I stumbled onto a Youtube video earlier today entitled: “Fake Naturals & Protective Style Slaves” with a naturalista politely vlogging about what she thinks a “real natural” is.  In the video she states a “real natural” should be someone who doesn’t hide behind protective styles consistently or

She donned herself initial as the “unnatural queen” before she went natural herself and poses the question “Are you a real natural?” This topic has been traveling around  the natural hair community relentlessly so we over at Trials N” Tresses thought it may be time to tackle/ share our opinions on this staple question in the natural hair community: “Are you a real natural” or “What makes a real natural”

Check out our thoughts below & the original video as well. What are your thoughts on the topic of being a “real natural”. Share your thoughts below!
