I got into a heated debate with my roommate yesterday. She claimed that I was not natural because I choose to wear make up and wear extensions. However, I stated that I am natural because I wear my natural hair underneath, Then, I asked her if she considers herself natural and she said yes because she does not wear extensions or make up. However, she does wear perm but she disagreed and said that does not matter. I, on the other hand have never put chemicals in my hair. I wear extensions because I like it. I choose to wear braids because they are more manageable. Also, it is protective styling for my hair and it’s a way for my natural hair to grow. We both decided to agree to disagree on what makes a girl natural. But, that left me wondering, what classifies a girl as natural? There are many girls who wear their hair in its natural form but wear make up. Does that make them not natural? I would say natural can be defined in many ways.
