Quick Post: Oprah’s Hair Stylist Believes All Kinky Hair Should Be Chemically Altered

This is just a quick post on something that has come up in the last few days in the natural hair community.

Elle July 2011

In Elle magazine July 2011 Issue, Page 102 features an article from Oprah’s main hair man Andre Walker. The last paragraph of the first column states:

“Kinky hair can have limited styling options; that’s the only hair type that I suggest altering with professional relaxing.”

Now from a professional i was shocked to see this view of what he calls ‘kinky’ hair as i and many of us have seen an array of different and beautiful hair styles with natural curly hair. He also goes on to suggest using a Brazilian or Keratin smoothing method during the transition phase of growing out a relaxer! All you have to do is watch youtube to find many women who have transitioned without this method.

This post is just to tell you girls out there that when you are on your healthy hair journey, keep positive and make yourself happy as you will always have people trying to stop your flow and tell you on a bad day to just relax your hair or to give up on your healthy hair journey. It is not positive advice and us as women need to tell who is having a positive influence on our thoughts and those who are not. Because even the most well paid stylist to the stars will give misleading information on how to care for our beautiful hair.

Do Not Remove The Kinks From Your Hair, Remove Them From Your Mind!!

Have a great day ladies

  1. His comment really shows how misinformed stylists are. It’s so sad how little we know about our own hair.

      Most definitely, we need to share positive information between each other and raise awareness not misinform people. Thank you for you comment honey x
