7 Reasons Why You Should Rock Your Natural Hair.

7 Reasons Why You Should Rock Your Natural Hair

Your natural hair is more beautiful than you thing

For many years now, Expensive human hair has been trending in Nigeria and this has made wearing your natural hair some sort of a ‘taboo’. People see ladies in their natural hair as local, poor and lacking fashion sense. Gone are the days when ladies are seen in traditional Nigerian hairstyles like didi, patewo, and shuku, etc.

This is not surprising because many Nigerians have a knack for anything trending, expensive and foreign. If you’re wearing Brazilian hair, Peruvian and Afghanistan hair, then you will be classed as rich and fashionable. You see ladies with long hair that is almost sweeping the floor, all fake. For those struggling to embrace their natural hair, we have summarized six (7) reasons to inspired you so you can slay and still save money as the same time.

Here are 7 reasons why you natural hair is better

Natural hair inspiration

#1. Affordability 

With your natural hair, you don’t need to spend any money on buying human hair which may cost as much as N70,000. In fact, with this recession, the cost of the hair may have risen significantly. At least have mercy on your partner and plait your natural hair. Even if you are paying it from your pocket, it is wise that you save by plaiting your hair.

#2. Time saving

Imagine this scenario…You have a function later in the day and you’ve not had your hair done because your stylist is not around. You eventually found a hair salon, you spend hours having your hair done, you are groggy and tire already. Except you drive at 220 kph, you might have already missed the event you plan to attend. Why not just plait your natural hair in minutes and save time!

#3. It’s so Beautiful

The biggest accusation against wearing natural or kinky hair is that it doesn’t make you appear beautiful. This is entirely false. You don’t have to plait your natural hair the way it is done in the pass. You can add swag and you will be shocked by the compliments you will receive from your admirers. Don’t forget to thank us!

#4. No risk of hair loss or injury

Women use all sorts of chemicals and materials on their hair in the name of plaiting their hairs. Flat-iron, hair dryers, and other countless equipment you use for your hair. Unfortunately for them, what they aren’t aware of is that they will slowly lose their natural hair. Although you can wear your hair anyhow you deem it fit, you should try wearing your natural hair. You will notice the difference.

#5. It is Water friendly 

When it’s about to rain, you find women desperately looking for their shower cap in their handbag. If you can’t find it, you either buy one or use a nylon (which can be crude) in a bid to cover their hair.  All this baggage doesn’t come with wearing your natural hair.

#6. You’re Preserving the lost Natural hair tradition

Like earlier said, if the dependence on anything foreign continues, everything Nigerian will soon evaporate. You may want to wear your natural hair to save it from extinction. Perhaps, a Nigerian day for natural hair should be declared. A day for no attachment. Just plait your natural hair. You will really feel good about doing something different!

#7. You can become a natural hair Influencer

A lot of ”naturalistas” are gaining more popularity and making money with their natural hair. As an influencer, you will be sharing tips and contents (articles and video) on a blog and social media platforms to inspire other ladies to slay in their natural hair. By doing so, vendors selling beauty products for natural can use you platform to advertise their product. Many influencers are making a lot of money by loving their natural.
