I am writing this post in support of my friend, the best hairdresser I know, the owner of GlamGorgeous hair salon,  Gege. Every time I visit her she always teaches me something, sometimes about hair sometimes such a simple little wisdom. So I thought I really need to appreciate her and let you guys know how talented she is.

However, last time I visited her she taught me something extraordinary.

As she was in the process of beautifying me we got to talking about biracial hair and how I can make my daughter love her hair.

I was delighted to hear that there is a natural movement in the industry which means a lot of mixed race and black people are keen to learn about their hair and how to take care of it. She told me about how damaging it is when ladies use a chemical straightener to straighten their hair and why we should never do that to young people's hair.

I always knew that women feel like their hair is a “crowning glory" and their hair is even central to their social position. But I don't think I ever really understood what hair got to do with black women's identity.

After my visit at GlamGorgeous hairsalon in Manchester I made up my find to find out more. I did a bit of research and I found that some ladies straighten their hair because they believe that would give them an advantage in the world. It is like one less battle that would have to fight.

I have even read "For young black girls, hair is not just something to play with, it is something that is laden with messages, and it has the power to dictate how others treat you, and in turn, how you feel about yourself. "

I found this so interesting since I have biracial children myself and I want to equip them well for the future. I am glad to have realised the importance of natural hair early on so I can start my own "hair journey" or at least "hair education".

I would love to hear your opinion about this, dear reader. Please remember to comment below.
