I rarely pay attention to the natural vs relaxed debate because honestly I find it to be silly and pointless. I love relaxed hiar, I love texlaxed hair, I love natural hair...but above all else I love HEALTHY hair! I seriously debated on if I even wanted to do this post, but no matter how much I tried to let it go the thought just kept nagging at my brain so here I am. This post was actually inspired by an instagram posting by one of my beloved college classmates. I was happily scrollng through instagram and ran across her picture (she's natural and her hair is fabulous!). She'd just gotten her hair straightened and a fierce cut! I read her caption and that's when I saw the words 'Say no to creamy crack'. Now I've heard the phrase before and never really gave it much thought, but for someone reason on this day I really started thinking about the term and what that really means. Eventually I came to the conclusion that while I enjoy my relaxed hair I am in no way addicted. I truly believe that each person has to do what's best for their hair as well as themselves and their lifestyle. For me at this point I choose to remain relax. Does it mean that I'll never go natural...nope, but I could very well remain relaxed for quite a while. I think that the term creamy crack is used because some people associate relaxers with dry, damaged, brittle hair that won't grow. Well ladies I'm hear to tell you that I have seen so many wonderful ladies both in real life as well as in the blogging and YouTube world that are living testimonies that healthy relaxed hair does exist! So I guess I've said all of this to say a hair choice is just that...a choice...not an addiction...not some horrible habit that you must break, but a choice that works for you. After all, healthy hair is the best hair! Happy hair growing :) Until next time!
