An increasing number of African women, including film and music stars have embraced the natural hair status. From curly to kinky hair, these women rock their hair in a way that will want you to go natural.

Nigerian women rock their natural hair for different reasons. Some say it is in vogue, some say it is healthier while some are afraid of the effect of dangerous chemicals in some relaxers.

The ladies ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke to on this explained why they prefer rocking natural hair….

 

The World Loves It

It amazed me the other day seeing a new trend in Asia where they are buying black hair wigs and wearing their hair in the natural styles our women do. Other people are looking up to and admiring your beauty, black women, it is time for you to embrace it and do the same.

 

Control Our Economy

No one knows how to control, maintain and care for the natural hair of beautiful women like us. If we make this movement go viral and start to create the products, services and businesses to serve our community, we can make a dramatic difference in our communities.

 

More Accepted In Workplace

I’m not going to lie and say that every workplace is ready for  women with natural hair, but the number is growing. With many television personalities, analysts and news casters moving to natural hair, the corporate world is waking up to the needs and desires of black women with natural hair.

 

Inspire The Next Generation

You rocking your natural hair will inspire the next generation, who are watching every move you make, to do the same. Our daughters, sisters and friends will see a strong black woman wearing her natural hair and want to do the same.

Why do you rock your natural hair?

I rock my natural hair because I have soft texture of hair and while I was applying relaxer, it use to break a lot and all my front hair vanished, I was always wearing weavon to cover the front damage. Like two years back, I decided to stop using relaxer and I realised that the front hair started growing.

Would you say it is expensive maintaining natural hair?

It’s not expensive for me because naturally I have a soft texture of hair.

Do you feel more beautiful with your natural hair and why?

Yes of course. I can still do the regular braids and weaving as I used to when I had a relaxed hair.

Why do you rock your natural hair?

I rock my natural hair because it makes me feel great. I dont have to relax my hair every three months which damaged my hair, then I took the bold step of cutting my hair and started the natural way. Also, I am free from the stress and trauma of getting a particular hair off my head and thinking of another style to do.

Yes, I do because there are so many ways I rock my natural hair and I feel awesome.
