10 Uplifting Quotes About Natural Hair
Remember when getting a relaxer on your hair as a young girl was like a rite of passage? Some young women were so severely brainwashed into believing that they weren’t fit to be seen until their hair was de-kinked and uncoiled, that they eagerly awaited the time when they would be old enough to be allowed to have a relaxer done.
Once the relaxer was done, we would soon find out that it still wasn’t enough to meet the so-called “beauty standards” of some. Then came the extensions and the weaves; but oh, what a glorious time to be a black woman, because now, finally, we are learning to love ourselves, right down to the strands of our hair.
Now, we couldn’t care less who disapproves of what our hair looks like in its natural state.
Here are 10 meaningful quotes that celebrate the black woman’s natural hair.
