The Debate: Natural or Not

Just about a year ago, my hair was pretty much non-existent as I wore it shaved really low in a caesar. However, just as unpredictable as the decision to shave my dome, the decision to let it grow came just as quickly. And, that's exactly what I've been doing--letting it grow!

Of course, every now and then, I get the 'itch' to cut here or chop it off there but have been able to resist the urge (so far). Instead, I opt for color to provide a little 'umph' to my tresses.....not that my locs can't speak loudly for themselves (no, not at all). I choose to add color because it suits my personality, it appeals to my mood.

Hmmmm.....but does this a natural make? Or am I more like a quasi-natural? Better yet, is being natural more of an attitude and/or lifestyle? For example, though I am without a perm, I have chemically applied color to my 'bush' but let me get in a swimming pool, I assure you that my hair will sure enough shrivel up like the next..... Let's talk! Natural or Not?

Our newest BushBroads!

Shots from the latest capture of 3 beautiful ladies....



From the Mouth of Monique*

Beauty Redefined… That is how I sum up my experience working with the Bush Broads dream team. From the moment I walked into the building I could feel the creativity flowing from these beautiful ladies. I was nervous at first because I didn’t know how things were going to play out but I was also filled with excitement. On my way there I kept thinking of how they were going to dress me up and if I could actually pull it off. Its one thing to snap pictures of yourself in your bathroom but to have a team of professionals who exude pure style and haute-ness is a whole different experience. I felt so blessed to be a part of their vision.

I am sure they wondered what I was thinking of as I sat quietly in my chair. I traveled back to my teenage years when I would thumb through high fashion magazines dreaming of being in the shoes of a super model. The only problem was there were no models that looked like me. Black women come in many sizes, shapes, and color however the standard of beauty portrayed in the media didn’t reflect our diverse images. Black women and especially natural black women were underrepresented then and even now. As more black women return to their natural roots the image of beauty continually evolves. Bush Broads are redefining beauty and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to be a part of the project.
Peace & Blessings

So Says Stacey~

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to be utterly transformed by the Bush Broad ladies. The transformation (for me) was not simply physical. Through the process of physical transformation I got to be enriched by taking part in the creation of art by a group of women who love what they do, and are willing to brave heat, bugs, and inquisitive land lords to nail the look they want. The art they want. It was inspiring (so inspiring that it caused me to get off my arse and get some writing done when I got home!)

The experience served as a spark to myself esteem to think that I just as I am "pretty wings" and all could be a piece of art, a treasure. It was a shift in my perception of who I am. People can tell you repeatedly "you're special", "you're worthy" but experiences like this one allow you to see the evidence. In short, I would HIGHLY recommend taking part in this project. It is a healing inspiration, and I'm glad that I was allowed to be a part of it.

To my Bush Broad Babies:

Ladies, you ROCK. Keep doing what your doing and keep changing the world through changing it's attitudes and perceptions.
