Flaunt Follicles: "Good Hair"

Part#1 The reason I decided to make this post was because I have been lacking on the maintenance of my own hair and need to get it back to health. I have natural hair meaning there is no chemical processing whatsoever. I will write more posts regarding my hair which will be a continuation of my "Healthly Hair Journey" to restore, encourage & dedicate full energy to get the healthy hair I already had. I encourage those who aren't natural to go natural because nothing's better than knowing your own crown & glory by embracing each strain. Below are pics of my hair after growing out the relaxer (full & healthy), and how it currently looks (slightly damaged). As I share this journey, I will include my hair regimens, styling techniques, products & more!

This was my hair at it's healthiest about 1 yr ago w/ no relaxer or weave just flat ironed & 100% mine.
About 9 months ago still full & healthy. It's current state NOW, slightly damaged.

Part#2 There has also been years and years of talk on what it means to have "good hair" amongst the black community. The only thing I can do is relate this issue to my own experiences. In my opinion "good hair"=healthy hair. So with that said it really doesn't matter what your hair looks like or the texture of your hair. I believe any & everyone has "good hair" as long as it exist & it's healthy. This clip is from Chris Rock's movie "Good Hair". It highlights the misconceptions of what it means to have "good hair" from several black women, the hair industry, and others opinions on the issue. He addresses these topics in a comical yet truthful way so I'm curious as to how it will turn out. I can only hope woman of Color can realize the depth of our hair issues, overcome them, embrace our own hair, learn how to properly care for it, and make this issue less of an issue. Now with all this hair talk I wonder how I'll wear my hair to the movie! lol.

stay Fierce, be Fearless, & Flaunt got it!
