Trendy to be natural?

Is it just trendy to be natural? I keep hearing more and more people talking about going natural, but only wearing it straightened. I am on Long Hair Care Forum now and I see a long thread about the same thing.  It makes me wonder is it a trend to be natural? It’s almost like some women (not all) just want to say they are natural. What alot of women don’t understand is that natural hair is fragile and putting heat on it consistently will only damage the hair–so might as well keep the relaxer in my opinion.It seems like alot of people are more concerned with retaining length versus healthy hair.  But I am wondering- is it a trendy thing..or do people honestly think it would be healthier to have natural hair and straighten it everyday? What are your thoughts?
