Over the past few years we have seen a surge in African-American women saying goodby to their relaxed hair and embracing their natural locks. There also has been, what one may view as, a nasty fight between #TeamNatural and #TeamRelaxed. Within the past year it seems like what some may have viewed as “hype” has now become more accepted in to the mainstream. Many women of color were afraid to rock their natural with the fear of being judged and ostracized. I never promoted or condoned the entire #TeamRelaxed or #TeamNatural feud. It seemed like parties from both ends were attacking each other instead of promoting #TeamHealthyHair. We have so many options when it comes to hair and I feel that people should do what fits their lifestle- activities and budget, and whatever they prefer.

With more and more research linking relaxers to cancer, fibroids and other health issues, many women are making the switch and beginning to transition. Even though a lot of the research has been found inconclusive, women all over the world are not taking any chances and are beginning to transition.

With the natural hair market now in the spotligh of African-American Hair Care brands are taking notice. Carol’s Daughter has always been one step ahead. For years they’ve created hair care products that would suit the natural diva. In an interview with Huffington Post Black Voices Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter revealed

“We’re so excited about the upcoming launch of the ‘Transitioning Movement.’ Carol’s Daughter has always been a champion of embracing your individual beauty, and this is one more way that we’re giving women the encouragement and tools they need to make it happen”

Take a look at a promo video for the upcoming campaign which will launch in April.
