Learn why we created “Black Hair Is..” here: https://un-ruly.com/what-is-black-hair/ Special thanks to Smooth ‘N Shine for their support and for creating products for both kinky and straight hair. Check out their new product line: http://bit.ly/2EOagUh –*Read more below*—

IN THIS EPISODE: White women have curly and even kinky textures. Should they be included in the natural hair movement?

“Black Hair Is…” is a debate, led by six women with relaxed hair and six women with natural hair that explores ideas of what Black Hair should be and what it actually is, by looking at the divides that exist in our community.

We’re having this conversation now because although we’re in a moment when we’re embracing the possibilities of our hair and praising its versatility, certain hairstyles and hair choices are still being penalized.

Our goal for the series is to contribute to creating an environment that allows our differences and choices to stand on even ground.

We are super happy to have partnered with Smooth ‘N Shine to bring this to life.

    They wanna be apart of a movement that they don't even understand. They think it's "just about hair"

    I’m of European descent and have wavy/curly hair, and I don’t feel that the natural hair movement is mine to be a part of. That’s okay, I totally respect that we don’t have the same cultural perspective as black people do! At the same time, I have experienced some forms of texturism from caucasians. When I was (and still am) learning how to care for my hair, people (usually men) would be very obnoxious about the texture of my hair. I don’t really care about their motive, but it was something I noticed. As soon as it wasn’t straight, people had something to say. If I wore it straight, other people would comment that I looked so “professional.” Ive also heard good comments when I wear it curly, especially from other curly girls. I do want to thank the natural hair movement for leading the way for all textures to be accepted, even if there is a long way to go!

    white women embracing their curls is an embracement movement, black women embracing their hair is a movement that is a reflection of how society can start change to embrace and empower culture, on surface level they seem similar, but they are truly very different. it’s not about saying white people cant love their natural hair, it’s about recognising the difference, and that that difference is okay.

    I’m a white girl and I can never find hair care videos. They are all for black people.

    Are we just going to pretend like even amongst themselves black women do everything they can to look white on a far greater scale than the black women that love themselves? But white peoples aren’t supposed to point that out when y’all hate on white women and white features . Lol it’s laughable. Hair eyes skin nose that’s all things that no one told y’all to change but white people right.

    Have you noticed that blacker the person the less open they are to white people? I honestly believe black people are racist and paranoid about white people. All the mean girls in my school growing up we’re black girls.

    It’s also not fair for the women born with natural curly hair bc my dad made me get a perm to have my hair straight.

    The fact that this question needs to be asked is shit. We are all human. Saying that white girls can’t be in the movement is horrible bc it’s like saying a black girl can’t have straight hair. And I understand that black people have been through a lot, but all women have been there. I’m Native American though and we’ve had it way worse. Racism, slavery, scalping, tortured, raped, forced into marriage, poisoned, getting our land taken from us, etc. But nobody talks about that. And I’m not racist, I love black people more than most white people. But nowadays it’s offensive to wear a hairstyle that is “made” for a certain race. It would be the same if a white person put their hair in a braid like the native Americans’ did. It’s the same thing of a man wanted to have a women’s hairstyle. If anything these women shouldn’t be offended bc their culture is what influenced girls to do their hair like this. It’s not fair that just bc some women don’t want other women doing their hair like this they can’t. You shouldn’t be offended, we should.
