It seems the natural hair movement that has taken the US by storm is finally trickling down to the UK. People with Voices a UK Journalism training scheme for under-represented groups has launched a campaign to celebrate natural afro-texture hair.
They did this in response to the growing number of women in the UK who are scrapping the relaxers and straighteners and embracing their “naptural” hair. Each day People with Voices will feature articles, book reviews and personal stories of women who have gone the natural route.
Women decide to go natural for a number of different reasons, some of them political some of them just personal. Some women can’t bear the sight of their own hair in it’s natural state and some who are natural can’t bear the sight of their hair straightened. Recently a friend of mine who straightened her hair for the first time in almost two years took one look at herslef in the mirror and immediately washed it out.
So FAB asks what is it that made you go natural? Or is it something that you wouldn’t ever do?
