EP-23 Fro talk: A natural hair journey
Most times doing a big chop isn't optional from many black women. We were once conditioned to a certain standard of beauty which was straight, long hair and for many of us, that meant we had to put chemicals in our hair to achieve that look. For years, damaging our true roots to fit into this standard was normal, thank God we had an evolution. Why did you do your big chop? Was it to cut out your perm? Cut off damaged brittle hair or just a fresh start to a healthy hair journey? How did you feel after your big chop? Did you lose confidence? Did you feel "ugly"? For many of us, we had to grow into our natural beauty and that journey of accepting our true textures, un-manipulated was a challenge. Listen to me and my special guest Guilia, also known as "The Curly Flower" and Ray Calloway from the Black Girl Daily talk our natural hair journey including our big chop experience, confidence, discrimination in relationships/ the workplace, our regimens and how we came to love our natural roots.
