To encourage women around the world to commit to wearing their hair in its most natural state, BlackNaturalHairstyles.org, is founding International Keep it Kinky Day on Saturday, February 21, 2015. “It’s a day without heat, weaves and chemicals, it’s a day for that big chop of yours,” said site co-founder Tiffani Knowles.
Concurrent with Black History Month celebrated in the U.S., Black Natural Hairstyles encourages solidarity on that day, sending the world the message: “We love Black hair. We celebrate it because it’s a reflection of who we are.”
As a sign of solidarity, Black Natural Hairstyles is encouraging women to organize their own “Keep it Kinky” meetup in their area on February 21. At each meetup, women are encouraged to take photographs with their Keep It Kinky shirts and kinky hairstyles for social media in hopes of changing the hair perceptions held by people of various races and those held by black people themselves.
Black Natural Hairstyles is an aggregated, content-rich site dedicated to helping naturals, especially the new natural, style, treat and maintain her natural hair.
