Day in and day out I hear multiple conversations on the surface reasons as to why ladies are becoming natural. A few are:
“I decided to grow my hair naturally because the chemicals made my hair fall out”
“I wanted to try something healthier”
“I’m trying a new look”
However behind every afro there are reasons to why we have gone natural, I called these our ingredients to our fro. I’m only going to give three in this post.
Being Natural is in Style
Believe it or not, there are individuals that decide to participate in certain behaviors as a result of the mass population indulging in them as well. However, others may look as some as simply following trends.
My Hair Has No Other Choice
While some ladies love rocking their newly healthy hair please do not be fools. Some ladies have damaged hair for perms, weaves, and other hair experiments. Before the afrocentric look became extremely popular again, these young ladies were trying their best to find ways to make their damaged hair look decent. Now that females rocking low cuts are not only in style in addition to being sexy, these women are able to rock out and grow healthy hair.
Now to the lady that just wanted something different. She’s not doing it to fit in or to look more “black”. Most likely she’s been natural and now she’s “in style”. Also, some women like the versatility of having a perm then going natural to give their hair a short break from the chemicals in a perm.
Having natural hair does not always mean having healthy hair. Yes many use “natural products” however too many products at one time can stunt your hair’s growth. There are plenty of people with perms who have healthy hair.
No matter what are your ingredients to your fro my beautiful sisters, make sure you rock them out to the fullest. I would love to hear the ingredients to your fro.
