“Curls are my life even though I used to hate them once upon a time, and now here I am guiding women on how to embrace their curls”
BET created this series #HairPorn, gathering a hand full of influencers, to express how and why we became content creators. It goes to show you that we all have a story to tell, regardless of the hair type and background.
Coming from Colombian decent, it was considered rare to not have your hair straight, especially for events and professional settings. So much so that people often ask me “Are you mixed? Because I usually see Colombian women with straight hair.”
This series gave me the opportunity to speak to other latina’s and let them know that your hair might not be straight but that doesn’t you shouldn’t embrace your hair, if anything consider yourself lucky.
