The most important thing I have ever lost was my pride and love for my natural beauty, especially my hair. Somewhere along the way, I lost my sense of value and admiration for my strands. With all the media messages that told me I didn’t have “good hair,” all the times my Mother ripped my hair out with a rat-tail comb and said it just wasn’t “manageable,” to all the hair relaxers that left me with sore spots on my scalp, it is time for change.
I figured the best place to start that change was both within myself, and through learning about my history. Specifically, the history of how African American hair has been represented both politically and socially in America. This blog is a documentation of my journey towards rediscovering my natural beauty and my history. I am on the path towards reclaiming myself and understanding the current state of African American hair. I can’t wait to share what I’m learning and experiencing. I hope you will join me and enjoy the ride.
