Please Leave Solange Knowles’ Hair Alone

Natural hair in the case of women of African descent when it’s not chemically straightened  comes in all varieties of curl patterns, textures ect. And depending on where you are in the world,  you either grew up loving it not thinking much about it or, maybe you experienced the need to wear it straight. We’re not getting into the debate of straight versus natural because that is an individual choice. What we do have to highlight is that there was a time not too long ago where very few , if any women of color were seen in the spotlight rocking their natural  curly/kinky hair.

While we love the sight of Solange Knowles, Esperanza Spalding, Macy Gray to name a few , think of how many times you’ve seen a big afro, in a courtroom, on a high level executive board or on a fortune 500 CEO? All this means is that minds have to get open a lot more for these occurrences to be commonplace and, mostly there cannot be debates on  texture decorum .Who made us judges of what another woman’s hair texture should look like? Move forward and style your fabulous hair  the way you want. #enough.
