How Important Is Hair Length To You On Your Natural Hair Journey?

This is going to sound like blasphemy to many in the natural hair community, but I really don’t care how long my hair is. Seriously. I’ve been natural since before the web was invented and I can honestly tell you, I really don’t care.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against ladies who track their hair’s progress by checking their locks’ length now and again.

I also don’t have anything against long hair. I definitely think that natural hair needs special attention, but so does the rest of my body and being that my hair grows from my body, I don’t think about one without the other. I think that’s why I’m not worried about...

Lee's Article Highlights:

  • Although overall this is a well-written article, I can't agree with a lot of it. Maybe there are a few "special" cases of women who desire short hair, but it's not normal. Just like some men may want to be short instead of tall, they'd be the exception to the rule.
  • I do recognize that the overall gist of the article is that the health of your natural hair is more important than its length. That I can wholeheartedly agree with, but it's not an "either or" situation.
  • The author highlights that the health of your scalp is just as important if not moreso than your ends because it’s what your hair grows out of, a great point, much more focus needs to be placed on scalp health.

What do you think? Is your hair length very important to you or is it no big deal? Comment below and let me know.
