Many mothers nowadays are handing down a new legacy of self-acceptance and teaching their daughters to embrace their natural hair.
Sistahs have been raving online about the new “beautician in a jar” Photogenic
. This all-in-one moisturizer/sealer/styling gel works on all hair types (curly, kinky, permed, naturally straight, etc.), but the most dramatic effects have been for ladies with 4B and 4C textured hair who are discovering their curl pattern for the first time after using this product.
In a culture where white beauty standards reign supreme, black women are oftentimes not just left outside of what is considered beautiful but also struggle just to be seen as acceptable. This can have a detrimental effect on how we view our own bodies, facial features, and especially our hair.
