For anyone who doesn’t know, natural hair is defined by Urban Dictionary as “…When your hair is in the state that you were born with. Hair that is not permed, dyed, relaxed, or chemically altered.” Many ways they go about it involves the methods previously mentioned and also wearing wigs, weaves, and any other alterations of the hair. As someone who has curly hair and has been asked “are you really gonna go out with your hair like that?” many times, the natural hair movement has been a godsend. The curly hair community is a magical place that has so many tips, tricks, and products that help enhance the already beautiful texture of natural hair. It’s a place to uplift women and their hair.
