I hear it often when I go out. My white friends are curious as to how I grew my natural hair so long. They initially think my hair is weave but once I show them it isn’t they then ask me a host of questions. Like, how is it that my hair is long when most black women they see have very short or fake hair?
Now, many of my white friends have good intentions so no shade here. It’s just that They believe that because of the few black women they see have short or fake hair that African/Black hair don’t grow.
I then explain to them that “hair growth” is completely different from “length retention”. Some blacks use products and techniques that don’t work for their hair and break it off at a faster rate than it grows. If black hair didn’t grow they would never have to do touch ups on color or perms. I mean think about it, how come your nails are short? Is it because they don’t grow? No, it’s because they break. Once blacks receive the proper education on how to care for their hair and start using the correct products, their hair flourishes. As prime example with this black beauty.
It’s time for this week’s spotlight on those beauty guru’s who are shinning out there and today I want to show some love to a sister who locks are worth noticing and to the stylist who silk pressed it. The black beauty’s hair is to her bum. Her hair long, beautiful and healthy. She clearly has been taking care of it. Press play on the video above to see for yourself.
