Hair is important to women… it allows us to project a certain image of ourselves to the world.

The Debate: Grow Natural or Go Straight?

At the start of each New Year, many black women ask this very question; "should I grow natural or go straight?"


Most black women have some version of a naturally kinky hair type, a feature that we were born with. However, many black women want a different look.

In an effort to solve this dilemma, I will discuss some of the most common explanations.

For decades, many black women have been forced to choose sides in a metaphorical battle between kinky and straight hair types. Whether we recognize it or not, black women are divided into two sides:

"Should I stay natural or should I go straight?"
