So glad we’re speaking on it. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Way too often we aren’t seen as “ideal candidates” based primarily on the appearance of our hair. Being deemed as unprofessional I still am perplexed about what my fro has to do being able to do my job.

As a pharmacy technician, the pharmacist would say my curls were a distraction & weren’t professional. Which was odd cause our customers loved my hair & would receive several complements daily. What my hair had to do with processing prescriptions, I could never answer. Aside from it being hate & an unjust bias. Because when other girls would come in with their curls laying down more against their backs; nothing, No complaints.

My hair is anything but unkept & “unprofessional” you unethical bitch. I wish anyone step to me with that type of nonsense. {#LetaBitchTryMe} my natural hair has nothing to do with my work ethic, duty capabilities, & job performance. Why should we have to hide the true essence of who we are to conform to a standard we don’t fit in, {square peg in circle complex}. & I’m not referring to showing up to your work place in sweats & a tank top or tight mini skirt…..
