What’s Causing The Return Of The Natural Hair Movement?
Recently I have been noticing on Facebook, here at work and around the community, sisters are rocking natural hairstyles.
Beyonce’s sister Solange has become somewhat of a spokeswoman for the natural look.
In fact, just the other day, I asked a lady why she thought that more and more women were returning to the natural look, and she said that sisters are realizing that the chemicals are damaging their hair, and they are waking up and becoming conscious of the Queens that they are and have been since the beginning of time!
I found that to be quite interesting, given the fact that we have been presenting the Know Thyself Campaign to the community for almost three years now, and for her to make a statement about "becoming conscious of the Queens that they are and have been since the beginning of time" was quite profound.
But what’s even deeper is the power of the spiraling, universal life force, within you! According to Rych McCain, author of the book Black African Hair:
As a Black African, your natural, woolly, kinky hair “spirals” out of your scalp to form a coil, or as some of you refer to it, a “nap!” Now get ready for this! The scientific principle and force that causes your wooly hair to spiral out of your scalp is the same principle and force that causes the spiraling of the planets and galaxies throughout the entire universe!
