Another Argument Against The Straight And Narrow
With Chris Rock and Tyra Banks bringing the issue of “natural hair” to both the big and small screens, curly girls of all ages and races are grappling more than ever with the issue of whether or not to go straight. Naturallycurly.com is hoping that all women choose to embrace their textured tresses and has challenged the ringlet-having masses to embark on a six-month “journey of transition.” The Web site has partnered with Miss Jessie’s—makers of Curly Pudding and other cult-favorite hair salves—to offer product incentives to all the brave souls who are willing to break free from the bondage of relaxers and chemical straighteners and document the process of leaving their damaged hair behind. All you have to do is show the most gumption in regrowth between now and March 31 by snipping off your straight ends in small steps or in one fell swoop and uploading pictures of the transformation. Every month, four people will be selected to win free product prescriptions to assist in the process. Click here for more information, and may the best frizzy mop win.
