I am LOVING this mini-documentary by New York Times writer Zina Saro-Wiwa about the natural hair community. In addition to documenting a bit of her own transition, she describes common themes of the natural hair movement; community, health and transitioning for personal (not political!) reasons. I thought this was important since so many people still think that naturals are trying to be “political” (o_0) when most of us were really just tired of the expense and inconvenience of relaxed hair, and believing that our own textures weren’t good enough to ‘show’ publicly.
What do you think of the video ladies? Is it an accurate snapshot of the natural hair community? (Video below.)
