When it comes to natural hair, understand it comes in stages. Some women are currently struggling in the transition stage not knowing exactly what to do with their hair and experiencing difficulties in styling due to different textures. There are some women who have decided the transition stage is just too frustrating and they choose to do the big chop resulting in the teeny weeny afro (TWA). You can’t forget about women who have medium length hair that won’t grow past their arm pits and are searching for the best remedies to make their hair grow faster. And finally there are women who have long hair that are learning how to handle it because it’s so long. It is safe to say, you have a customer that fits all of these stages.
Women learn to embrace each stage of their natural hair journey with a sense of pride. They begin to respect themselves more and as a result they boost their self-esteem. Hairstyles women once thought were impossible to do with their hair are now possible through this journey. One of the greatest benefits of having natural hair is the ability to wear it curly or straight.
The desire to wear a different look crosses a woman’s mind quite often after seeing stars like Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o prove that short hair can be just as glamorous as long hair; amazed as singer Alicia Keys rock shaved sides; or even watching singer Janell Monae rock out on stage with a ‘sculpted’ do.
