Relaxer Versus Natural Hair: A Verdict on Ethnic Pride?

Image found at: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-BfysM1hhZg4/TejvXVGHqYI/AAAAAAAAAqE/M7HFpPnpXJQ/s1600/307841.jpg

Today’s post is short, sweet (I hope) and to the point:

If you put chemicals (e.g., relaxer, Brazilian blowout, etc.) in your hair you are denying your ethnicity.

You should be able to wear your hair however you like and not have your ethnic identification be questioned.

What is your response to those two statements? How do the statements make you feel? Have you ever had someone express these sentiments to you? Please comment and tell me a little bit about yourself. J

    I have to agree with Topie. (:I wear my hair uncurl because it gives a lot less work. When I have my hair frizz, there are times that I p I lack the strength to get caught. : (But unfortunately I see that my hair needs a break and because of this I will go to have it natural. 🙂 I'm pretty contentente so why will start to grow more healthy.(Sorry my bad English but I used the google translator)Kisses from Potugal * (:
