    Yes, especially for women with afro-textured hair. I have been natural for 6 years. I now only use organic products on my hair.

    long twist out

    This girl is super cute, but she's not me. My hair is very similar though.

    For some women, Yes, I think it can be a form of Liberation. New found confidence in a new found suitable look. But for me , meh don't know, just happy having a good hair day. And I don't really change my hair much, so I wouldn't know.

    It can be but anyone who actually BELIEVES that is Oprah's "natural hair" is blind.

    Not for me anyway. I already have it the simplest it can be without it being short. If I were to try a new style then it would just frustrate me to no end. I'm just not very savy with hair stuff.

    Especially for black women since we are constantly bombarded with media messages that we have to wear a weave or relax our hair to be considered beautiful.

    I keep my hair short because of the low maintenance factor, but it was liberating when I first went from having long hair my whole life to getting it chopped down to where I could actually see my head. I grew up in the 70's and everybody had long hair, I mean long, so I never thought I would end up cutting it all off. It feels so good to not have to mess with it every day.

    If you feel liberated changing your hair, well, good for you and your lack of marbles. What I find liberating is the ability to think. I don't need any pseudo symbolic gestures to feel liberated.

    why do women change hair styles, hair colors, etc? Few men do either

    By the way how does Oprah fit that thing thru doorways?

    Had hair almost down to my butt, cut it to my shoulders. When that got old, I shaved one side. After that It went to a mohawk, and from mohawk it became a pixie cut. Beautiful thing about cutting your hair- it always grows back!

    For some years women of color have been trying to wear their hair relaxed but it's liberating to see so many women of color wearing their natural hair. You look beautiful Oprah in your natural hair! Change feels good and liberating! :))

    it's hair we're just covered in it to varying degrees. I mean you can cut it and dye it and shave it, but it always comes back because that's what it does.....

    I don't think there is anything natural about that photo. Her hair sure isn't. It has been done up by professionals, her make-up is also done to make her look anything but natural. If she wanted to feel liberated and natural then she should do so without the aid of professional stylists and make-up people. AND stop putting herself on the cover of her magazine each month. That is truly vain.

    Natural hair, as in no chemicals. It is natural. I wear mine natural and I love it. Nobody was talking about who styled it or whether she's wearing make-up.
  • L K MsTlynne 2012/08/03 19:20:46

    I get that. But, she is so made up that it is hard to imagine anything natural about the photo. I have seen Oprah running or exercising on TV and she is looks natural and just fine. I also think that more women should wear curly hair in its natural state since it is lovely on it's own and doesn't need to be straightened. Society is wrong to make every woman think they have to have straight hair. I have biracial grandchildren and they have gorgeous hair. Lots of beautiful curls! I just find Oprah a little self obsessed these days. So it is hard for me to take her seriously anymore. I liked her a lot better years ago when I felt she was more passionate about her causes and wasn't so wealthy. She seemed more real to me back then. Just my opinion.

    I can't findy anything about Oprah worth of criticism.
