So natural hair has been getting more and more attention than usual recently. The increase of black women opting for their natural non-processed hair has sky rocketed and blogs, news sites, magazines and TV are jumping on board reporting the not so new phenomenon. In growing numbers, natural hair is being embraced by more black women despite their lack of experience with natural hair, as relaxed hair became the usual route in the black community.
With the rise of curls, kinks and coils, the expected curiosity and admiration from others (mainly white women) brings on a new battle. The line between admiring “exotic” hair from afar and actually wanting to touch it can come off demeaning and down right disrespectful. Everyone wants what they can’t have and that’s okay, but basically petting my hair is unacceptable. CNN.com ran an interesting story on America’s new age fascination with natural hair. Check it.
