Thoughts On Relaxers and Weaves As A Natural


A viewer posted a question on one of my YouTube videos asking how I felt about weaves and relaxers.

I realized that my views have changed a lot since I first stopped relaxing years ago, so I decided to record this short video sharing my thoughts.



How do you feel about weaves and relaxers as a natural? Has your stance changed at all?

Let’s talk natural hair.

    I rocked a TWA after a 2 month transition. This is not my 1st BC, but it is my last. In the past I have always gone back to the creamy crack. I am more confident now and am loving my natural hair, it has endless possibilities. So yes my views has changed dramatically. Perms can really damage your hair. As far as weaves are concerned they can both help and damage your hair depending on the technique used.

    • Let me be clear…I agree that relaxers and weaves alike can be damaging. That hasn’t changed. What’s changed is the way I see those who choose to use them and my attitude towards them.

      I don’t preach or condemn anymore. I’m not out to save the world. I’m just here for those seeking help.

      I’m glad you found the confidence and courage to rock your natural hair. Some of us never make it to that point. Feels good, doesn’t it?

    Good to see you’re still holding. Love the logo. I’m still an advocate for Since I Threw the Comb Away by the Twinkle Brothers. Stay strong.
