6. You exercise frequently.
There’s no better feeling after a sweaty workout than a refreshing shower. In the warmer months, having natural hair will allow you to do “wash n go’s.“ Cool water against your scalp will leave you feeling invigorated (and keep odors at bay).
7. Salon visits are burning a hole in your wallet.
Maintaining relaxed hair is best done by a professional and can run you anywhere from $50 to $150. Natural hair requires no chemicals, so you immediately cut your expenses once you stop relaxing. Plus, with natural hair, besides salon visits for trims or haircuts, you can do a lot of the maintenance at home.
8. You’re addicted to your weave.
Chain-weavers repeatedly add extensions without giving their manes time to rest, often times because they’re so attached with their weaves. You and your weave are not one. Repeat after me: I am not my weave. My weave does not make me beautiful. Now go natural and prove it (to yourself!).
9. You want more versatility.
No weaves required! You’ll be able to experiment with curly and straight dos then go back curly again. Twists, twists-outs, Bantu knots, braid-outs and more let you to play with different textures.
10. You can’t remember what your natural texture looks and feels like.
Many of us haven’t seen our hair in its natural state since our preteens. Go natural to fall in love with your kinks, coils and curls all over again.
