Eye for the naturals

Post by LovelyCurls on 14th February 2010, 3:00 am

Okay, so I must admit...since I have been natural (Nov 08, BC on June 23, 2009), I started to notice more women with their natural hair. I notice it more in commercials, movies, sitcoms, and of course while I am out and about. Its like when you get that new car and then you start to notice how everyone seems to have your car...lol. Only in this case its a good thing. I love to see women comfortable in their own skin and proud of it. Do you have that eye for natural? Have you been aware of more naturals now that you are natural or transitioning? hmmmm

Yesssss... I see them everywhere. I'm always on the lookout for more naturals. I didn't even realize how many there were until I took the plunge myself.

yea, i've experienced the same thing! im currently attending college(HBCU) and I see a lot more girls with natural hair. I'm not sure if I never noticed it before or what, but even alot of my friends are going natural now.. I think natural hair is sooooo pretty & it seems that girls with it have ALOt more confidence (not arrogance or snobbiness) than relaxed-hair girls...

Same here! I'm seeing more and more natural sistas in NYC everyday! And everytime I pass one, we give each other that "smile" like "Yeah, WE GOT THIS!!" [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yes! I notice it more as well and as LadyMika said, I look at them and smile like "go girl!" LOL. The funniest thing to me though...is that my husband notices it more too! He always like "look honey a natural' LOL or "Look she has a TWA" I love it! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yes, I love to look at naturals. I try not to stare when I'm out, but it's so hard. I want to talk to her, but don't want to sound crazy.

Maybe, it will be a little easier now that I am a natural, too.

Yes, and it's a beatiful thing. If I'm close enough I always compliment them which usually starts a convo that last 10+ mins.

Lol, you are so right! I work in retail and I see natural women all the time. Sometimes I just wanna run up to see if they need help (as an icebreaker) and tell them how pretty their hair is and ask how did they acheive their specific looks. I can never take my eyes off of their hair [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

yes! i've been seeing natural women everywhere lately!
its a crazy feeling cuz i still remember only ever seeing Mel B (scary spice) and Rachel True with curly hair and being so mystified as to how they got their hair to do that lol

i'm also noticing a lot of curly kids and i keep wanting to run up to their parents to tell them about all the products the should use on the kids hair lol

Me too!! I've been seeing naturals everywhere and it makes me so happy. I recently saw two naturals on the jury on last week's episode of the good wife. I believe one have a twa and the other had shoulder length braids. Additionally,their makeup and clothing was on point. I feel even better when I see teenage girls with their natural hair becuase I know about the challenges,lol.

I went to the annual International Festival here in Houston last weekend, omg, there were so many natural beauties everywhere, men and women! I was having hair overload! So many big beautiful fros, little cute ones, long and short locs. And I swear every vendor was selling shea butter and oils, was a hair paradise!
