Presenting the first reader-submitted Naturalista feature! Please meet the fabulous Kerdisha!
There is one major problem with the natural hair movement. Whether it was an unwitting happenstance or a conscious effort by some, the natural hair movement has created a monolithic view of what it means to be natural.
Being featured is probably the natural hair blogger’s highest form of flattery! So color me tickled, when Neno Natural decided to feature me. 😀 Neno Natural is no ordinary blog. Much like The Natural Hair Blog Directory, Neno Natural is a natural hair resource. Its Queen of Kinks, Curls, & Coils features page is a combination of features and a directory of bloggers by hair type AND location! Check out my feature here!
Do the rules of natural hair care confuse you? One minute, you’re reading “no shampoo! low manipulation!” and the next you’ve found a blog featuring a naturalista who does twistouts daily, shampoos weekly, and has hair down to her butt! We all know the cardinal rule: No heat. Welp. Now even that’s changed.
I joined Blogging University 101 and Writing 101 this month and the first challenge in Writing 101 is a stream of consciousness exercise. As I’m sitting here letting my thoughts flow regarding what I want to write about for this challenge, I remembered how someone mentioned to me once that it was a complete waste of time to transition to natural hair—one should just big chop.
I have been invited to speak as a panelist at Delaware’s 3rd Annual Naturally Redefined Natural Hair & Holistic Health Expo on September 20, 2014 at Clayton Hall Conference Center in Newark, DE. I, along with other bloggers/vloggers will be part of a panel discussing natural hair care.
Here’s another real talk discussion coming at you. Lately, it seems there has been some discontent in the natural hair community. I discussed one of the issues in my texture discrimination post. But the newest wave of discontent seems to be fueled by a CurlyNikki post that featured a Caucasian woman with curly hair.
