…Charting an empire the natural hair way
For most African women beauty is determined through social pressures solely on the basis of close to Caucasian one looks. It is for this reason that a lot of black African women feel the urge to either bleach their naturally tanned dark skin and chemically exhaust their black and kinky hair in an attempt to strengthen and lengthen it in order to look “better presentable” and as close to Caucasian as possible. There are however, a few Africans who prefer to keep it natural and original. Most of those who gather the bravery to keep it natural especially in the hair department are those who prefer to have their locks in dreads.
