So, I had this crazy idea to start a blog that celebrates the beauty, versatility and elegance of Black hair.
I was actually inspired by my own natural hair journey, which began when I chopped off all of my weak, over-processed hair on Nov. 28, 2006, and discovered, in the aftermath, that there were very few images of long, natural Black hair for me to aspire to. Not on TV, not in magazines, not on the runway, not even among Black female celebrities.
So, I figured I’d get images of my own. I thought, what if I ask everyday women to send me pictures of them ROCKIN their natural hair… whether it be locs, twists, cornrows, afros, whatever. What if we can just inspire each other, instead of depending on the media to do it for us?
Hence this blog… I want it to be a place where Black women gather to drool over images of their own texture… and be encouraged by its beauty and versatility.
