When shopping at Target yesterday I picked up a copy of the February issue of Latina Magazine to read while I shop because the cover screamed "Rock Your Natural Hair!" I'm always curious and excited when women of color embrace themselves in any kind of way, so I wanted to know what tips they were giving.
I didn't end up purchasing the magazine because in the end, they weren't giving any actual information about how to rock your natural hair. There was a little section about how curly hair being back in style for the Spring '11 season and what (expensive) products to use to show off your curls. I was disappointed, although I'm not sure why I got my hopes up. At that moment, it made me wish for a magazine catering exclusively to natural hair. Something we can physically hold while we're shopping and make it mainstream and one that does not push really expensive products either. It was another one of those moments that made me say thank goodness for the blogs, but what about those who don't have access or may not know about them? Everyone still reads magazines. Imagine one that was for natural hair sitting right next to Cosmopolitan? How cool would that be? What do you guys think?
(And if there's already one out there, please let me know!)
