There are many “myths” & misconceptions about going natural that people make up to avoid actually doing it. Sometimes it’s a person with a relaxer that’s miseducated on natural hair & sometimes it’s a stylist who’s too lazy to learn the facts and pass them on to their clients. I always encourage my clients to find out the facts on natural hair instead of listening to old myths. I also make sure as a stylist that I give them the facts on natural hair, even if it sometimes means they chose not to get a service done. Yes, I get paid for my services, BUT, my priority is always the health of a person’s hair. Even if they don’t use me in the long run as their stylist. I always want to make sure people have the facts on natural hair no matter who their stylist is.
Below is a great article I found on natural hair misconceptions where the author gives out some fact over fiction. Enjoy ! Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Peace 🙂
