What It Means To Be Natural?
Let’s get educated here for a sec. The term “natural”, if you look up the dictionary version, means: based on the state of things in nature. The origin of this word is latin; natura means birth, nature, and quality. In layman’s terms, for our use of this word, is that our hair is in its natural state, unaltered, and true to form.
We have to stop this notion that natural isn’t for everyone. It is simply not true. How your hair is naturally is exactly how it’s supposed to be.
No matter what color you are, or ethnicity, if your hair is not chemically treated then you my dear are natural.
Being naturally textured is a journey. Where are you on your journey? Where have you been? Where do you want to go? Let’s start there!
