Inspirational YOU and Motherhood Reconstructed proudly present the second instalment of their natural hair and well-being panel discussion, “What does natural mean in 2017?”

For black women across the diaspora, the choice of how one wears their hair is at times more than simply a personal choice. Often, it’s rife with social and political implications that can have a profound impact on all aspects of one’s life.

This series is a forum for all to come together and discuss the beauty and visibility of natural hair.  The Black hair care industry is worth £88 million and as utilising the rise of social influencers to reach a new audience. 

This panel of industry influencers will discuss hair maintenance, wellbeing, hair stories, style options, professional experiences and reflections on what it means to be natural in 2017 in an inclusive and lively environment.

Discussion - Series 1

The growing number of Black women transitioning from chemically relaxed to natural hair styles has inspired a strong sisterhood within the hair care community. Yet it has also spawned divisions between wearers of relaxed hair vs. natural and has led to a debate among over what it means to be natural.

Some natural hair advocates believe that natural hair refers to texture, not colour or length, and as long as the chemical structure of the hair is unaltered, it can be considered natural. Supporters of this argument would likely consider commercial hair products, wigs, weaves, and even hair straightening with a hot comb, acceptable hair care options that fall under the natural-hair umbrella.

Others argue that the natural hair movement is a celebration of Black women’s beauty, hair textures and hairstyles, and so wigs, weaves, hair colouring, extensions, or using a flat iron do not constitute being natural.
