The Waterfall French Twist on "Natural Hair" | Bobby Pin Demo

Here's the second easy french twist technique for the series! This is method is super easy and really cute. I call it " The Waterfall French Twist!"

I've also received lots of requests to do a Bobby Pin demo, explaining how I get bobby pins to stay put in my thick hair, so I hope this helps!

I was on another site called Blackhairmedia.com and they did an interview with a lady named Rochelle Mosley of Salon 804. I personally never heard of her but I'll copy and paste a passage from the interview. Let me know what you guys think.

Here's the passage: "SR: You are probably familiar with the natural vs. relaxed war. Who wins?

RM: Hands down relaxer wins. Women wear their hair natural and realize that they aren’t getting the same (type of) attention. I am rocking bald and I am attracting this Rastas! When they realize they aren’t attracting what they like they go back to the relaxer. Oh, and it’s not necessary to go Afrocentric! Both have pros and cons. A relaxer, in my opinion, is easier to maintain than natural hair. With natural hair it’s about texture and the texture is “the look”. It’s more of a look than a style. It’s hard to find that balance.

I left a comment that is still awaiting moderation here's my response:

I think this is a very ignorant statement unless of course she is joking but I don’t think she is joking. For all you natural ladies out there, keep in mind this is a woman who makes her living on doing weaves and relaxers. In addition, it doesn’t appear that she really knows anything about natural hair and may be a bit intimidated by the natural hair movement. My own personal experience and the experience from many women who go natural is that they are sick of shelling out close to $100 dollars a month on a relaxer/color/or weave. Not to mention scalp burns, hair thinning, and breakage. Quite frankly, who knows the long term effects of relaxers on our health. As far as styles for natural hair, you only have to go to Youtube and see the versatility of styles and how to care for natural hair. She has to be living in a bubble to think otherwise. Furthermore, her statement “when they realize they aren’t attracting what they like they go back to the relaxer”. What is she talking about?. Ever since I went natural, the last thing I want to do is go back to the relaxer. As far as attention, I get more positive attention from my natural hair than when I was wearing weaves, lacefront wigs, and extensions over my damaged scalped burned hair due to 30 plus years of relaxers. What she doesn’t know will fill a book. I wouldn’t support such a person who has such a low opinion of natural hair. She basically thinks its unattractive and hard to deal with. I thought we were getting pass this backward notion…but that hate train is never late

First of all, I didn't know there was a war between relaxers vs. natural. I personally didn't get the memo, but, for the record, I think you have the right to wear your hair any way you want whether it is natural or otherwise. In saying that where does this woman get off. This is coming from someone who is supposed to be a professional and has a book out on how to do your hair. If you have a chance, go to the website Blackhairmedia.com and check out the whole interview. Maybe i'm over reacting, but I couldn't believe how ignorant this woman came off in the interview. Please comment on the article. I don't want to be the only one who felt compelled to take on her ridulous statement.
