I think its a cool thing to embrace your natural texture. The ability for change is always there and of course we often love what we don't have, but what we have is great! Embrace It!!
But as women are becoming more conscious of not just what they put in their bodies, but what they put on their bodies, that trend is beginning to change. While relaxers remain popular, women also are returning to their “roots” and wearing their hair in a variety of different styles that don’t require chemical treatments.
According to Expressions: Eco Salon For All Ethnicities owner Blase (no last name provided) in Little Falls, this shift is mostly occurring among college- and middle-aged women who have become more aware of the harmful chemicals that are used in relaxers.
Women tired of dealing with those harsh chemicals are choosing to let their hair return to its original state so that they can make their hair healthier and embrace its natural beauty.
“We understand that our natural hair is beautiful,” Blase said.
