Happy New Month!!!!!! I hope your year has been going great?
There is been a long debate about Natural hair in the work place for a couple of years and while Natural hair is becoming more acceptable in the corporate world. There are still employers that still frown at the idea of your Natural hair being on display largely because there is a notion of natural hair making you look unkempt.
I am fortunate to be in Technology industry where you are (for the most part) allowed to express yourself and the work place isn't all that uptight. Shout out to all the "back office" chicks. My employer doesn't have a problem with my natural hair and my colleagues are sometimes amazed at the versatility of my hair. I know some people cannot say the same and if they are even allowed to wear their hair to their work places, they are stuck with just one hair style.
I think we can stay on each sides of the divide, an employer that wants you to be at the work place looking sharp and tidy and you have a 4 weeks old twist with all the frizz and the naturalista that just wants to be able to be versatile with her hair and try new styles every week.
What do you think about Natural Hair and the work place? Why do you think there are restrictions with Natural hair? Do you think Employers need to be educated? What is your experience with your natural hair in your place of work?
