A dear relative is butt-hurt over another relative's calling herself natural. She does a rollerset and airdries "curly" so that her roots match her ends now that she is stretching her relaxers out and can see waves/curls of newgrowth. The other one hates that, especially since she has done the BC this year (so now she's the natural hair expert).
I just don't care how other people refer to their hair unless they're giving me advice. It doesn't affect my hair, or theirs either, as it's just a word.
Bottom line, if she stopped getting relaxers a week ago, and she feels that 1/8 of unrelaxed hair is justification to call herself natural, who are we to tell her otherwise? No need to split hairs, it's a big step putting a relaxer down, so let her get through it how she sees fit
Better she call herself natural now and get used to it, than to chop it all off to be "certified" as natural, and then get another relaxer in 2 weeks
(ironically the second DR I mentioned did this).
No heat since August 2015
