Looooook, yáll know that we keep it positive over here at BlackHairOMG, so don't think from the title of this blog that we are going to focus on negative things.
This very interesting and compelling video by little-know YouTuber named sophielovexo (subscribe to her) is actually very positive because it is encouraging dialogue.
You ever wondered why the word "nappy" is seen as a negative?
Well, that's one of the first questions she asks in her very calm and well thought-out video addressing what she sees as problems in the natural hair community. Especially on Instagram and Youtube.

And The Kinky Hair Crowd ROARS!
I almost didn't post this video because of its title, but seeing how much of a positive reaction Sophie got in the comment section, I felt this was a message that many of us can relate to.
Here's an example of one of the comments....
"FACTS ON FACTS ON FACTS!!! I’m not sure how I discovered your channel but I’m glad I did( new subscriber!) . Just from this video alone not only were you spilling tea but you had receipts (in the forms of tweets,video clips, articles, etc)
I feel like I have nothing to add because you covered everything. At least now when I get into an argument/debate about this I can send this & go about my day. This video was so well done."
So I want you all to check it out and you all know that the BlackHairOMG family shows LOVE, so if you are feeling her video and message, subscribe to the sistas channel, she's trying to get to 10,000 subscribers.
And tell her BlackHairOMG sent you!
VIDEO: Why I hate The Natural Hair Community!
Here's another comment that was totally agreeing with and loving the message....
"First off, I totally agree with you on this. The only time a blogger with 4C hair gets love is when he/she makes their 4C hair look like something other than 4C hair. BUT... that's our fault. The problem is that those in the natural hair movement want to be inclusive, to a fault.
The movement was started by 4C black women who were tired of having their natural hair rejected and were tired of being pressured by society to manipulate and change their hair to the point of damaging it..."
