Two sisters simply fed up with the lack of representation of 4c hair
Systematically, women like my sister and I (and probably you, if you’re reading this) have been excluded from conversations around beauty and under-represented in mainstream media.
Despite our cumulative 40+ years toting the hair growing from our scalps, it wasn’t until very recently, that we even begun to explore our natural hair. The imagery we are bombarded with on a daily basis doesn’t regularly highlight, or even acknowledge, the gigantic (and ever growing) population of black women with hair like ours, and that takes a toll on our self-image.
We felt a transformation in ourselves, as we began to explore and proudly rock our 4c naps–and we wanted to share that feeling with as many 4c women as we could. Our goal is to be a source of information, tools, and community. For any girl who’s ever felt hair-shamed, pressure to alter / manipulate their curl pattern, or just wants to see more representation—this is for you.
