Natural hair began as so much more than a hairstyle. Natural hair was African American’s gripping their race, their nationality, and the things that made them unique. For a long time, African American’s were oppressed, put down for their differences. The age of natural hair was the African American race fighting back, thrusting a fist into the air, and saying simply, “We are proud of who we are. We are proud to be different.”
