In the past month, two of my close girlfriends have big chopped and crossed over to the natural side. They’re having a ball with their teeny weeny afros and are in love with their hair. They told me that seeing my natural hair, as well as other women rocking natural styles, was a big motivation for them. And just this weekend I lost count on all the women rocking afros, sisterlocks, and locks. It was like a natural hair bomb went off! LOL. So the trend makes me wonder:

  • Is this natural hair trend just a fad?
  • Do any of you think you’ll ever go back to relaxers?
  • Is natural hair just a style you’re rocking now- or is your natural hair here to stay?

Sound off!
