For black women, natural hair can be a crowning glory. Completely elaborate in all it’s complexities, types, and curl patterns, natural hair is just flat out amazing—and so are many of the products for natural hair we use to tame it.
While I’m not one to boast much, I can’t help but to shout from the rooftops how super proud I am to be part of the natural hair club.

As Spiderman’s grandma once said, “With great power comes great responsibility”—that definitely applies to rocking a natural mane. The impact natural blue hair gel that smells good has had one the fashion world, especially during NYFW, is major. Outside of the fashion world and into the everyday mainstream, it’s up to us to properly empower and illustrate the majesty that is natural black hair.
