Warning this is a natural hair rant…
I am so tired of the natural hair rules which I know is ironic considering the name of this site. But honestly when I came up with the name, Natural Hair Rules in 2008 it was deeper than Webster’s definition [rules- a prescribed guide for conduct or action]. It stemmed from the fact that there were few outlets of natural hair inspiration and empowerment.
Even though the natural hair movement was brewing many of us still had no idea what we were doing.
But let me speak for myself. I’m still learning my hair and how to care for her properly after 6 years. I still have days where I stand in the mirror and say “I’ll cut you”. That makes her act right every time. No lie. She be trying to act a fool.
After meeting, interviewing and/or being styled by world renowned hair care professionals like Dickey of author & creator of Hair Rules, Lisa Price of Carol’s Daughter, Felicia Leatherwood of Loving Your Natural Hair, Dr. Kari Williams of Mahogany Hair Revolution & Trichology Clinic and Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, author of The Science of Black Hair I can say I have learned from the best. But it doesn’t end there. I’m studying and researching the best haircare practices and techniques for our hair every day. Natural Hair Rules.com is not the typical hair blog were you will find questionable and contradicting information. No. You will find expert advice. *steps off soap box*
In making your own Natural Hair Rules do what works for your hair, lifestyle, and your overall hair goals. Not everyone wants long hair. Some people like to blow their hair out. Shoot, I do. I’m not a fan of making a salad in my hair. (But if you are here are 5 Hair Treatments You Have In Your Kitchen) And that’s ok. Don’t big chop or do (Read Here for Tips on How To Transition Long Term Without Breakage). Do you, boo boo!!! DO YOU!!!
What are your natural hair rules???
