A lot of vloggers are upset because they feel that the magazine was throwing shade towards YouTubers as a source of info for ladies who are on their natural hair journey.
I can actually see both sides of the debate. Of course every person can only speak from their experiences with their hair type/texture/state/etc. However, I would argue that that is the case for all forms of media (YouTube, blogs, forums, etc!). It is our job as consumers of this information to "weed out" what info is applicable to us and what info is not.
Do I think Essence was fair in telling their readers to beware of YT vlogger's while accepting only info from their site and NC.com? NO! But do I think that ladies on their HHJ (relaxed, natural, and otherwise!) should be wary of all advice/info given over the web? YES!
Have you ladies heard about this debate? Weigh in!! =)
