I often see the debate of “you’re not really rocking your natural hair if you have color in it”. Well… we all know most people when referring to their natural hair mean they don’t have a sodium hydroxide relaxer which causes a “chemical change” aka permanent change. Permanent color is also a “chemical change” aka permanent change. Both chemicals alter the bonds of the hair shaft which means that technically they are not completely natural if they have either of these chemicals present on their hair. However I don’t have a problem with a client/ person saying they’re natural but have permanent hair color because not all color visibly changes the texture of the hair shaft or the curl pattern. Which is of course what people mean when they say they’re natural. Tricky, Tricky, Tricky. Furthermore if you sit in my chair and you don’t have a relaxer, I expect you to say your natural. I hope this helps the natural haired bullies out there. Why so quick to prove people wrong when discussing their own hair? RELAX!
