A lady friend of mine wears her black hair in the most beautiful combination of a dred / twisty combination I’ve ever seen. Her combination of two black natural hair styles greatly enhances the beauty she is blessed with.
I have a blogger friend that has the most beautiful entanglement of black and gray curly velvet tresses I’ve ever seen.
Then there is the writer that works on this blog who wears her hair cut to the skull.
All of them are beautiful women by nature.
All of them could very well have chosen to wear their hair straight – as millions of black women do. So-called “white beauty standards” would have us believe that black women wearing their hair straight is some kind of indication they want to be or “look” white.

Thickness is a beauty attribute synonymous with Black Women. Black women have always been identified with and owned voluptuousness. The fashion industry and society have tried and failed at attempting to paint chunky, curvy, plus-size, big, ample, full-figured, BBW, big-boned, thick, voluptuous, heavy-set as taboo and unhealthy.
Yes, an over abundance of anything can be detrimental to one’s health but to paint ample body physique as all around unhealthy is simply wrong. Confusing healthy ample weight with obesity has been the big red herring that’s thrown a cloak over the beauty of thickness. And to attempt to label physiques of size some sort of social ill is simply biased.
