The online natural hair movement has been around for 20 years now. Natural hair has been one of the Pinterest Top Trends for quite some time. Taking root in the 90s with trailblazing forums and sites like CurlTalk, Nappturality and MotownGirl, it has blossomed into a digital and real-world natural hair community that is attracting an ever larger share of young black women. And heading into 2017 it’s still going strong. More and more women are opting for natural hair styles and products.
