The Voice of the Black Community




I am a 75 year old woman of African decent, who have had long hair most of my life. Foolishly, people have asked where I've from, as well as if I have Indian heritage. People have also mistakenly put their hands in my hair. I AM SO MUCH MORE THAT HAIR. I am an Africian American woman!
I was taught in college that biologically ALL hair grow a certan length each month. It is the dryness that breaks the hair. Since moving to Charlotte, I've found only two beauticians that condition my hair properly. Between salon visits I wash and condition my own hair.
Additionally, our hard earned money could be used for more than nails and hair! Good Luck to you on your Journey.

Quite interesting cause I have given up on my hair and now wear wigs, weaves or braids. Had long hair before but have done everything to it over the years and now that I need it long, it stays the same. I am of African origin and have natural kinky African hair that doesn't grow anymore. Can you advise? I am up there in age also. Thanks
