Ethnic Hairstyles Are Unprofessional

Well, policy makers surely think so. What can we do about it? We can sign this petition for change. 

The petition to “Reconsider Changes to AR 670-1 To Allow Professional Ethnic Hair Styles” is fighting to prevent hair styles that are racially biased. Currently, this policy prevents twists (flat and two-strand twits) and dreadlocks. Any hair style that is considered “matted or coiled locks of hair” is and”unauthorized hair style.” 
 Many members of the natural hair community are buzzing about it. I found this out through @KinkyCurlyCoily on Twitter. I’m really glad that I stumbled upon this particular tweet. 
African Americans who opt out of chemical processing shouldn’t be the only ones outraged about this. Racism should not still be this prevalent in the United States. People fighting for our country shouldn’t have to defend their hair as well. Seriously, what is this world coming to? 
To sign the petition, click the link above or here. You will have to make an account on the website, but I think it’s well worth it. Have a voice on more than just this issue and be informed. 
Comment below on how you feel about this not matter what your ethnicity or hair texture.

This girl’s sharp, quick wit may not be for the faint of heart, but those close to her say that she’s caring and hilariously funny. Reality TV, a not -so-small sweet tooth, nail polish, and fashion are but a few of her guilty pleasures. Her obsession with writing and hobby of interviewing brought her to conducting a few interviews with fashion designers and makeup artists for her fashion blog, Hey There, Stylish! Curiosity for different lifestyles and experiences lead to more interviews and ultimately became Gal Pal Magazine. Like many college girls, Lauren is a media strategies major who spends her days going to class; most of her late nights are reserved for studying and her night job.
