It's not a fad... My hair is beautiful!

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

As the hair care and beauty industry grows, so does the controversy surrounding black/ethnic and non-white hair. It has always been a global topic of discussion and subject of curiosity. However, at the start of this school year, it made headlining news and affected one of the world's most precious beings - children. In several states, and on one too many occasions, little girls have been either verbally reprimanded or told to leave school because of their "unacceptable" and "inappropriate" natural hair styles. In response to this controversy, TWELVE18 Media releases a very empowering Public Service Announcement sponsored by Aunt Jackie's Curls and Coils, encouraging young girls to love who they are AND the hair they are naturally born with. The PSA entitled "My Natural Hair Is Beautiful" addresses the messages that society and the media send to little girls about natural hair, presents the questions and insecurities they will inevitably be faced with, and offers a simple yet powerful and universal solution of non-judgmental acceptance.
