Black Hair Stories are stories of Black women and how their hair journey has shaped them. For Black Girls Who Have A Lot to Say is invested in sharing our stories, for us...by us. We will roll out more pics and quotes on our Instagram, so make sure to follow and share.

As a Black girl, our relationship with hair begins early on in our lives. Hair plays a huge role in who we are, what we've been through, and how far we have left to go. From India Arie's"I Am Not My Hair" to Solange's, "Don't Touch My Hair," to policy on hair discrimination, and the myth of "acceptable" hairstyles and hair types. Black hair is always the topic of conversation. In all its coils and twists, it tells our stories. Black hair is free like that. It goes its own way, it stretches and curls, and bends and sometimes it breaks.

Black hair comes in many styles, shapes, and forms, as do locs. Locs have different patterns and shapes, they can be braided, twisted, rodded, and molded. Locs have always signified strength and beauty. We're happy to share Imani's Loc Lovestory.
