I came across an interesting article speaking to the subject: “Do all Black Men Hate Their Nappy Hair”.

You wouldn’t know it from watching the You Tube videos, but make no mistake – women of all ages have joined the natural haircare movement, including our beautiful, mature, kinky, coily, curly haired naturals.
Heck, most older natural haired beauties have been rockin’ their natural hair for decades!
