In a hairy world where most women are showing off their beautiful coils and versatile braid outs and showing off their journey of healthy natural hair via Instagram post and YouTube videos, it can get pretty lonely for a relaxed girl like myself. While different women around me were trading in their “creamy crack” for the big chop, I was setting up my next relaxer appointment. Just like the women around me going natural, so were the hair gurus I followed on social media. It seemed like every time I looked up, someone I followed specifically for relaxed hair care were either growing out their hair or chopping it off! Luckily, others noticed noticed a gap and began to start their own channels and pages. Below I have highlighted three awesome relaxed “hairlistas” to follow if you too got lost in the natural hair movement sauce!
Meagan aka ulovemegz on her Instagram and Youtube has been in the hair/beauty community for a very long time and has become a well-known beauty and hair influencer. She recently has gone natural as of last year but became known because of her waist-length relaxed hair and her relaxed hair care. She inspired girls and women with relaxed hair to know that relaxed hair cannot only grow but also can be healthy! She has gained followers from all over the hair community because of her consistent hair care routines and product reviews and tips.
