Celebrating Natural Hair

More and more African women, particularly black women, have stopped chasing conventional beauty sold by the media and started to embrace their natural hair rather than straighten it. American storyteller, Cheyenne Cochrane says this calls for a celebration.

 

Cochrane “explores the role that hair texture has played in the history of being black in America, from the heat straightening products of the post-Civil War era to the thousands of women today who have decided to stop chasing a conventional beauty standard and start embracing their natural hair.” On TED Talks she says, “This is about more than a hairstyle.” and tells others that a celebration of natural hair is “about being brave enough not to fold under the pressure of others’ expectations.”
