Recent talks of the natural hair community being biased against certain women confirms my thoughts about natural hair meet ups. They just aren't for me. While congregating with like minded individuals is a great, the physical characteristics of one's hair isn't a good enough reason to come together in my opinion. Too often the natural hair community focuses on new products, curl definition and intricate hairstyles. It does little to help the greater issues and struggles of the women who attend but deal with superficial woes. I would love to see more women congregated, sharing stories, triumphs, and tribulations as women. Meet ups are a great starting point, but the finish line as far away.
