NATURAL CURLS FOR BLACK HAIR.

Hmmm this is a tough topic but here we go.Recently i read a write-up from a black woman who was condemning other black women for wearing weaves instead of their natural hair.A lot of people seemed to have different opinions about it.I for one,agreed with her in some areas.She seemed to think or imply that it was a low self esteem issue.I am a black African woman,i can tell you first hand that it is very difficult to wear my hair natural.


Last year,while i was pregnant,i decided to cut it all off and let it grow back without any chemicals/relaxer in it and the journey, so far, hasn't been easy.I haven't mastered the art of keeping it soft and easy to comb,so i'm still stuck with my weaves .I plan to continue growing it out, natural, until it's long enough for me to get curls in them and maybe then,i can say goodbye to weaves.
I don't think black women with weaves have low self esteem,i just think that most of them,like me,have problems styling and maintaining their hair.
With that said,loads of women and even men  wear their hair natural and i have some pics of them.Maybe they may inspire someone else to go natural:)

Isn't SHe Lovely?




Andre Pejic born of a Croatian father and a Serbian mother has emerged as a poster boy for Fashion androgyny.He models for designers for both male and female clothings.In 2011,Pejic walked both the men's and female's shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men's shows for Marc Jacob and in the same year,his magazine cover for the New york based magazine Dossier Journal in which Pejic is pictured taking off a white shirt with  long blond locks in curlers was ruled too risque by US bookstores Barnes and Nobels and Borders,which covered the image with an opaque sleeve.Concerns were expressed that customers would mistake Pejic for a topless woman.

My own is,is there a scarcity of female models that they have to start using a man to model as a woman?Hian. What are your thoughts?
