I realize this sounds like cut – out from Chris Rock’s documentary, but I mean good, I promise! I want us all to love our God given hair! Our natural resources! And I promise one other thing : we’re beautiful, just the way we are!
Now – I came across this pictorial from a (apparently Vogue) fashion magazine circa 1997. I’ll keep the “so beautiful” comments short because I really want us to focus on the hair – This is how my hair looks like. And I bet many of you can say that. My unstyled locks are identical to those shown by Shalom Harlow in this pictorial. And normally, they’d be labeled with a “messy” attribute and I’d be advised to consult with a specialist before going out the door looking like that.
But you know what? There’s nothing wrong with your hair looking like that! Real hair, real curls are so rare to find these days, it has become an eccentricity to show them off! I’m so over curling iron curls! I’m so done with straightener’s twirls! I love my hair all natural. And if we stand tall, proud of who we are, we’ll make it fashionable again! Look at Franca Sozzani – I don’t remember seeing a single picture of her with styled / straightened hair! And she’s a Vogue editor, for hair’s sake! So? Will you join me in my natural hair crusade?
