"Bad Hair" Rehab-Need Help!
While at another office location for about a month, I was talking with some ladies about curly hair among other things. One was amazed that I was allowed to wear my hair "natural" and still be able to be promoted in the company. (I still don't see the connection with natural hair being worn professionally and promotion stifling...
Anyway...she said that she was raised that only people with "good hair" can wear it natural and she didn't like that attitude about herself. So, she wants me to help her get over this...like "rehab". She is serious! She doesn't like to wear wigs, relax or straighten her hair, (especially since she is bald in one spot) but she feels she has to in order to keep her job.
She even calls it a "curse", and thought about trying to get "straight hair" implants! Whew!
I asked her to let a small portion of her hair "go back" instead of relaxing so that I can see her "curl pattern". Then we'd start from there.
Ladies, I'd appreciate any advice
to help her. Transitioning is one thing, but to believe that your hair is a "curse" is something else...
