We celebrate and advocate the right for people of color to freely wear their hair as it naturally grows or in accordance with their personal choice.
The Facts of Today
Women of color report that their hair is the reason they haven’t exercised compared to 1/10 who naturally fit European norms.
All women suffer from anxiety surrounding hair ‘social norms’, however, women of color experience higher levels of anxiety due to implicit and explicit bias.
Women of color feel social pressure to straighten their hair for work — 2x as many women who naturally fit European norms.
