Natural Hair Styles Vs. Culture Appropriation Hair Styles

Natural Hair Styles Vs. Culture Appropriation Hair Styles

In this episode, we will be talking about Natural Hair Styles Vs. Culture Appropriation Hair Styles and how this distinct representation of the African heritage is being used as an accessory to fulfill personal aspirations or another fashion trend. As an Afro-Caribbean girl who currently has natural dreadlocks, I have seen how authentic African styles such as braids, cornrows, and even dreadlocks are being culturally exploited. Different media outlets have referenced cornrows as a new trend, but black women and men have been rocking these styles for decades. Wearing braids have always been an African tradition of representing the identity of tribes and a way to show appreciation for the influence of our ancient ancestors, but somehow along the way, we have forgotten the true meaning of authentic living. This is the real purpose for me doing this podcast episode, to address not only the cultural appropriation of African heritage but also the lack of understanding for those of truly abide within the traditions of Kings and Queens.  Don’t forget to share, comment and send us your questions so we can address them here on the show.
