In a world where European hair has been glorified and glamorised so much so that in some countries African and black women are fired from work and expelled from schools for not emulating the visual representation of white women, the journey to go natural is so bleak and far hidden in a dark corner that it is swarmed with flying rumours to those who haven’t ventured there.
With the rise of social media, we can steadily see an increase in natural hair amongst black women as they reconnect with their pride by reconnecting with others that proudly wear their hair natural.
