Change The Way You THINK About Your Black Hair… [DEEP]
This Nigerian documentary titled "The Truth About the Use of Relaxers in Nigeria" by Seun, who is a Black hair YouTuber who has spent most of her career teaching how to have and maintain relaxed hair.
It's very ironic and encouraging seeing this sista learn WHO SHE IS and that she should not feel embarrassed AT ALL to embrace it. We've been through TOO MUCH to still fall for the oke-doke.
She captures the natural hair movement (even though Nigerians don't use the term) that is going on in Africa and what it means to the women there.
The beautiful thing about the natural hair movement is that it has brought so many business opportunities to Africans.
Check out the documentary below and let me know what you think by email! It might just change the way many of us THINK about our hair…
The Truth About Use of Relaxers in Nigeria
Brainwashing: Systemic and Still Happening
What really blew my mind was the fact that many Nigerian schools have hair policies that require all of their girls to shave their hair or require that IF BRAID STYLES ARE WORN they have absolutely no attachments added.
It's weird to see how Africa had been so brainwashed but it's so dope to see how many Africans are loving and appreciating who they are as a gorgeous people.
All of a sudden, Black people are start to notice how natural hair actually makes you look more beautiful.
It makes YOU look like YOU, instead of a knockoff version of someone else.
And if no one else has noticed, I'll say it right here.
Having a fro isn't a bad thing, being dark-skinned isn't a bad thing.
MORE THAN THAT!
Having a fro, kinky hair or coily hair is a very good thing, having dark skin is heavenly.
And at long last, WE are not being brainwashed out of appreciating Black beauty.
