I am ALL for the "natural hair movement" or whatever we are calling it these days. lol. Why aren't we as black women, focusing or using the natural hair platform to discuss topics such as prevention and health. We are the group of women that share a common bond due to the uniqueness of our hair. We are also the women that share a bond of being at high
risk for obesity, diabetes, heart disease, breast cancer and AIDS/HIV. If we take better of care of the "temple" in entirety, the hair growth will come (and a bonus: we will be better educated). I love that we as black women are accepting ourselves just as we are but we've got to start taking better care of ourselves too!! A gorgeous head of hair, with type II diabetes... makes no sense to me. If we can put the effort in our hair, why not our bodies and minds. Ok, I'm done. lol.
