Curl discrimination… let’s just be honest.¬†

             As silly as this may sound, in the natural community this is a such thing. It’s extremely sad and can be very  discouraging for someone who may be new to their journey and afraid to have the less desirable “curl pattern”.

  Having that super loose curly and wavy natural hair is heavily favored. As big as the natural hair movement is I am seeing more and more loose curls representing what natural hair is. Don’t get me wrong it’s beautiful but it looks nothing like mine. It’s not the only kind of natural hair that exists. It’s a bit disheartening. 

  Natural hair pages that I’ve followed for years also have swayed more to the curlier, looser curl as well. I’ve seen girls claiming to be 4b but are closer to 3c. I’m not sure why this is done but thick is not the same as kinky. It’s false representation. I’ve noticed that you either have to have long hair or a taper cut to get recognition if your hair is a bit kinkier.

I’ve also felt this way and even spoke about it when ppl were dragging poor little Blue Ivy yet praising Knorth’s natural hair. It was sad but a true representation of how ppl felt about natural hair. It was a slap in the face that as beautiful as natural hair is a certain type is often deemed “ugly” and is definitely less desirable.
