What a TRULY inspirational thread! I saw lots of fabulous styles and even see a few my favorite naturals (Mdwezi, Chocolatte, Sandy Coils). I was even more surprised to see a picture of myself lol.

Thanks everyone for posting great inspiration pics. It's helps so many stuggling naturals to love their hair and to continue with their natural journey.

Stay strong and keep posting.

Wow! I'm in love with this thread! I'm sharing this with my little daughters so they'll continue to admire and love natural hair. They are in elementary school and sometimes compare themselves to the majority of girls they see (straight and/or long). They know they have beautiful kinky hair but I think this will help them visualize the beautiful versatile options they'll have as young ladies.

Thanks to all who shared pix and please continue!!!
Hello Ladies, I saw the beautiful pics on this thread and it made me feel so proud to have natural hair! Thank EVERYONE of you that shared this. I wish they could be put on bill boards around this world, in school books, on stamps, just everywhere! So many women and our little girls dont know how truly BEAUTIFUL natural hair is. We have been brain-washed for long enough. I hope this thread will encourage more people using chemicals to try and discover their original God-given, naturally beautiful hair!

All I can say again is...WOW...Go head wit yall BAD selves!!!!!!
Okay so I was late night fotki stalking and came across sera25 's fotki. OMG She's entirely 4b and her hair is AMAZING after 5 years of growth she's at waist length UNSTRETCHED! I would link her album, but I feel bad because it's not my personal pics so I wouldn't want someone taking my link and posting it up if I were her, but just search the name in fotki. She puts straight hair to shame!

Currently trying to formulate the perfect styling pudding. Once that happens all other things left over will be thrown out, given away. From then on I'm only buying to RESTOCK.

What do hair typing, Santa, the bogey man, and the great pumpkin all have in common? My utter and complete disbelief in them of course.

I found a cool website of a photographer who takes some awesome photos of Black people, many of natural hair. I can't post them directly though:

I always figure if people have put their natural haired fotkis out in the internet they have decided that this is what it is for. Women interested in caring for and looking at natural hair.
