Good Hair?

I saw this post over at Curly Nikki and decided to share this with those that don't frequent her blog often. It's about teaching your daughter to love her natural hair.

What stuck out to me the most was this:

"I cringe every time I hear someone use the term “good hair”– a degrading statement used far too often in the black community. To me, “good hair” is healthy hair that grows and is an expression of who you are. As black women, our hair is our crown and an extension of who we are: queens, mothers, our ancestors and God. That’s what I plan on telling my daughter. Take the time out to teach your daughters how to love and care for their natural hair. Instill the confidence in them that they are beautiful and to wear their crown proudly"

I feel the same exact way!!! I feel the term "good hair" should be abolished just like slavery was.
No one should feel like one has better hair then they do because of their texture. And if they do, how can they teach their daughters any different? It's all about self love I tell you!
