idk if i'd agree with your statement to that extent. that's reaching, but i'd argue for what one of the previous posters said, which is that it's all a matter of perception. if you merely want to group all chemically altered hair under the wide umbrella of 'non natural' then that's your prerogative but if we're merely arguing about what natural means generally when you say it to most black women/men on the street, most are going to tell you it simply means hair that is relaxer free. 

then you have the sects that'll include texturizers.
then you'll have those that throw in heat trainers...
then you'll have those that'll toss up hair-dyers..
and baking soda users...
and twistouters and braidouters...etc. 

and then you see how this quickly devolves into something totally laughable.

and speaking as one who has dyed and bleached her hair plenty before, i can promise you that so long as you're not outright bleaching your hair, the only change you're going to be apt to note about your hair post dye is possibly that it'll feel drier. bleaching carries the potential of texturizing, though only mildly so. but basic dyes don't pose this threat to the same extent. i for one didn't notice any change in texture that altered it on the scale of your analogy. for this reason i'd hardly compare dying one's hair to texturizing/relaxing, as these are two completely different chemical processes both in the end result as well as the means by which they alter the hair.

I seriously love this post! I have been walking around for the pat week with this exact thought in my head. Too many people are natural but still have the relaxed state of mind

I do find it a little weird when girls are measuring their hair straight or stretched, should it be in it's curly, kinky, or coily state. I mean that is it in it's true length, since their hair is not naturally straight?

Its not really weird......everyone has a different curl speed which means their shrinkage is different....for comparison purposes to measure on a level field it makes sense to straighten it.......and if your chasing length you would want all of your inches......

I'm having this relaxed state of mind lately. My hair seems to have changed and my twist outs don't look as good any more. I can't do high buns because of my edges. It looks bad. I'm gonna cover it up with a weave while leaving the edges out for a while until I figure out what to do with my natural hair. I used to be so happy with my natural but lately I've been dissatisfied. Relaxing is still out of the question though because of my edges.
