Have you guys heard about California’s recent law banning discrimination based on hairstyle? The CROWN act, which passed in the California State Assembly and Senate, is the first such law in the United States—and it’s about time! Nobody should worry about not getting hired because of their hair’s natural texture or style. As a licensed stylist in Natural Hairstyling, my hope is that this will encourage people to embrace their hair’s natural state and their own preferences. There are many protective styles that promote healthy hair, look fantastic, and allow a person to express themselves. Nobody should feel forced into a harmful treatment laden with worrisome chemicals like formaldehyde or lye just because they’re worried about being judged for something as personal as hair. There are beautiful styling options (such as braiding), as well as healthier keratin treatments (if you so choose), that are healthier while looking just as good.
