Okay, I’m not a natural hair nazi. While I do choose to wear my hair in its natural state and encourage other women to embrace their natural curls/kinks/coils, I do also understand that some woman like relaxers and weaves and that’s never going to change. Honestly, I don’t care that much about what other people do to their own hair. I do, however, care about the negative and shameful mentality that African-Americans and women in particular perpetuate in regards to “black hair”. This leads me to the point of this post and this question….
Why are people still burning their scalps in the name of straight hair holiness??????!!!!!
While I do understand that the result in this video does not represent all circumstances, I do know (from years of pre-natural hair experience) that, MOST of the time, when we get our hair relaxed, it does burn.
So another question I ask is: Does the end justify the means?
See, this is why I went natural. I just couldn’t do it any longer. Poor child.
See where I found this video and the original post over at Clutch Magazine.
