Surprise! She's Natural!

If you have cable and you watch VH1, then you probably know Tiffany Pollard, aka Miss New York who brought the drama to Flavor of Love and launched her own show I Love New York. You may remember her potty mouth and bold attitude, but there's one accessory that is unforgettable-HER WEAVE! She appears to love those full head weaves that don't even leave you questioning its authenticity!

However, underneath all of that weave, you would never guess that she has a full head of healthy, natural hair! Now if only she would just rock her natural and leave the weaves alone....

Natural Hair Doesn't Look Good on Everybody


Huh? Really? If you are confused by the title, please join the club! How on earth can the hair God gave you, "not look good"? After hearing countless people tell me "You look nice with natural hair, but not me." or "Natural hair only looks right on certain people." or "You have a better grade of hair and that's why you can wear your hair in natural styles.", I just want to SCREAM!!! Come on people! The hair God blessed you with is GOOD ENOUGH! "Good hair" is healthy hair and has NOTHING to do with the texture or size of your curls. Whether you are a 2a or a 6Z, you hair can thrive with the right style and proper care. We really need to learn self-acceptance and realize that beauty comes in a variety and is not represented by one look or appeal.

More importantly, we need to learn how to do our own hair! If naturals knew how to take care of their hair and how to achieve a nice style, many of those comments would cease! I am motivated to teach women how to do it themselves. This is my project for the summer especially now that I have a new, Youtube compatible video cam, so look out!

In the meantime, if you are having trouble styling your hair? Check out the GAZILLION other Youtube videos and blogs that show actual tutorials on countless natural hair styles and product usage for natural hair.

Okay, rant over!

I'm back! Stay tuned!
