We're over being stigmatised for our hair. Help us change the way Black hair is perceived through research, education, and positive representation..

Why We Exist

Why is this important?

Hair discrimination remains a source of racial injustice with serious consequences for Black people in the UK. Despite hair being a protected racial characteristic under the law, there is a widely held belief that Black hairstyles are not suited for formal settings, and may be unhygienic, messy, disruptive, or unkempt. These ideas strike at the freedom and dignity of Black people and serve no purpose other than to instil shame in us about our Blackness.

No one should have to change their natural or protective hairstyle in order to thrive. Together, we will ensure that all Black people can learn, work, and live free from hair discrimination.

We think you're good vibes.
