Go on Instagram and search for photos with the hashtag #TeamNatural or #Naturalista or #NaturalHair or #ProtectiveStyles and you're sure to see tons and tons of women who have natural hair. That's good, right? Right. However, if you look closely, a good number of the photos are of kinky weaves, marley twists, crochet braids and more.

Some hardcore naturalistas would say that these women aren't truly repping natural hair, because of the use of extensions. Others would disagree, because we have come to a time where there are extensions that mimic or at least look like natural hair - and that in itself, is to be celebrated and doesn't make their hair any less natural.
I personally have come across two or three women who I've noticed ONLY rock their own natural hair, and have given me slightly judgmental looks for occasionally wearing wigs or using extensions for crochet braids and the like.
I wanted to pose this question to you. Does wearing wigs, crochet braids, marley hair etc make someone less #TeamNatural? Yes? No? Neither agree or nor disagree? Tell me what you think in the comments.
