5. The Natural Hair Movement, Texturism and The Big Chop!
Friday, 29 October
The Natural Hair Movement has thrived online in the last 10 years which has empowered Black women all around the world to wear their natural hair with pride but this movement was born out of political unrest in the 1960s in the USA. To understand the origins of the Natural Hair Movement and how this has grown today Leanne speaks to journalist and writer Valley Fontaine as well as three natural hair influencers, Curl Lea Travel, Stephy Lately and Yaa Yaa Asare. They touch on the extent to which the Natural Hair Movement is representative of all hair textures today, the way that texturism is still present in our day to day lives and they share some tips on how Leanne can have a successful transition from chemically straightened to natural hair.
Also in this episode you’ll hear the whole experience of Leanne’s big chop, by none other than friend of the podcast Derek Clements.
