There was a time when natural hair was synonymous with religion or faith, today, that is no longer the case; everyone is going back to the natural way, now, natural hair is synonymous with fashion.
It started gradually with some ladies courageously taking the step if transitioning, that is, separating themselves from chemicals.
Now almost all or celebrities are taking that route. Everyone wants to be a ‘naturalista’… According to the naturalistas we have, it takes great courage and determination to transition.
More surprising is the fact that under all the Brazilian and Peruvian hair is a chunk of healthy natural hair. Some actresses will shock you with the length of their curly natural hair.
We all know the fantastic four as they call them; the quartet of Omoni Oboli, Uche Jombo, Chioma Chukwuka and Ufoma McDermott. These four most likely started the natural hair journey together.
Some of us did not believe our eyes when we saw Tayo Sobola’s chunk of healthy natural hair! So much Peruvian hair did the hiding.
Genevieve Nnaji is another naturalista with curly chemical free hair.
Lala Akindoju and Adesua Etomi are not left out of the trend. They are as Natural as the fantastic four.
Lastly, we have Kate Henshaw. Kate has a mass of natural hair on her head which when pulled or straightened gets to the center of her back.
We definitely have more who are already on the journey of transitioning… Very soon, we’ll meet more of them as they unveil their successes.
