Atlanta celebrity hair stylist Derek J. recently made THE stupidest comment on the new BRAVO network show “Fashion Queens”. Not only did he admit that he “Is not a fan of the Natural Hair Movement” he went on to say “Natural Hair is not for everyone”.
Huh? Lemmie get this straight, Natural hair (as in the hair that you were born with) may not be for you? * insert black stare *
But chemicals used to straighten hair, which have been linked to cancer, fibroid tumors and more just work great for everyone?….. *insert nodding bobblehead *
Oh, and weave, which is essentially SOMEONE ELSE”S natural hair sewn or glued to YOUR head is also universal? GTFOH
Thank Goodness people are free to do what they want to with their hair. Who REALLY cares? But stupidity like this just beckons me to my soap box. I’ve been hearing people make statements like this for the entire 20 years I’ve been natural. EVERY time I hear it its like finger nails scraping a chalkboard. How do you react when you hear people say “Natural Hair is not for Everyone” ? Please comment below.
