BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Natural hair is often left out of the conversation surrounding hair care. To become a part of changing this reality, Brooklyn College’s Women of Color club held a “Natural Girl’s Protective Hair Guide” on Tuesday, March 28. WOC partnered up with The Curly Code, RejuvaScalp, and Hair by Ayoka D to provide guests with tips and tricks for natural hair.
“It [natural hair care] takes a long time, it takes a lot of energy and sometimes, we get criticized for it no matter where we are, who we’re presenting ourselves to. And so this was a way to just remind people, your hair is beautiful no matter what texture, what color, what type,” said Ariscelys Turay, the president of WOC and a senior at BC. “You just gotta take care of it.”
