Don't even answer that.
How can the hair that you were born with ever be considered"unprofessional"? Is straight hair the only texture that's "professional"? Mind boggling. Sad. Crazy.
FoxNews ran a story about the number of Black women who don't workout because they are worried about messing up their hair. I totally understand preferring relaxed hair and I know first hand how difficult it can be to exercise with a relaxer in your head, but come on...there's no need to apologize or explain why you're wearing your natural hair to your co-workers. It's just hair! As long as you wear a contained, modest style (or a wild one if you work in a creative field) then who cares about the texture? I WISH I would get fired for rocking a natural. PLEASE fire me because of my hair. (Y'all just don't know how much I wish I could get unfairly discriminated against or sexually harassed at work. $$$)
I couldn't help but cringe as I watched the black female news reporter in Chicago down playing her natural hair. "It does hold a curl, that's one good thing about it. The only good thing." Something like that, of course I paraphrased a little.
Then, Fox News presents Happy Nappy Hair Day @ Soul Salon Spa (this one I like)
I'm natural and even when I flat iron it, I know I'm going to end up natural again by the end of the work out. lol
