We know who they are: Beautiful Black women in the spotlight at the peak of their careers who have inspired us with their beauty, talent and strength throughout their careers. Naomi wearing the long, straight and silky which became her trademark style and Brandy, her long box braids encouraged so many of us to go out to the nearest salon to copy her style. There are others, many others... we see them, never wearing their own hair but only wearing extension, weave, wig... brightly colored and straight, bleached blond, jet black or subtle and curly. And we fear to think about what is going on underneath.
We hear many 'facts' or 'information' related to baldness or hair loss from different sources. Through media, through friends, family members, our elders in the family etc and we begin to get worried about the way our hair look and sometimes get confused as to what to follow and what not to follow in order to get healthy hair.
