Do you get upset when not seeing at least one natural present in a series of television or print ads? Can you spot another natural from miles away? Do you walk past a mirror and do a double-take and smile at your own hair? When it comes to family and friends are you the go-to person for natural hair questions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and fit five or more of the descriptions below, you definitely love being natural.

You Know You Love Being Natural When…

  • Either your T-shirt, tote bag, key chain or any other accessory saysyou are.
  • You can’t remember the last time you straightened your hair.
  • You have your own library of natural hair books.
  • You don’t own a flat iron.
  • You belong to more than one natural hair social networking community.
  • You have a natural hair blog.
  • TWA, ACV, EVOO, Co-wash, Poo/Pre-poo, EO and Hand-in-Fro are a part of your vocabulary.
  • You follow or subscribe to other naturals via Fotki, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc.
  • You are aware of the effects of petrolatum, SLS/SLES, parabens, paraffins, and ‘cones’ and you are not a chemist.
  • Instead of avoiding water, you run to it, even using it as a styling aid.

    TamiaS… That’s me!

  • You love being natural when…you feel an instant bond with other naturals you encounter!
    I went natural almost 3 years ago and it was the best decision I made. I bought one of Andrea’s prints of Christmas, love it!

  • I love how clutch boasts about loving natural hair, and then has an ad for indian weave :sneer:

    • Hi Roni – we love all hair types and honestly – those Indian ads are what helps keep Clutch running (mean revenue to keep Clutch running – we are a small biz)

    i cut my hair down to the natural curl in March of 2009 and literally haven’t even put a comb in my hair in over i’ll say 6 months and haven’t had to even go to the barbershop in over 4 months… hehehe- how many ppl can say that? i don’t miss the chemical burns, sitting in the salon for an 8 hour shift, or the dry and flaky scalp that i used to have. during Christmas i passed by a couple salons while i was out shopping and remembered sayin’ to myself GEEZ they must be givin’ away hair-it’s soooo crowded. then it hit me that those ladies were really waiting to get there hair done (can’t remember the last time i did that). i love being natural!!!

  • Love my hair — big hair, don’t care!!

    (Just don’t try to touch it, yes, it looks like cotton and is just as soft — but you see with your eyes, not with your hands) :D
