Natural Hair & Skin Care Reseach for African American Women

I found this post in a natural hair group I belong to on Facebook. (Shout out to my #curlfriends in Natural Hair GR!) I believe that each one should reach one. Well this lady is conducting some research to benefit us curly girls in the natural hair community. Help her out. Here’s the post:

Hello everyone! I just wanted to say thank you for your overwhelming support so far in this project.

For those who don’t already know I am doing a research project on styling practices in relation to hair, skin, and overall health in African-American women.

The purpose of this project is to understand how hair care practices have changed with the recent boom in African American women wearing natural hair, how it has affected their health, and if they are seeing dermatologists for any of their hair issues. Although it is a study about African American women, every (race or nationality) female can participate and we encourage it. 

If you would like to participate in this research project it would only take 10-15 mins of your time and it would be a great help to begin to push our community forward in research about African American Hair. The study is completely voluntary and you can choose not to participate.

Thank you very much!

Please share this survey with your friends!!

I recently realized I have a passion for natural hair during on my journey toward self-acceptance and love. So much of who I am has always revolves around my hair. It reflects how I feel about myself internally. When I am depressed or stressed, I don't do my hair. If I do look like a million bucks, I feel like a million bucks, even if I'm flat broke. I started documenting my transition on Facebook and it spread to Instagram. I have been amazed at how I have come to love my kinks and curls. I didn't even know how to care for it when a started transitioning. It has been so liberating. I assumed the name LoveLEE around the same time as my transition because I needed to remind myself that I'm worthy of love. The image of women like me is skewed by the media and negative stereotypes. I refuse to confine since of love and beauty to society's standards. I'm starting this blog so other women will know that they don't have to be boxed in either. You are beautiful and flawless just the way you are.

Thanks for joining me.
