There is a lot of misinformation that prevents some people from accepting their hair as it is given to them by God. They choose to relax or texturize their hair because some of these natural hair misconceptions are still widely believed and accepted.
We would be dissecting these myths in this post. Some of them are;
NATURAL HAIR IS DIFFICULT/EXPENSIVE TO MANAGE:
You cannot use the same tools, accessories or products for natural and relaxed/straightened hair and expect to get the same results. This, perhaps, is how the difficult/expensive idea came about. You have to focus on learning new techniques that work with your natural texture. Your fingers, a wide-tooth comb, natural products etc are all good ways to treat natural hair. Find a regimen that works best for you and stick to it.
NATURAL HAIR IS TOUGH AND CAN BE MANIPULATED:
In reality, natural hair is fragile and needs to be treated with the gentlest of care in order for it to flourish. Tone down the manipulation. Constant manipulation can be too much for some hair types, natural or not.
NATURAL HAIR IS HARD TO GROW:
Natural state has a tendency to shrink up, preventing you from seeing its real length, leading to the popular belief that it doesn’t grow long. Note that hair growth capacity differs in individuals due to varied genetics, but with proper care, you can grow your hair as long as it is destined to be.
