And the backlash that she received from fans was crazy. One person even told her that she looked like "a shocked slave."
Here's an excerpt from her interview with the site backstage at the Global Fusion Festival in Philadelphia:
“I posted the picture of my hair and people were like ‘Omg you look like a shocked slave!’ I didn’t get one comment from a white person about my hair. All of them came from the sisters that had these bullsh** helmut weaves looking like a fake a** Nicki Minaj. They don’t know who they are. And the people they’re looking to for guidance don’t know who they are either, which sucks.”
I think that she's rocking that 'fro. Her hair looks healthy and beautiful and besides who cares what she does with it....afterall it's HER HAIR! I mean, are we so caught up in the media's sense of 'beauty' that we can't appreciate what other people find beautiful? I hate how easy society is to dismiss something that they may not understand.
I know I have followers with natural hair, dreads, twa (teeny, weeny afros), curls, weave, braids, relaxed hair and more. What are your thoughts about her hair? (I'm still trying to figure out the 'shocked slave' rationale but I doubt I will ever figure it out!)
I would love to hear what you think about not only her picture, but your thoughts on natural hair....if you are a natural, what has your response been? If you are not natural, what do you think about those who wear their hair naturally?
Please be mindful and respectful as you comment...
