JUST HAIR

WHAT IS HAIR TO A BLACK GIRL?

Beyond status, hair is a means of self-expression — whether you prefer cornrows, box braids, bantu knots, updos, perms, hot presses, whatever it may be. How a black girl wears her hair can tell you a lot about who she is, where she comes from, where she’s going, how she’s feeling on a given day...It all says so much about who we are as individuals. 

Above all though, hair is extremely labor intensive. It truly doesn’t matter what hair texture or length you have. If you have Black hair, you’re gonna be spending obscene amounts of time on it. Simply washing your hair can take days if you’re a black girl. It’s essentially a part-time job that you never applied for.
