My name is Rachel and I am a NATURALISTA. “What is a NATURALISTA?” You ask..
The definition by http://www.urbandictionary.com is:
Naturalista : A Black female who takes pride in her Black hair (hair that is not permed or been chemically changed in anyway).A naturalista is someone who wears their hair the way that it naturally grows out of their scalp. This could mean they have curly, wavy or “kinky” hair. Whichever “hair type” they may identify with, they love and accept themselves because they know and understand that they are beautiful in their anatomy.
I define myself as a naturalista I have so much pride in showing off my fro. I love my hair and how perfect it is. My hair says I’M STRONG!!!! My hair says I’M BEAUTIFUL and I’M POWERFUL !!! I take pride in my hair and how it stands out. I started my YouTube Channel a year ago to help other naturalistas and encourage anyone interested in going natural. I love to help others realize just how amazing being natural is.
I take this moment to encourage you to embrace your natural side no matter what others may say. Don’t be ashamed of what’s yours take pride of your natural state. Thank you for your support in advance and don’t forget to share with your friends.
