Debunking natural hair myths 2

Hey my loves, let’s look at more natural hair myths that make us cringe! In part 1, we looked at the saga of natural hair growth, how weaves can potentially make your hair not natural and how colouring your hair can relax your hair lool (Not really but you get my point!). Read part 1 of debunking natural hair myths here >

Let’s take a look at the myths we are debunking today

You can’t dye natural hair a bright colour/ it’s very difficult to achieve bright hair colours with natural hair, especially if it’s dark or black

The truth is, whether hair is natural or not, any hair that is naturally black or dark may be a bit difficult to dye, especially if you want a brighter colour. In my personal experience, when I was still learning about hair (Not just natural hair but how to take care of hair in general), I didn’t know this. I would buy hair dye and try and dye my hair or extensions and be frustrated because the colour didn’t turn out right! Until I realised in some cases you would have to ‘lift’ the hair, a few shades lighter before you can dye it the colour you like.

Needless to say, through trial and error (On my wigs, because I don’t dye my hair anymore), I found two popular brands that will dye your hair the colour you want without the lifting process aka bleaching. Although for really bright, intense colours e.g. a bright red or platinum blonde, you may have to go through the bleaching process or using peroxide to lift your hair a few shades lighter. I found that the Crème of Nature and Dark and Lovely brands are really popular among naturals and work perfectly to dye your hair ( if you guys know of anymore, kindly leave comments). I have used the latter and always recommend it when someone asks me for suggestions for hair dye. A friend of mine also swears by Crème of Nature. Take a look at my previous posts on how to achieve an ombre look with Dark and Lovely golden blonde hair:

In terms of the dye working on natural hair, watch these videos for yourself





So after that, it’s safe to say this myth can be trashed!

Natural hair, nappy hair and the obsession with nappies

Ok now this one I completely don’t get. Let’s start with an illustration

The two are completely different so can we stop calling natural hair something that collects waste please! No matter the origin of the word nappy for natural hair, its 2015 and we grown! I’m sure we have some common sense. Thank you


Men don’t find natural hair attractive

First I should say this, if a guy is not approaching you because he thinks you are not attractive because of you have natural hair then that guy is not worth your time or energy.

It’s all about personal preference, if he likes natural hair cool if he prefers weave cool, relaxed hair cool, braids cool, TWA cool, short blonde hair with blue-black tips cool. That’s his preferences and it’s got nothing to do with you. You keep remaining fly and rock your hair, after all you went natural for healthy hair not for a guy! There’s actually videos on this on YouTube, please check them out


That’s all for part 2 guys. Let me know what you think below, I would love to hear your thoughts on the suggestions above. What myths have you heard about natural hair that make you cringe? We will carry on our discussion a bit later on


Until then, have a good night
