include everybody. anyone with any amount of texture in their hair is welcome here. passing judgment on whether someone else’s hair is “curly enough” is neither useful nor productive for our common goal of bringing out the best in our hair. please also remember that terms like “afro” and “big chop” have a long and complex history within the natural hair movement for black women (see wiki). to keep our community welcoming, it’s important that we respect these words and use them appropriately.

respect cultural terms the natural hair movement has a long history and the words
wrote in it have meanings. it’s important to respect where these words, techniques, and more came from, and celebrate the importance of the work done by these early pioneers. please be aware of terms such as “big chop”, “afro”, “natural hair journey”. be thoughtful and respectful about using these powerful terms appropriately!
