Having natural hair is nothing new. We have always had natural hair, but we decided to take on eurocentric ways and been brainwashed that the hair that naturally grows out from our scalp is less appealing and attractive to western views. Today, women of Afro decedents are going back to there roots as part of their heritage to embrace their natural hair.
Going natural for most means a lifestyle change and not simply a short-term hairdo.
