Natural Hair Men Need Love Too

The natural hair community one would assume is a female only environment. Since we’ve been oppressed for years to cream it so that it is straight like the Europeans hair instead of nappy, curly, or kinky.

As we have broken through those psychological and physical barriers we have embraced ourselves as black people and loved ourselves and hair for who and what it is. But wouldn’t one assume that men are in that community too? Don’t they possess the same hair like us? Their hair makeup is just like ours with different curl patterns and mind boggling shrinkages issues. 

Men have been known to trim their hair all their lives because growing their hair is for ‘females’. However, many men of today are growing their hair and beard with no apologies. They too have been oppressed to keep their hair one way which is with no hair at all to look professional for school or the workplace.

Is their natural not appropriate for these places? They too face the similar issues like us females. Males who grow their natural hair aren’t getting as much love as the females. But they should because they are as much a part of the natural hair community us.

I am 20-year-old freelance natural hair blogger who hails from the island of Jamaica. I have been natural all my life, however, I started caring for my natural hair in May 2013 after being introduced to Nina Pruitt's youtube channel. After that, I subscribed to a lot of natural hair blogs, watched youtube videos and was addicted to Pinterest natural hair boards so I could learn more about my hair. I have always had long hair when I was younger however when I entered high school the state of my hair changed when other people started caring for it. I started applying what I learned from the videos, posts, and pictures about hair growth, regimens, product usage, moisture and length retention to my hair. And, I was able to grow my hair from armpit length to bra length. 99.9% of the time my hair is in a twist out or a braid out because that's the style I love the most. I became a freelance natural hair blogger when I wanted to earn money and considered what I would be good at. I knew I could write natural hair articles since I love natural hair, watch videos regularly, give hair advice to other girls, and care, nourish and embrace my mane. I hope you enjoy my guest posts as much as I enjoyed writing it. Finally, remember that you are beautiful with your natural hair!
