    I got a Afro, which would be considered by many ignorant people as 'Bad hair'. But I dont care, girls like my hair and want to touch it so its all good yo

    Man I love Afros!

    I would throw my self in the ranks of the enemies untill I would be certain that I would not come out alive. And here I am dying on my bed. So may the eyes of the cowards never see sleep!

    I love our hair too.The natural hair movement is more popular than ever. So much so, they now sell some hair relaxers for 2 dollars because no one is buying them , while you're seeing more and more products for natural hair. It's an up and coming market that black women should be taking advantage of themselves instead of letting someone else come in and use it to make a profit.

    I see more women of Sub-Saharan African descent rocking their natural hair than not.
    All around me, I see black women with afros, puffs, braids, twists, etc (including myself).

    Which is really different from when I was growing up. Growing up, I had relaxed her and so did almost every black girl around me. Our mothers would relax our hair as young as 2 or 3 years old. So, we grew up not knowing what our natural hair looks like nor how to take care of it; and we were pressured into wearing it straight. It's very sad, but I'm glad many black women know better now.

    Unfortunately, many people still have misconceptions about our hair (both non-black and black people). A common one is that the hair can't grow.
    That black women can't grow long hair. They don't realize the hair shrinks, even up to 75% in length. Some people hate the shrinkage, other's love it. It just makes the hair more versatile. Want it short and curly or in an afro? Just add water. Want it straight and long? Just flat iron it.












    Anyways, more pictures of some lovely naturals:

    Another thing I'm proud to see are black dolls and Barbies with afro-textured hair! Growing up, all the black dolls had straight or very loose curly hair, and that's still how it is in many mainstream dolls. I remember the only black dolls I had that weren't like that was Melanie Brown "Scary Spice" from the Spice Girls and Brandy Norwood (whose doll had braids):



    Hopefully, more dolls like this can become mainstream:




















    And if this isn't one of the most beautiful dolls you've ever seen...:

    Those dolls are lovely. I want to get my daughters some dolls of different ethnicities. It occurred to me that they only have white dolls and that seems wrong.

    I had dolls in every shade/race growing up including Arab (if you count Jasmine and Aladdin); Native American (if you count Pocahontas); and Romani (if you count Esmeralda) I didn't think much of it as a kid, but I'm glad they weren't all black nor all white. And a variety of brands too, tho my favorites were Bratz and MyScene.
