From being ashamed of our 'nappy hair' to being told that we have 'good hair' because we have loose curls, black women and men alike have always had a complex relationship with our hair. Do you stay away from pools and gyms because you don't want to mess up your hair? Do you wear weaves because your natural hair is to 'hard to manage?'
