We understand the strong point of connection in the Black community with hair and its impact on personal identity, self-esteem and confidence. In partnership with Black Women in Motion, we are proud to introduce the #MyHairMyStory campaign which amplifies the voices of eight Black women and their personal hair journeys, celebrating their hair for what it is: uniquely beautiful and uniquely theirs.
