Relaxed or natural? Jill Scott


Jill Scott has been an inspiration for naturals over the years.  However, did she assume this role or was it pushed upon her?  Her new relaxed look was met with criticism from some people in the natural hair community.    Many of us feel strongly about this subject and speak passionately about it.  However, everything needs a healthy balance and at times we need to remember that our hair is only a small aspect of who we are. I personally prefer the natural look on Jill but that’s simply my opinion. She is free to do with her hair whatever she likes.  She did say in an  interview with Afrobella last year that she was never trying to be a spokeswoman for natural hair. It’s important to remember that.  She can go back to being natural anytime and I’m sure she hasn’t ruled it out.

What do you think? Relaxed or natural? Do you think the criticism she faced was warranted?
