This is my dedication and appreciation for all the sistahs out there with rebellious hair. Where ever I go no matter what state, what country, use the compliments uplift eachother. I don’t know if anyone understands me, but once you’ve experience the natural lifestyle it’s not like no other. No lacefront, remy weave, or bone straight lifestyle can’t take away the shine that magically seems to glow between each sending happiness that only the rebellious can understand. I have recently noticed the natural community and how on such a forbiden and touchy subject women of all textures come together through internet, on the streets, or work enviornments and uplift eachother when society only wants to bring us down. This is me appreciating those that give compliments, advice, or just slient gestures to those who choose to wear their hair how it has been naturally rooted from the scalp. Even if it’s just one day, one hour, or a couple months, just remember we are born natural and I will continue to live this natural life 🙂
I know I’m not the only one anxiously awaiting the premiere of the “Good Hair” documentary done by Chris Rock that was the award winner for the Sundance Film Festival of 2009. The African-American culture has and will always have a struggle with HAIR. No matter if its long, straight, nappy, or curly, there will alway be the question as to “What is Good hair?”
I do NOT want to simply answer this question for you or rant on about my opinions yet because I realize that I have done plenty of blogs, outbursts, and discussion on “Good Hair” but I want to see what angles Chris Rock is going to take on this situation. I hope that he doesnt just gear to the creamy-crack users but always the black women with natural hair as well. How do women with natural hair feel about “good hair”? How is it defined to them? and why did they choose to stay/ or go natural?
I came across a youtuber by the name of leobody05 and she gives her opinion, which I have mad respect for,from already viewing the movie:
Now’s a good time to give my definition of Good Hair:Good Hair is hair that is healthy and well taken care of. Typically good hair is categorized as hair free of damage and split-ins. It is not hair that is just long and straight, because most of the time, a persons hair that is super long is not HEALTHY i.e split ins, and uneven.
