Who told you that you have, "BAD HAIR"? First let me start off by saying that there is no such thing as bad hair. The hair that you were blessed to have is your Crown. Often times feel that things are bad just because they are different. But we must then ask the question, "different from what?".
GalPatch is determined to turn your hat into a crown. Our goal is to help you see the beauty you hold instead of what you are lacking.
The expression of beauty through hairstyles has been a long-standing signature of Black culture. From the "fro" to hair wraps to braids, Black women use their hairstyles as a personal expression of who they are and to show the evolution of Black culture over time, an evolution which has brought us to a time when more and more Black women are embracing the natural beauty of their own hair. However, it doesn't escape controversy. Beauty, and specifically hair, in Black culture has been a sensitive topic of discussion for decades with roots all the way back to the Civil Rights Movement and beyond.
Recently, the connection between hair and identity has once again gained attention and garnered much debate within the Black community. Shea Moisture, a Black-owned hair company, has found itself in the middle of this debate after launching a new ad campaign. Since its founding, the company dedicated itself to providing its consumers, specifically Black women, with a range of natural products that span all hair types -- from loose, bouncy curls to tight kinky strands. Historically, the brand has prided itself on filling in the beauty gap, normalizing and bringing more awareness to Black beauty while providing Black women with products that otherwise could not be found in traditional retail channels.
Youth nowadays have pressure unlike no other before them. Social Media advertises false realities which turn into goals. There is nothing wrong with creating goals, but we aim to help each girl understand that she is perfect just the way she is. All it takes is skill training which in return builds confidence. A bully isn't a bully without a victim. Our goal is eliminate the Bully by eliminating the victim. Empowerment builds character and self-esteem and self-esteem builds confidence.
