6 Reasons Why Black Women are Embracing Their Natural Hair

For most African American women, the first time they step into a hair salon is like a rite of passage. Pulling, teasing, straightening, relaxing, women have to go through it all to feel ‘beautiful’ or at least more accepted by white Americans. Thankfully, embracing one’s natural hair has become more and more normal and sought after by women of colour.

Here are 6 reasons why black women are embracing their natural hair.
