Natural hair is as diverse as it can get, especially since there are so many different textures of hair. I've thought about going natural a couple times, but to be honest, trying to grow out relaxed hair is HARD. It's so much more fragile and I know that the BIG CHOP would not be an option for me. For African American women who feel the pressure to buy every hair product in beauty supply stores in order to attempt (and ultimately fail) to grow their hair down their backs, it takes A LOT of courage and self-confidence to go to that hair salon and cut any significant amount of hair.
That being said, those of you with natural hair have a lot more guts than me or about 95% of the African American population.
Peace. Love. Fashion
