Where Have All The Naturals Gone?
The other day i was thinking...like i usually do.
About women (I do that often, sue me!)....and the fact that most of them that i know personally-i rarely get to see their natural hair.
I remember a while back, having this same conversation with one of my female friends, lets call her choco...
Bratti: So Choco tell me, what's up with women not wearing their hair natural anymore these days?
Choco: Smiling, she gave me that 'Oh no you didnt just go there' kinda look.
Well, you see for me it's more comfortable and easier to....
Choco: Yes i mean, it takes a lot of stress off taking care of the natural hair, which oftentimes is unruly and you need to keep retouching it and stuff.
Bratti: I take out my notepad and jot down while nodding,lol. Nah i'm just kidding.
I see, so you've never gone natural before?
Choco: Oh i have, it's been ages though. All i do now is i braid, weave and add extensions....
By this time my mind had already drifted off...
What triggered off these thoughts of mine again today?
An old article that i came across that made a whole load of sense, aptly titled: Where have all the naturals gone by Beatrice Hogg
So i ask, where have all the naturals gone?
