Embracing Ladies w/ Healthy Natural & Relaxed Hair!

Hey ladies,

I went on a Twitter rant a few weeks ago. Actually, it was more like a mini-rant. If you follow me on there, then you already know about it. In case you missed it here's the jest of what happened....It started off with my 'fed up' tweet....


Then other ladies chimed in.....

The rant was about naturals constantly bashing women with relaxed hair. I've been noticing that there are a lot of naturals that put down & condemn ladies with relaxed hair. I embrace my natural hair, but I don't have to put down relaxed hair to embrace it. It's annoying & ridiculous. I really don't understand it seeing as the goal is to have healthy hair whether it's relaxed or natural. At least that's my goal.... How you choose to wear your hair is a personal preference. I feel like I'm beating a dead horse so I'll just stop there...

 So anyway, I've turned this experience into a positive one for HairGurl. Now....I've posted photos of ladies with natural & relaxed hair since I started this blog, but now I've taken it to another level. As you ladies can see, for the last few weeks I've been doing hair interviews with inspirational ladies that have healthy, beautiful relaxed & natural hair. I'm natural, but please don't mistake HairGurl for a natural hair blog. If you only want to see articles on natural hair, HairGurl is not the place for you. There are plenty of great natural hair blogs on the web. HairGurl is a healthy hair blog. I try to stress this as much as I can. I love healthy hair & ya'll know this. If you don't check out My Stand on Relaxed & Natural Hair which I originally posted about a year & a half ago. That should clear up any confusion. Ladies, lets embrace healthy hair, ok? :-) That's what I'm about. Anybody else on #teamhealthyhair? With that being said, do I have any ladies with fabulous, healthy, gorgeous, stunning relaxed or natural hair??
 
Send me an email at thehairgurl@yahoo.com for a chance to be featured as a Healthy Hair Icon!

P.S. Recently, my sis told me she really enjoys the Healthy Hair Icons. It really put a smile on my face. :-) I was on the phone cheesing so hard my ears were wet. What do you think of the Healthy Hair Icons?? I would love some feedback!


Make sure you are following me on Twitter & Facebook for more of my ramblings about hair and anything else I want to talk about. :-)

I must say: The healthy hair icon posts are a treat! I really look forward to seeing who is deemed a 'healthy hair icon' (because everybody can't be one!) and the different variations of how they keep their hair healthy.

This is coming from a guy...and your husband...LOL
