Natural Hair Style: Goddess Braid by MsDanti, YouTube Sceenshot

As you know, I am a firm believer in Black women doing what the heck we want. We’s free! Well a few days ago, I saw a young woman ask if she should straighten her natural hair for her job interview. She said she wanted to look professional. The question bothered the h-e-double candy sticks out of me.

I thought, why was this even a question? Why the heck is there this myth that natural Black hair is not professional? Who made this rule? I won’t lie. The first thought that came to my mind was self-hater! Yes, I judged. It is not right, but I did. I attributed her thinking to the whole internalized racism thing. We’ve all encountered the Black folks who think natural Black hair isn’t professional. They are the sorry folks who say, “when are you getting a relaxer?” when the only thing you want to relax are your four fingers on their face and your nerves. They learned this from people who reinforced old slavery and colonization myths. Think about it. It seems like every time there was a holiday or church event mama would reach for the hot comb so we can’t be surprised. Or maybe they watched too many Kevin Hart stand ups and listened to Sheryl Underwood on her show. Honestly, who knows? Then I thought deeper. Maybe these women believed that because Whites do the hiring and firing. Because of that fact, we have to conform our looks to fit in with them. That makes a lot of sense.

Well, I am here to prove all of y all wrong. Here are seven easy do-it-yourself natural hair tutorials that prove Black hair in all it kinky glory aka “the proof” is professional hair.

Our hair styles had existed long before people left the African continent and will continue forever. One more thing.

    A speaker came to my law school’s black law student association and told the black women to straighten their hair to get jobs.

    I graduated in 2014 mind you.

    Before I got the job I have now, when I was searching, I was denied job after job, until I started straightening my hair then several job offers landed on my table.

    Once at work, on days when my hair was straightened my job performance was praised, on days when my hair was natural I was constantly called into the office for vague discussions about the things I was doing wrong.
