The Importance of Hair for Women of Color

As women of color, we often have a very difficult and challenging journey and experience with our hair for many reasons — the fundamental reason being white supremacy and racism. Instead of celebrating our hair, reveling in its connection to our culture and to feeling both authentic and beautiful, so many of us feel pushed to change our hair or to protect and defend it.

And yes, I know that with everything we’ve seen happening throughout this racial injustice crisis moment talking about hair and what you do with it may seem superficial, but hair has huge significance for so many of us as women of color, as it is deeply tied to our cultural identities.

In this video, I talk about why we must interrupt the biases around hair and beauty that impact women of color.
