And now I finally get to share it!
So, a while back I shared these looks on my Facebook:
And I told y’all that I was working on a really cool project? Well, part one of that project is done, and I’m so happy to share this with y’all!
So, this project I was part of is all about natural hair and beauty, and I was so happy to participate. Most images of natural hair pretty much stick to the uniform corkscrew curls. Now, don’t get me wrong—those curls are gorgeous. But it also tends to edge out those who have fluffier, less defined curls (mine) or those with dreadlocks or those with puffs, and so on and so on.
Further, when we look at natural hair in mainstream media…well, you don’t see it. Not in all of its forms; not in all of its glory. Think about it: the last time you saw a music video, did any of the women have natural hair? Hear any songs praising those kinky curls?
Well, this video has all of that, and I got to be in it. 🙂
Without further ado, I present to you: Natural Love: A Vignette.
The song was written and produced by the same guy that directed this piece, Civil Justus. You can see his other work on his channel here, and read up on his other projects here. This is just the first part; the next part is interviews about our hair.
I had an amazing time working on this,and am so honored to be a part of it! I can’t wait to share the next part with you. 🙂
