South African women have it going on, and these days they are more natural than ever!
South Africans are represented in the natural hair movement! South Africans have adopted much of Black America’s culture and truly connect with African Americans on another level. Perhaps this could be due to the fact that South Africans share much of the pain that African Americans have endured, like the oppression African Americans faced dealing with Apartheid.
South African women are divine and beautiful. They also do the whole natural hair movement but they have escalated it to the next level. Most of the women in South Africa are starting to rock their own natural hair in its natural state. This means they are perming or adding chemicals as much. These women are not trying to define their curls. They are rocking genuine Afros and becoming more proud of their own natural hair texture by large quantities, energizing the natural hair movement.
You have to be proud them. The beautiful Black women of South Africa are not even resorting to extensions as much. South African women are embracing their blackness to the fullest degree! You can feel that these women definitely have an aspiration to be recognized for the #BlackGirlMagic hair shine like the true royalty that they are.
You have to be proud of the fact that there are places in the world where Black women do not embrace weave as heavily as many of us have become accustomed to. You have to love the fact that there are places that you can still go to where Black women see themselves as beautiful without altering their themselves to conform to beauty standards that are the total opposite of what their true beauty is.
South African women are beautiful and hopefully, they can further inspire African Americans as well as Africans throughout the diaspora to embrace their own natural beauty and not be brainwashed or distracted by what mass media purports to be the official beauty standard.
It’s a good thing that Black women in America have started to wake up and understand the importance of loving themselves and their natural hair. South Africa has taken notice and these beautiful women are not playing games when it comes to their natural beauty.
Hopefully, the South Africans along with African American women will continue to embrace their natural beauty and push the natural hair movement to other parts of the world where the movement is not as strong. These women are making an impact and showing Black women all over the world that their own natural hair is beautiful and give them enough courage to embrace this natural beauty.
Black men love and respect Black women who embrace their own natural beauty and don’t feel the need to wear other people’s hair in their heads, or animal hair in their heads just so they can look more like the people who are born with such hair.
