Janet Hubert, also known as my aun­tie in my head, is always drop­ping knowl­edge on Face­book about pol­i­tics and her career. But this time, she shared anoth­er type of post, hon­or­ing her late styl­ist Der­rick Scur­ry, and she looks absolute­ly fab­u­lous.

Hair by the late Der­rick Scur­ry, this was our last pho­to shoot. I miss him ter­ri­bly. My nat­u­ral­ista sis­ters know I am a Qhemet Bio­log­ics junkie. Only prod­uct that always makes this bush look good. I get so much shrink­age. Now I am think­ing about locs when I final­ly retire. I wish more women on tele­vi­sion would rock their nat­ur­al hair, espe­cial­ly on these morn­ing shows.

Now, this may seem like a small or insignif­i­cant request, but unfor­tu­nate­ly there is still a strong bias in the work­place regard­ing black women and nat­ur­al hair, and this is ampli­fied when the woman is in the spot­light. Just this week, NPR print­ed a sto­ry about “new” evi­dence show­ing bias against nat­ur­al hair, as if we didn’t already  know.

Kudos to Hubert for con­tin­u­ing to speak out and be vocal on her own terms.



Elle is the edi­tor and cre­ative direc­tor of the YouTube chan­nel and blog, Quest for the Per­fect Curl at Her chan­nel focus­es on nat­ur­al hair, beau­ty, and fit­ness. She loves prod­ucts that smell like dessert, yoga, and glit­ter. Fol­low her @qftpc.

I see “Black Girl With Long Hair”! This makes me believe there may be dis­cus­sions, pho­tos, news, etc, for or about Black peo­ple. I was intrigued, I knew most con­tent would be about and for Black women. Under­stand­ing this, I opened my inbox for noti­fi­ca­tions. I knew there would be infor­ma­tion specif­i­cal­ly geared to some of my inter­ests.

Before I learned to swim, I didn’t dive into the deep end.


Excel­lent and of course there is a bias against black women and nat­ur­al hair in the work place and auch. She looks beau­ti­ful! Keep at it!
