Curly hair maintenance can be difficult, and many with textured hair struggle to learn how to properly care for their hair, resulting in frizzy or dull manes. Those with curly hair have long been pressured to straighten, relax, and damage their hair to look more ‘professional’. These beauty standards have an especially great impact on people of color, for whom natural hair suppression has often overlapped with racial injustice. Yet curly hair is a source of pride for many, and a source of connection to their cultural, racial, and personal identities. Curly Chronicles documents the joys and struggles of curly hair care in an illustrated ebook, with links to further online video resources. We aim to promote greater awareness and celebration of hair diversity. We hope to encourage readers to learn how to care for their hair and see the beauty and wonder in their natural hair.
