There are a lot of hair traditions we have in the black culture that we’ll always remember. I used to love sitting on the floor and letting my mom grease my scalp. It just felt so good!
One of the traditions I hated was standing next to the stove waiting for the hot comb to warm up. My mom would always put grease on right before, and it would pop once the comb hit my hair. It’s seriously by the grace of God that I even have hair today – haha.
Although some of these black hair traditions are those we will want to pass down to our children, many of them do not promote healthy hair.
In this week’s episode of Curly Conversations, I’m sharing 5 black hair traditions we need to let go of in order to have thriving, healthy hair.
