"Great style icon ! and also I notice that a lot of the featured naturals on this blog are from New York... or just NOT west coast at that. I'm in Riverside, California and I'm thinkin are we too caught up in the LA, Hollywood look over here? I know I chickened out and postponed my plan to wear natural hair because every black girl I know rocks a weave and or relaxer.."
I never really thought about that, but I found it SO interesting! So I went back into the BGLH archives and yes, a good number of our style icons and rock solid regimens are from New York. Most notably our lovely haircare expert; Jenny:
I also noticed that a good number of style icons/RSRs are from Southern states.
This blog is by no means representative of all natural women. But what do you think of this? Are some states more conducive to rocking natural hair than others??? California ladies; do you think the Hollywood culture prevents women from embracing their natural hair? For the rest of you; is your state reppin hard for the natural? Or are there things that make repping natural hair a bit harder in your state?
International ladies, what about the cities in your country?
Thanks Kelly for the thought provoking comment!
