Commentary on an article about Nigerian women and their perception of natural hair. Interesting read. Read the original article at http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/16/curls-nigerian-women-straight
While on the internet I came across an article by Monica Mark written for the Guardian Newspaper called Curls allowed? No say Nigerian women. Click here for the link to the original article. Being Nigerian myself it immediately caught my attention. We often talk about the challenges black women face living in a western society. Growing up in the UK, I soon came to realise what was considered beautiful and what was not. Of course women of all races grow up with insecurities but it certainly didn’t help when every time you turned on the TV or opened a magazine there were very few representations of girls or women like yourself.
