mybeautifulambitionx said: I'm not against natural hair because I'm 100% all natural! I straighten my hair because it's easier to work with. I understand what Beyoncé is doing to blue ivy hair! I'm all for it. I just wish I could see some cute lil twist, or some protective braids. Cause you know at the age of two lil black girls hair was braided up with some beads! Lol I'm not saying bey has to do it, but I think that's what black women wanna see In blues hair. Now I love me a good wash and go fro with some good moisture!
She does do protective styles with Blue’s hair as seen here:
We hardly ever see Blue. She’s probably wearing these styles regularly. If her hair wasn’t being properly maintained, it wouldn’t be as thick and long has it is now. I haven’t seen many two-year-olds with that much hair.
"Cause you know at the age of two lil black girls hair was braided up with some beads" — Yeah and a lot of those little black girls now have thinning edges and short hair. Just because it’s done a lot, doesn’t mean it’s good thing.
And she’s only a baby, her scalp is sensitive. Wearing tight twists/braids and barrettes all the time is going to pull out her hair. And think about this: Why does her hair need to be in “cute ponytails" or "beads" as you’re saying? Do little white girls or Asian girls or Hispanic girls have to wear their hair like that? No. Black girls should be able to wear their hair out in that same way if they want to. It shouldn’t have to be pulled back. And where is this "not moisturized" assumption even coming from? The only way you’d be able to tell is if you’ve actually touched her hair.
I appreciate that you’re trying to be natural but you need to do more research on the natural hair movement and black hair care.
