Natural Hair Myths That You Are SICK Of Hearing

I asked this question on FB and i received some really interesting answers. Again, I LOVE interacting with you all.

You know what always seems to amaze me? When someone that doesn’t have natural hair sees my hair and they feel a reason to explain to me why they don’t have natural hair either.

I’m just sitting there like



I’m like “YO CHILL!” I don’t need to know why your not natural.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I DON’T CARE! I’m not some natural hair nazi that’s like “DEATH TO THE RELAXER

Honestly, the most that I’m concerned with is healthy hair. I don’t need you to be natural but at least care for it if you do have a relaxer.

With that being said, I honestly think some of these natural hair myths came from people being afraid to go natural so they just say anything that comes to mind. I asked this question on FB and here were some of the responses that i received

Ayana Blessednhappy Williams 1. That it’s nappy. 2. Doesn’t grow 3. That it’s rough/dry

Cassie Price cant comb it smh

Karima Carr I get so tired of people saying “oh thats so easy, you just get up and go.” No baby natural hair is very much high maintenance. It takes patience, time, and a whole lotta prayer!!! LOL

Gigi Brown It’s unprofessional

Gail Russell You have to buy expensive products to manage it/to make it look good.

Barbara Washington Miller 1. I would go natural i had hair like yours! 2. Natural hair isn’t for everybody! 3. My hair won’t do that!

Mel Littlejohn .people with natural hair are lazy and don’t comb their hair… it won’t grow. .

Nicole MsNikki Thompson 1. It’s jus a phase.. 2. black girls can’t grow long hair.. and 3. Natural hair feel hard/dry

I still can’t believe that whole “our hair won’t grow” myth is still around. Do I have to pull out multiple pictures to prove otherwise? I have an entire PIN BOARD dedicated to debunking this myth.

So I ask you, my lovely blog readers, what are some natural hair myths that you are SICK of hearing? Let me know in the comments!

    1. There’s only so many styles you can wear/limited styling options. 2. do you have a texturizer/curl (with looks of disbelief when I say no) 3. you’ve got some good hair, you got Indian in your family; huh, good hair to me is hair that is being taken care of and loved, irregardless to texture /pattern! It irks my nerves when folk’s whom are clearly Black, claim to be every ethnicity other than Black…you don’t hear White folk’s talking about I’ve got Black genes in my family…chile cheese, baby, get your life!!!

    I’m tired of people saying, “you’re so limited to your style,” “natural hair is not sexy,” “you’re trying to make a statement,” “men wont find you attractive.” I hate when I hear these things because natural hair women are just as beautiful as any other woman. We each go natural for different reasons and there is plenty of styles to do with our hair

    1. And I get more holla’ and compliments now then I every did when I was relaxed. BIG MYTH!!!! The fellas like the natural.

  3. Juanita Patrick says:

    “it’s too high maintenance” or “not as manageable” as relaxed hair. if you keep treating your natural texture as if it were relaxed then OF COURSE it’s going to be hard to keep up. duh! lol. The hardest part of going natural was letting go of old regimens. the more I tried to make my hair behave like my relaxed ends, the harder it was to deal with.
    but now that I know better, my routine is so simple that I sometimes think I’m leaving something out. Water, Conditioner, Silcone-free Moisturizer. The end. how “unmanageable” or “high-maintenance” is that?

  4. Same as Shelley’s no. 2. These days I live by the wash n’ go and everyone asks if I am using chemicals. I also get the look of disbelief when I say no. I guess most people in Africa cannot believe our hair can curl. One lady even said to me it’s probably because of all those years of relaxers I had. This is a person who has never seen my hair in any form of relaxer so when I explained my hair has not been relaxed in over 20 years she said, “ok maybe it’s the kind of hair you have, mine will never do that.”

    I hate when ppl say “omg, it’s so soft”….. really?

  6. What i don’t understood is in fact how you are now not actually much more smartly-preferred than you
    might be now. You’re so intelligent. You know therefore significantly in terms
    of this topic, made me in my opinion imagine it from so many numerous
    angles. Its like men and women are not interested unless it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga!
    Your individual stuffs nice. At all times deal with it up!

  7. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my website thus i got here to go back the want?.I’m attempting
    to to find issues to enhance my site!I suppose its ok to use some of your concepts!!

  8. You can find these cabinets in various tones of white. Planning ahead for when the crew arrives can save you headache and hassle for how
    you and your family will eat while the kitchen remodel work is done.
    You can find inspiration from home magazines, but be sure
    not to copy every angle of the design.
