Doobies, Pineappling and Sisterlocks: What Natural Hair Care Really Means
Eight naturalista bloggers help us break it down
Blogger Tyra Robinson of Indigenous Curls did her Big Chop after years of wearing "waist-long weaves, huge fluffy wigs or braids." She explains that, post-weave, "My hair was a dry, dull mess, so I chopped off all my relaxed ends and hopped in the shower. There I stood, with nothing to hide behind -- no weave, no makeup ... just me."
"It took some time for my family and friends to get used to the change. Learning how to style big hair in a conservative environment can be tricky. My BC got a mixed reception in the corporate world. At work I heard everything from 'I love it!' to 'This style is outside of company standards.'"
"As Coco Chanel said, 'A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life!'"
