This is going to be a short post, but I want to get your opinions on the subject so please leave a comment. I have wondered many times whether in the natural hair community, there's a bit too much focus on long natural hair. Like I mentioned last week, there are lots and lots of Google searches on "natural hair LENGTH RETENTION," "how to have LONG NATURAL HAIR," "how can I GROW my natural hair," etc. There's nothing wrong with wanting long hair, but do you think there's a bias?
On Instagram, sometimes it seems that ladies with longer hair get more likes and follows. Even offline, I know that I got more compliments when people started seeing my hair as "long natural hair" instead of "natural hair."
|Personally, I don't think my hair is long. It's medium length.|
I think that the higher affection for longer hair downplays the beauty of shorter lengths of hair, and almost the TWA. Although I have to admit that some people with TWAs rock them so well, it makes people like me want to start all over again. Anyway, maybe it's all in my head.
Or maybe not. What do you think?
