1.  Your hair is unique

If you take a closer look at your natural hair, you’ll see that it contains a combination of shades that no other person has. No matter the color of your hair, it will never entirely match another person’s hair. Even those with black hair will attest that there are different shades of black hair too. Some just look very dark brown. Some look as dark as the jet black night.

If you get your hair treated and colored at a salon, it will look exactly the same as the people who got treated and colored at the same salon too. Would you really give up your unique hair just to look like everybody else?

2.  Your hair is versatile

It’s easy to get versatile with your hairstyles when you’ve got natural hair. Don’t believe me? Try asking someone with chemically straightened hair to try curling their strands. They’d probably tell you that it’s not allowed, because it generally isn’t.

But if you’ve got natural hair, you have none of these concerns. You can rock curly hair today and straight hair the next morning, no problem. You can do updos, dutch braids, twists, buns, and all sorts of hairstyles with your hair with no problem at all.

Chemically treated hair, on the other hand, can’t be played around with like this. Not only are they more fragile, but they also tend to retain damages for a long time too.

3.  Your hair can save you money

When you start chemically treating your hair, it’s almost impossible to stop. That’s because you don’t want your hair to go back to the way it was when you first started chemical treatments, right?

But the thing is, getting treatments over and over again can get really expensive, really fast. Even if you decide to go the DIY route, you’d still have to spend a considerable amount of money. With natural hair though, you only have to spend money on your regular hair care regimen, and that’s it.  Honestly, the amount of money you can save is pretty substantial.

4.  Your hair can save you time

Although having natural hair doesn’t mean you don’t need to do maintenance, it does require relatively less maintenance than chemically treated hair. Did you know that depending on the length of your hair, rebonds and blowouts can take anywhere from 5-8 hours? Hot oil and hair cellophane treatments also take 30-60 minutes each.

This means you actually save a lot more time if you keep your hair au naturel. After all, instead of spending a lot of time getting your hair treated and doing follow-up treatments, you can do a lot more things with your time.

5.  Your hair exudes confidence

Natural hair automatically exudes confidence like none other. We can’t explain it, it just does. For some reason, going out knowing that your hair looks amazing without being chemically treated can do wonders for your confidence levels.

6.  Your hair inspires other people

There’s certainly nothing wrong with getting your hair chemically treated, but wouldn’t it be cool too if we just let our hair be?

While we all love perming, straightening, and coloring our hair, we have to say that seeing someone do natural hair is really very inspiring. It makes us just want to go back in time and let nature do its work!

7.  Your hair is stronger than ever

If you like swimming in the pool or in the ocean, dancing in the rain, or staying too long in the shower, you’ll probably benefit more from not getting your hair chemically treated hair at all.

Whether it’s rain, snow, or wind, nature is one of the biggest issues of chemically treated hair. Just a little wind and it gets extra frizzy, just a little rain and it can dry out completely. Talk about a hassle! Natural hair is much stronger than chemically treated hair, that’s for sure.

8.  Your hair is at its healthiest state

Why is hair care important, you ask! Well, it’s no secret that getting your hair chemically treated can cause permanent damages to your strands. These include breakages and split ends, among many others.

Ask any woman who’s ever had their hair chemically treated and they’ll tell you that their hair was much more fragile after the treatment than before. Personally, I can tell you that my hair became more prone to frizz after I had it rebonded. I literally had to use tons of conditioner every time I was in the shower just to make sure that my hair was getting enough hydration.

9.  Your hair teaches you self-love

Loving your natural hair is the same thing as self-love. By loving your hair, you’re also loving yourself, since your hair is a big part of you.

Regardless of what your hair looks like, it’s important to love it and care for it the way you would a good friend. Learn which cuts look good with your hair. Experiment with new hairstyles. Do your best to build a good regular hair care regimen that you can stick to. Your hair is you, so don’t forget to give it its much-deserved love and TLC!

10. Your hair defines you
