If you live in a country like Nigeria, which has one of the strongest weaves and extensions culture in the world, you will understand how wearing natural hair to the workplace can be a struggle.
Berry has mentioned that a particular bank in Nigeria placed a ban on Natural hair, and I have done a post, presenting tips on how to wear your natural hair in the workplace without losing your mind.
We carried out a one-year poll on this topic, and the final results are in. See for yourself below. Again, I will mention that 76% of our traffic comes from search engines, so I therefore believe that most of the visitors are naturals, transitioning, curious about natural hair, or very interested in healthy hair care.
The majority mentioned that they would, and already wear their natural hair to work, while the next category would have worn it if the company policy would allow, amounting to a total of 87%.
It is so sad that 3% still think our hair is untidy, despite the fact that they visited this blog, but at least, that small percentage show that we have made a little progress. 9% think it doesn't look official, but I believe this category are prone to changing their mind sooner or later.
Out of the calls I receive from women about natural hair care, majority of the are concerned about how to make their natural hair look neat and suitable for the workplace. This gives me great joy, because a couple of years ago, the thought would hardly cross any woman's mind, apart from those who do it for religious reasons.
Again, like I said when I analysed the natural hair bride poll, even though we still have a long way to go, we have definitely come a long way.
… And this is what I call PROGRESS
