THE NATURAL’S MANIFESTO
noun ( pl. manifestos )
a public declaration of policy and aims, especially one issued before an election by a political party or candidate.
ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from Italian, from manifestare, from Latin, ‘make public’, from manifestus ‘obvious’
The Afroniquely You natural’s manifesto refers to the guidelines and aims by which we as natural’s will govern our journey. A public road-block if you will of the top 10 expectations and do’s and don’ts as a natural!
A lot of us probably haven’t even thought about hair types or even know what I am referring to..Well before I became natural I had no idea what it was either. I would read articles and people would say “I have 3b hair” or “what do you use for 4b hair?” and while reading those articles blank expressions would be on my face. I was clueless. Well I’d like to take this time to share with you the world of Hair Typing.
