Overcoming relaxer-induced alopecia and learning that the hair loss condition affects an astonishing 73% of African American women, motivated me to use my IT expertise to improve the health of Black women’s follicles and highlight the social injustice behind the numbers.

About

With the ultimate goal to change the perception of natural hair, I published Going Natural; How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair, created Going-Natural.com, AmericasNextNaturalModel.com, BadHairUprooted.com, and WhatNaturalsLove.com.

Please be my guest, join me as I am shooting for justice, aiming for equal hair rights, one headshot at a time.
Your comments, likes, and shares are much appreciated.
