About Us

If you look back throughout history, the narrative around black hair has always included a lot of negative language such as 'unmanageable', or 'nappy'. Twice a month, join Lynda Moyo and Claire Quansah as they talk openly about Afro hair and the decisions and choices black and mixed race women make about their hair on a daily basis. Whether you rock natural or relaxed hair, box braids, cornrows, wigs or weaves, regardless of your hairstyle, texture, length, or preference, this podcast opens up the conversation on hair and blackness in the modern day.
