As I was doing research for the new blog I began to think about the attitude of people in the US toward African American natural hairstyles such as dreads, locs, twists, etc. And, I also wondered about the attitude of black people in Africa toward natural hair. What are their hair trends? So, I set out in search of answers (which I found rather difficult to uncover I might add).
I thought this blog would be a good place to discuss those attitudes. In the coming days I will be posting a series of articles, photos and videos illustrating the attitudes toward natural hair from both the African and African American perspective. I hope that in the end I can help people to gain a better understanding and foster some dialogue on the topic.
We are more than our hair.
