Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of the books the natural hair Bible and founder of and for these videos I love to answer the questions you all send me via email so any of you have any questions you would like to need to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information so that you get right on into the video it's a day this video is inspired by email I received from Porsha, Porsha emailed me because she was me to give her some pros as to why natural hair is better than relaxed hair she want also to further explain that she's done her research on both types of hair and she's come to the realization that they both have their own set of rules and regimens so she just wants me to give her some pros on why I think natural hair is better than relaxed hair so Porsha I’m glad that you sent me that email because I'm going to give you three pointers as to why I think natural hair is better than relaxed your so the first thing that I want to mention is that with natural hair you do not need a relaxer treatment to maintain it over relaxed here you do need to use the relaxer to maintain the hair and also according to the FDA to date relaxer treatments received one of the highest complaints from consumers alongside of hair coloring treatments or hair dyes so this is a problem with in the cosmetic industry in a sense that this product is causing a lot of problems for consumers and customers so this is not for majority of people because there are a lot of people who have much much success with relaxing her hair but this is a highly complained about products so if your health is of great concern for you and you really want to make sure they are now using chemicals that can harm you or hurt you or hurt your hair then in this specific case I would say the natural hair is better than relaxed hair to make sure they you are not putting chemicals on your hair that you would necessarily need to maintain the look of your style the second thing that I am going to mention is that natural hair and relaxed hair is all about preference if you like your hair to be chemically straightened and then do what's best for you if you feel like you're able to maintain it better able to make sure to keep up with your protein treatments and your moisturizing treatments and keep up with your touchups and everything then that will work out better for you maybe than natural hair with natural hair takes maybe a little bit longer to detangle maybe you need to incorporate more moisture into your hair but there's pros and cons to both so in this situation or case for whatever applies to you I will suggest that you do what is best for your hair me personally I like to have my hair natural I used to have my hair relaxed for the past and it caused me a lot of issues because I have a very sensitive scalp I used to have problems with eczema on my scalp when I was a young girl so when I would get relaxer treatments it where it hurts so bad and the pain didn't go away even as I got older and trust me I made sure to put my base on my scalp the petroleum jelly that comes with the kit and things like that because I would normally get it done out of my home so it wasn't an easy task for me to continue to relax my hair and maintain the health of my hair as well as the health of scalp so in a situation it was best for me to make a personal decision to go natural with my hair and just accept my hair and manipulate my hair and do things to my hairs what it was naturally growing out of my scalp now for the next person they may feel as though is better for them to manage their hair relaxed me I just can't get over the fact that my scalp was so sensitive and I just couldn't handle the relaxer treatments but for other people is a lot better is a lot better for them despite detangling and different other things that I've mentioned so Im gald you sent me the email because I know a lot of you wonder like do I actually have to go natural do I have to go natural to because you always see my do styles on my hair given the fact that is natural and you don't have to you don't have to do all the styles on natural hair I'm just showing you that you can do whatever you want your natural hair so Im glad you sent me that email and for all of you watching I want you to leave me some comments below why you think natural hair is better than relaxed hair or vice versa why you think relaxed hair is better than natural hair so thank you all for watching and before you go make sure to check out my email is to sign up make sure to check out my description box to sign up for my email list because only their you will receive exclusive content so until then I'll see you all in my very next video
