The difference there is it was obvious there was a "natural black hair" movement going on. I've known about "black hair history" for years, as well. However, based on what I've read and from comments...

I thought the "natural hair movement" was for women who decided to go naturally curly, but clearly I was wrong. I read that for years-- since the early 2000's. The idea of it "belonging" to...

But who is pushing the original victim aside? It's pushing aside the victim to say you too, have natural curly hair? I don't get it. What do non-black women with curly hair say about their hair? Can...

I kind of agree with you. I guess my question is, if curly hair is prevalent across all races why is there a need to think "their" hair is being exploited?
