Black woman should be able to feel confident and comfortable while having their hair natural, especially during formal occasions or dressing up in general.
Too many of us feel like we need to get our hair straightened or manipulated in order to “tame” it, when our hair is fine how it is. Our hair texture is not too ugly or inappropriate for formal occasions. Our hair is not too unprofessional for interviews or office jobs either.
We need to challenge ourselves to embrace our hair all the time and encourage others to do the same. Inspire other Black girls and women to wear their natural curls not only casually, but whenever they feel the need to get their hair done for the wrong reasons.
Representation matters, and that is exactly what opened my eyes and made me realize my hair is enough. My hair is good hair no matter what anyone says.
If you want to inspire other Black women and girls, or challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone, please consider taking pictures of yourselves rocking your 4 type hair. It doesn’t matter the occasion. If you decide to submit or post photos in a formal setting, share your reason. Tell us why you went natural in general if you’d like.
Feel free to share your natural hair stories, routines, and so on.
Our hair is not just hair. It is part of our culture. It is part of us. We should be proud and celebrate it. No more crying or insecurities about our hair. Only praises, upliftment, and self love–which is why I am calling this idea “NapturalAnthem“.
Please tag your pictures, stories, hair hacks and tips NapturalAnthem. Either submit or post it yourself and include the tag
Society, in and outside the Black community needs to start singing a new tune when it comes to 4 type hair.
Here’s a short list of natural hair videos to get you started.

Confession: Any girl out there with 4c/type 4 hair, afraid to wear it out because of people putting down our hair, DO NOT BE AFRAID .Our hair is beautiful too ! Hold your head up high and let the negativity bounce off of you . Ignore any ignorance ❤❤
Confession- Honestly I’m tired of my natural hair I know it’s on my head and there’s nothing I can do to change that but I still hate it. I know people will try to tell me all the positives about 4c hair and how thick it is or versatile it is and I get that but it’s not easy for me too just fall in love with my hair. I’m young and impressionable and people may think that my want for loose curls and straight hair will just leave the next month. But it won’t that amount of times I have looked up how to go from 4c to 3a knowing I won’t find anything but still do it anyway. Looking up natural hair youtubers but only finding loose kinks and curls making Me wish mine was like theirs.
I honestly understand that people can love their own 4c hair and that’s fine. but I hate mine and in some wierd way I kind of got used to it and just look after it. It’s not a matter of oh I just haven’t found the right methods believe me I’ve tried but I guess me and my kinks just won’t get along
