Do you get upset when not seeing at least one natural present in a series of television or print ads? Can you spot another natural from miles away? Do you walk past a mirror and do a double-take and smile at your own hair? When it comes to family and friends are you the go-to person for natural hair questions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and fit five or more of the descriptions below, you definitely love being natural.

You Know You Love Being Natural When…

  • Either your T-shirt, tote bag, key chain or any other accessory saysyou are.
  • You can’t remember the last time you straightened your hair.
  • You have your own library of natural hair books.
  • You don’t own a flat iron.
  • You belong to more than one natural hair social networking community.
  • You have a natural hair blog.
  • TWA, ACV, EVOO, Co-wash, Poo/Pre-poo, EO and Hand-in-Fro are a part of your vocabulary.
  • You follow or subscribe to other naturals via Fotki, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc.
  • You are aware of the effects of petrolatum, SLS/SLES, parabens, paraffins, and ‘cones’ and you are not a chemist.
  • Instead of avoiding water, you run to it, even using it as a styling aid.

    Solgar I don’t think it should be a questions of being an afrikan woman or a black woman thing. To me it’s a question being my DNA, it’s not a political statement or assertion of any sort. I love my afro textured hair and especially the versatility of it.

    I understand because of years of conditioning some (not all) black women have come to despise their hair. But once we stop looking at our hair as an issue or statement but as any part of our body that need to be cared for properly with care, we’ll all be better off.

    I love being natural sista,especially rocking my kinky hair in a corporate setting is liberating and refreshing, When I flat ironed my hair, I didn’t know what to do with it so under the sink I went, back to kinky hair, hair that I love and know how to style..crazy, but true.
