Natural Hair Care Movement


A wonderful thing is happening: so many of us are electing to wear our natural hair that the NY Times recently did an article on natural hair care (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/09/fashion/hair-care-for-african-americans.html?scp=1&sq=natural%20hair&st=cse). I’m sure other articles have been written; however, this article covered such renowned websites as Natural Chica (http://www.naturalchica.com/), Curly Knikki (http://www.curlynikki.com/) and Luv Naturals (http://www.luvnaturals.com/) run by Kim Love who also has a YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/kimmaytube). I’ve blogged about these women and their sites in the past. However, the NY Times article was great because it allowed these women to share their own stories in their own words. It is thrilling to see how individuals’ desire to learn how to work with and embrace their natural hair is turning into what seems like a groundswell of interest. My prayer is that it reaches our young girls as well as our grand dames and everyone in between. A grassroots natural hair care movement! Whew-hew!
