Now with that said it does not mean I don’t like straight hair styles. So please do provide information on how to safely straighten natural hair in order to have more styling choices. Thank you

Like others have mentioned there are so many sites that cater to straight hair/ hair straightening of black hair. We ought to know by now how to make our hair straight, that has been the “only way” to do our hair for years now. Our hair is the only hair in the world that doesn’t mimic anothers so lets continue to embrace it and love it. Its God given.

Peace Ladies

I love tons and tons of hair. My motto is you can never have enough hair. If I’m interested in weaves, there are plenty of blogs and magazines I can buy. I would never have a relaxer ever again. Haven’t had one in 3-4 years. The only reason some of these companies want to give you items because they see the $$$$$ in the community of curly/natural hair. I see so many asian beauty stores going out of business because more black women are wearing their hair natural. There’s black products and various companies coming out because of this movement. Some people just want a part of it. Please don’t let them in. The reason I love all these natural blogs is I’m learning to love my hair. This wouldn’t have happen if it wasn’t for blogs and you tubes. I just wish you all were around in the 70’s. I would love to see more afro hair to use for protective styles, afro wigs (that don’t look like clowns)

Leave it NATURAL (NON-STRAIGHTENED). Stick to what works. If they want styling or hair questions there are other forums/blogs for that.

Your header obviously indicates that your site is so more than “hair-centered” (Beauty|Hair|Culture|Life)…and for those of us that might even consider alternative style options that don’t involve chemical for our hair, this would be a great thing–there would be no need to search out “all those other sites” as the info would be here on a site we already love to read!

Thanks for putting the question out there!

Let them who are the experts teach about straightening black hair. You can’t be everything to all people, dear AFRObella!!

Sometimes when we try to do it all, it comes across in a watered down way. Jill of all trades, master of none. Don’t do it or you wouldn’t be true to you. We know that you have a heart of gold, and that’s why you are loved.

I talk about the politics of black hair and beauty, and link to you and others who talk about the practicality of black beauty and hair. I tried doing the practicality before, but became bored because my heart is in the POLITICS of it!

Tons of mags, Its the natural haircare arena thats lacking smdh. Are woman really complaining About this? Seriously?

So then what are naturals suppose to do then? Its not about judging or excluding. its you exspressing what your passion is. You cant save the world. Im sure those women can find what they need else where, i know it sounds brass but its real. Dont ever compromise your beliefs. Everybody doesnt wanna drink that cool aid and buy into that look so they come to websites like yours or other natural hair blogs
Peace

I think like others have said if I’m not interested in a particular article, I’ll just read another post. I like the idea of diversification! Do whatever you’re comfortable with…I’ll still support ya Bella!

As others indicated, I’ll simply ignore those posts. I do love your natural, organic style though – it’s what really makes your blog stand out from the other natural hair blogs and it is why it’s one of my regular reads. peace to you whatever you choose.

There are plenty of references out there for that type of hair. We don’t need yet another one.
