Here at my blog, I do my best to promote black women learning to embrace their natural black beauty. I promote the gorgeousness of OUR African beauty! That means our natural skin tones–including dark skin. That means our natural coily, kinky, nappy–whatever you want to call it–the NATURAL beauty of our hair in all the unlimited curl and kink patterns.
It is so sad, so very sad that some of us are utterly unable to see just how God has gifted us with this completely unique, soft fluffy cloud of gorgeous kinks and curls and spirals, and tight zig zags, and curly kinks, and nappy twists that is OUR beautiful God gifted hair!!! It’s so sad that some of us can’t understand preciousness that is this beauty of ours!
I recently received an email of a terrible traumatic experience of one of our own beautiful sisters, Isabella. She’s originally from Holland and was lured to America to seek her fame and fortune as a model. She’s got the look for it, being a beautiful black young woman, but she decided one terrible, fateful day to get a perm in a beauty salon in Chicago, not knowing the devastation that was waiting…
Thanks be to the Lord for the blogosphere! I praise God for this space all the time, because we as black women have been able to reconnect with who and what we truly are in terms of OUR natural beauty! We’ve been able to learn about our own hair from each other and those blogger pioneers who experimented on themselves, relearning how to care for their natural hair. Then they blessed us and created the blogs where we are able to go and learn how to care for our own hair. I thank them all because they have helped us to reconnect to the truth of ourselves, which we have been so alienated from for so very long.
I also am greatly encouraged when my 29 year old son and his naturally beautiful fiance went to a club recently and he was able to come back and tell me that he saw at least 10 sisters rocking their beautiful natural hair! Young black natural women are encouraging others to give up the “creamy crack”! Hallelujah! This is the quiet revolution that only we are talking about. Thank God, that we are slowly but surely turning away from the madness! NO ONE on earth should have to endure such a devastation as what Isabella has endured!
