I know a lot of people will disagree with this and Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri (Editor, GhanaCelebrities.Com) will particular be disappointed because of his obsession with natural hair—and somewhat equating that to sexiness and ‘smartness’.
According to a research conducted by the cosmetic company-Bountiful Hair, women with natural hair have lower self-esteem compared to women with treated hair.
Of course if you have a cosmetic company conducting such a research, then you may as well not have it done—because in real life, it takes a confident woman with high self-esteem to want to rock natural.
Newstrend website reports that; “According to the study by Bountiful Hair, natural hair being viewed as a messy look is causing many women, who wear their hair in that manner, to feel inadequate and less desirable as their counterparts. Those feelings of inadequacy causes women with natural hair to lash out at women with treated or straightened hair, and in turn lowers their self-esteem.
Of the 3,000 women who participated in the study, 2,500 said they did not feel as pretty as women with straightened hair. Pilar Ciara Jones, who says she participated in the study, stated, “some days I just don’t know what to do with these naps — and on those days I just avoid the mirror altogether.”
“I try to tell myself that wearing my hair natural is all about empowerment and expressing natural beauty, but there were times when I just did not feel pretty,” Jones continued. “When you continuously break combs because your hair is so nappy, and you use everything in your refrigerator to try to tame that mane, and you still have hair so rough you could polish rocks, you begin to reevaluate your choices.”
“At one point I was using a gallon of milk and a dozen eggs on my hair every day to try to soften it. That’s when I knew it was time to make a change. I got a relaxer and a Brazilian weave down to my butt, and I have never felt prettier,” Jones stated.
Bountiful Hair says the feelings by Jones are common among women with natural hair.”
