What Happened to the Natural Hair Care Revolution

How can we forget Lauryn Hill revamping the natural hair revolution? Well, in case you were wondering - the revolution is still going on. Black women are constantly being encouraged to embrace their roots so to speak. One of the leading natural hair care stylist in the business, sits at the helm of this interesting plight of sorts. Ms Malaika-Tamu Cooper is the owner of Dreadz N' Headz natural hair care center, located in northwest Baltimore Maryland.

From repairing chemically processed hair to making the decision to loc or rather twist/braiding of one’s hair; this salon goes deeper by offering massages, seminars and Afro centric dance classes. Ms. Cooper’s salon is just the tip of the iceberg on learning and understanding just what it means to the black community to “loc” into your natural born heritage.

The premise of the natural hair care revolution revolves around wanting acceptance and equality. The essence of these goals reflects the 1960’s civil rights movement. Our hair is said to be a crowning glory. This idea coincides with the importance of making a choice to join the natural hair care revolution a very careful and personal one. So, here are a few upcoming events:

  • North Carolina Natural Hair Expo, (June 11-12, 2011)

  • The Milwaukee Natural Hair Care Expo, (June 26, 2011)

  • Happy Nappy Days Poets in the Park, (July 10, 2011)
