I am not a curly girl myself, but I have one little curly girl whose hair is a big deal around here. Priscilla has super thick and tight curls which require a lot of maintenance, so it’s necessary to keep in protective styles like cornrows and twists. Many women with her hair type have relaxers or straighten their curly hair, but I see many more these days following the “natural hair movement.” Now, I am no expert on Black hair care. If you have a transracial family like mine, reading Black beauty and hair care bloggers is a must! (Curly Nikki, Discovering Natural)
I may be awful at cornrows and have had many hairstyle fails over the past two years, but one thing is most important: to help Priscilla be proud of her curly hair. Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful and only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair. I believe these statistics have to do with the media defining for society what is considered beautiful. I try to counteract that by filling our house and lives with movies, books, toys and dolls that feature curly girls like my daughter. And of course, we tell her how beautiful her hair is!
