“I stopped weaving my hair, I stopped getting extension and all those things because I didn’t identify with it…. I realise weren’t actually good for more or good for my hair…..I’m all about embracing people, if its what makes you feel beautiful then… ”
Few things can define, characterise and make a statement like hair. Far removed from the eye of the beholder, beauty standards seem to come in a predetermined, neatly packaged box that is neither challenged nor questioned. In our multi-racial society, there is yet another layer to consider: the politics of hair. In this episode, a group of South African women explore the diversity of hair as an identity marker. They ponder on whether hair is a reflection of who you are or simply a matter of personal style.
