This was a very interesting video from YouTube celebrity EfikZara
She basically just takes a moment to rant and explain that she has become frustrated by the strictness and rules that many women in the natural hair community try to enforce upon others.
And it’s true, some sistas do behave as if it should be against the law or against someone’s religion to use certain products.
Protective Styling or an “Excuse”? Girrrl...
The other day I even heard a woman say that some naturals use the term “protective styling” as an excuse to wear "fake hair".
I thought that was ridiculous:
Because it was as if This woman was saying that other grown women actually needed an excuse to wear a product that they buy with their own money.
That was messed up and super judgmental.
And although we don't encourage the use of chemical relaxers because of health problems that it could bring. I want you to check her video out and tell me below if you agree with her sentiments.
Watch Vid To Hear Her Spill The Tea...
Conclusion: She's Right...
I do understand EfikZara’s frustration with having so many outside voices telling other people what they should do with their own hair.
So look: As with any movement or group of people moving in the same direction you will always have your extremist.
People who think that everyone else should do things EXACTLY as they do.
Hopefully, sistas like EfikZara won't allow others to discourage them and knock them off their square.
And honestly, I hope more YouTube natural hair vloggers begin to speak out about a lot of the double standards that there are in the natural hair community, especially against darker skin women, type 4 hair and short hair.
