Woman with Natural Hair - WE ACT for Environmental Justice

“I personally love changing my hairstyles up, from wearing it natural to having a weave. What I dread are the questions at work about the different changes. I don’t like to even come around my white co-workers the first day of a new hairstyle because they always overanalyze it as if Black women’s hair isn’t as versatile as theirs. From the ‘Wow, new hair’ to the ‘So, what’d you do to get it like that?’ these questions take the joy away from a long-awaited silk press, a new long weave, or just a simple twist-out. To be honest, it makes me hypersensitive about my hair and what style I choose.” — Kali Stewart
