Oprah Winfrey tweeted the cover photo for her September "O" magazine which always features herself on the cover. I like all the mag covers and the articles that will be featured for the month. The September issue was intriguing as it showed Oprah wearing her natural hair which looks fabulous.
As many readers may have been reading that a lot of African-American women have stopped getting their hair chemically-relaxed which straightens the roots to reveal a sleek and straight look to the hair. I ditched the chemicals going on 2 years now and it was the best decision. Oprah Winfrey has a personal stylist who takes very good care of her hair.
During gymnast Gabby Douglas' magnificent Olympic gold wins last week, some Twitter comments were coming in mentioning her hair which was pulled back in a bun. The sweat from all the twists and turns may have given her hair an unruly look. There was a backlash as many people thought the comments were inappropriate.
My scalp feels 100% better from not having the chemical treatments applied to my scalp to straighten the roots. Even on days when my hair looks a lot like Oprah's on the cover, I can tame it with a flat iron which reminds me so much of the old school "straightening comb" my grandma used on my hair at the kitchen stove. I'm living & loving my natural hair!
