Celebrate Your C.R.O.W.N
Eighty-one percent of Black girls who attend predominately white schools say they sometimes wish their hair was straight. Additionally, Black women are 80% more likely to feel as though they must alter their hair in order to get hired or feel accepted in the workforce.
The pressure that Black women and girls face to assimilate by straightening their hair or wearing certain styles is toxic. More often than not, the problem is worsened by a lack of natural hair representation in mainstream media. Let’s combat the stigma by celebrating and uplifting one another! Post your favorite photo of you and/or your daughter(s) in your natural hair under the hashtag #ShareYourCrown for the chance to be featured on Dove’s CROWN page!
