Since we love to talk about all things hair, and it is not every day that hair is a part of the news, we have decided to talk about natural hair discrimination and the passing of California’s Crown Actlaw.
Before we get into talking about this newly passed law, we should talk about what hair discrimination is.
Almost everyone with curly or coily hair has wished their hair was straight at one point in their life. Whether it was on a bad hair day that you had an important meeting or event, or on wash day when your arms start to tire from holding them up for hours.
Having textured hair is a constant inward tug-of-war battle. You love the volume and versatility of your hair, but you hate the hours it takes to do it.
The idea of cutting your hair is already terrifying. The idea of bringing scissors to the curls you work so hard to maintain -- even more terrifying.
However, skipping a trim or cut can cost you healthy locks. If you have a certain haircut, they are important because styles have to be maintained.
But more importantly, regular haircuts are the only way to get rid of those pesky split ends that are causing your ends to be fragile and frizz.
If you do not get a regular haircut to chop off your split ends your hair will not grow the way you want it to. Plus, if you feel like your hair looks frizzy or damaged, getting a haircut can help restore your healthy shine.
Even if you have curly hair you cannot skip a dreaded haircut, the deva cut (or curly cut) was born.
Would it break your heart to learn that a number of your favorite celebrities with supposed naturally long hair actually rock hair extensions instead? You would be super surprised at just how much you can transform your look with the right hair extensions. While some may carry tell-tale signs that scream "I'm fake!", there are others with very natural looks and high quality.
When it comes to picking a fresh haircut, your face shape is one of the most important things to consider! It is tempting to choose the coolest new or trendy cut, but if it doesn’t work with your face shape, you might not be in love after the cut is finished. Instead of searching the newest trends, try selecting a style that suits your face shape. Whether your face shape is more rectangular or square, oval, round, heart or oblong - the right cut will expertly frame and balance it while highlighting your best features.
“Let’s brush your hair!” - these are words that spark terror into the hearts of children...and honestly, can you blame them? Brushing out knots and tangles after a long day can be very painful, and is the last thing that a child or parent wants to do. The process is one full of tears, jerking away, and stern frustrations that simply repeats day after day.
