What is this HAIRSTORY 
all About?

Let me shrink it down for you

​ Hi, my name is Francesca Dorsey! My thesis project is on the study of curl types within African American culture!

I want to highlight how natural hair is becoming more important for African Americans in order to explore our historic roots and self acceptance. 

You're probably wondering,

"What exactly is a curl type ?"   

Hair or curls types are divided into sub classifications, from A to C, that are based upon the diameter of the wave, curl or coil.

"What is natural hair?"  

  Natural hair is not chemically processed but it does require care. I seek to inform and educate viewers about why natural hair is beautiful and acceptable. I am intrigued by stereotypes that have been placed on women of color and their hair.

"We need more self care!"

 For me, transitioning to my natural hair was a journey to finding myself and stripping myself of society’s cultural molds for black women. Transitioning is beyond physical, it is mental and spiritual. Storytelling through hair has been sown into the history of black culture and I intend to continue that story.
