"SIMPLY THE BEST IN HAIR CARE"
SLAVERY IN AMERICA
Before Dark & Lovely, the pressing comb, or the North Atlantic slave trade,Africans celebrated the richness and beauty of their natural hair.Using mud, clay and butters and decorative combs, beads and shells, black women took great pride in creating impressive hairstyles--which many would classify as high art. In pre-slavery Africa, a woman's hairstyle marked important life events, such as puberty , marriage or the birth of a new child.Her hair was also inevitably tied to her identity and reflected her age, social status, religion and tribal affiliation.
A majority of young black women believe that they must wear their hair straight in order to succeed socially and professionally, there's clearly a problem.Fortunately, we can understand how these beliefs have evolved and come to have so much power over us.Then we can choose to abandon them and celebrate the beauty and power that is truly our birthright!
MY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL
Black women are among the most beautiful women in the world,yet society has sought to conceal this obvious fact for centuries. This is the time of month for us to embrace our roots, and appreciate our BEAUTIFUL natural hair!
As we continue to learn about ourselves, we can better apppreciate the impact that historical events have had our perceptions of identity,especially as it relates to hair.Once we accept our natural texture for what it is, we can more freely embrace the true beauty that lies within.
