Interview Of Blogger, Writer And Hair Coach Tola Okogwu Who Is Crowdfunding To create Documentary About Hair Products For Black Women
Pretty sure you guys have seen Tola's BBC interview being shared on social media. She was discussing the harmful effects that hair products cause in black woman health and the importance of being more ingredient conscious. In a study, published in April 2018 by researchers from the Silent Spring Institute and Battelle Memorial Institute in the USA it was found that 80% of black hair products contain endocrine disrupting and asthma causing chemicals. Tola is now launching a crowdfunding campaign to finance a documentary called ‘My Haircare Nightmare’. The documentary will creatively explain the science behind the research and delve deeper into the societal and cultural pressures that lead black women to use these products. They will speak to real women and hear their hair stories.  The documentary will also provide expert advice and practical approaches to help Black women reduce their level of exposure to EDCs and asthma causing chemicals. We met with Tola for a quick, yet insightful chat.

Natural Hair Styling: The Only Industry Where You Expect Great Service Without Paying For It
 

Hi, my name is Simone (raises hand) and I am addicted to partings, braids, twists, combs, curls, waves, coils, kinks, accessories and all things Afro. This is one of the hardest pieces I have had to write because when it comes to Afro hair I can talk for days…seriously, I can but today I will spare you and try to be brief as we talk about the importance of RESPECT in this profession.

Amara La Negra: The Reason Why It Is Important To Promote Self Validation
2017 has been a year of harvest. I loved and was proud of Rai-Elle’s talent and look. Watching her on X-Factor felt warm and satisfying because seeing a young woman like her on the telly does not just happen.  It’s the fruit of tireless efforts and work around one main idea: normalising black features, in a society where, for a long time, one had to “tame” ones African phenotypes to fit in the “civilised western world”.

How I Learnt To Embrace My Short Natural Hair
I thought it would be interesting to share with you what I have been doing to embrace my natural hair during its short stage. I have been natural all my life, but my hair hasn't always been healthy. I'm not sure how old I was when my mum said I was old enough to do my own hair. It wasn't daunting or scary at all, that was only because I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
