As the natural hair movement and community has grown the conversation around texture discrimination and accurate representation has increased.
LAMBB – Lookatmyblackbeauty.com a platform that celebrates black beauty has created a documentary titled ‘Kinks and Curls’ to encourage the conversation and to share the experiences of black women and their hair.
As I actively get involved in conversations and topics that I can relate to. Texture discrimination and representation being some of the topics I voice my opinions on.
It’s a pleasure to be apart of this conversation, I wrote a piece for LAMBB – There Is More Than One Way to Embrace Your Natural Haircut. As much as the natural hair movement has come a long way the lack of diverse representation of naturalistas means naturals aspire to one certain look.
Get involved in the conversation using the hashtag #KinksandCurls on Twitter.
Let me know what you think about the natural hair community? Is there a real problem? Does texture representation really matter?
