Hair love as self love

It’s taken me *so* many years to LOVE my hair.

Having absorbed our society’s (& thanks to the globalisation of advertising, now ‘the world’s’!) ‘only straight hair is beautiful’ narrative which tells me and others harmful lies…

Lies which say:

It’s not curly, it’s ‘wild’

It’s not thick it’s ‘untameable’

It’s not strong it’s ‘coarse’

And…above all: its ‘frizzy’ and must be ‘fixed’.

Fixed with silicone and paid for at a high cost to both our purses and our self-acceptance and love.

I call Bullshit!

I call my hair what it is & always has been: BEAUTIFUL.
