiding and numerous individual styles only we can imagine.
  • In the 60’s and 70’s hairdressers rebelled against natural hair, because it was not profitable for business. If it was not about relaxers or press and curl, and coming back for maintenance, your efforts to keep your hair natural could be sabotaged. Fast forward to today; stylist love natural hairs numerous styling options and they are embracing them all the way to the bank!
  • We are better educated. Chemical straighteners and blowout products have left us bald, thinning and devastated. Now, the world-wide web has allowed millions and millions of black women to vocally take a stand to be chemical free for life.


We love and embrace our God given beauty and wear our natural hair proudly. Although I often wear my hair straightened (blown dry) my hair has been chemical free since 2004, I vow to NEVER resort to chemical straightening EVER again.

  1. I think just about everything that's related to beauty has the potential to be a trend. Hopefully, the natural hair movement sticks around indefinitely but it looks like hair weaves and wigs are on a major come up.
