Why You Need to Stop Throwing Shade at Your Natural Hair

Throwing shade as in = Making Negative comments about your natural hair.

Well it’s time to stop the natural hair negativity. It’s not helpful to your journey and God is certainly not pleased with us disrespecting what He’s given to us.

My crown is so rebellious

My curls never cooperate

I have bad hair

My hair is thinning

My hair is so stringy

I hate my hair

Well what if you didn’t have A-N-Y H-A-I-R at all????

Stop Making Negative Confessions About Your Natural Hair

It doesn’t really matter if you choose to wear your hair in its natural state or flat ironed every day (well yeah, that does matter but that’s a topic for another discussion). If you are throwing negative comments toward your natural hair you aren’t helping yourself one bit.

No no no. Stop those negative confessions. You WILL have what you say. And, that’s not just my opinion either.

Speak How You Want Your Hair To Be

The Bible tells us clearly in no uncertain terms: “Life and death is in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)

Start speaking what you want your hair to be. “Call those things that be not as though they were.” That’s what scripture says in Romans 4:16. No, it’s not talking about your natural hair but it’s talking about “things.” All things.

Do you think that only applies to some parts of life? No! that’s every part of your life. God is concerned about every part of you from the tips of your hair down to your tippy tippy toes!

Consider Your Words

If you aren’t seeing the hair you want or just any improvement in your hair at all, stop and consider what you are saying about your hair. Just like what you see in your life right now is a result of what’s been spoken into it, the same goes for what you speak over your head of hair. So, if you don’t like what you see, hair or otherwise, change your speech.

It doesn’t matter.

I was reminded of this very fact when I shared in one of my YouTube videos how I have bad skin. A sister in the Lord reminded me too stop saying that. Thank God for her. I know better but definitely needed the reminder.

We all need reminders sometimes because we often take our eyes off the “prize” and look at our circumstances, thereby reinforcing them with our words.

Now I’m passing the torch…
Let’s start speaking life to our hair.

  1. I was feeling so down on myself today about my profound hair loss and I cried (literally) unto the Lord for his help and found myself here. I thank God for his goodness and using you as a vessel that speaks truth and hope to sisters like me.

    1. Hi Njayha, I’m so sorry you are feeling down on yourself. Do you know what’s causing the hair loss? I know how important hair is to us women. Some people say things like “It’s just hair” but they aren’t having any trouble with theirs. It’s a part of who we are as women and it’s OK to cry out to God about it. He can help you to take good care of it as well as give you wisdom on what to do to grow it back. And if it’s something that the doctors say can’t be grown back, then we know that God, the Father is a miracle working God and he can heal your scalp and whatever else has caused you to lose hair. I invite you to join my monthly Youtube live prayers. We are actually going to move to Zoom so we can interact much closer but the next and final live prayer will be on Youtube on Saturday June 4th at 9am ET.
