Why this competition


Miss Frizzy Hair 2010 in collaboration with SME BROADCAST

Why this competition?
A disproportionately large percentage of Black women suffer from hair breakage and hair loss. Out of shame, however, this problem is rather not discussed, let alone raised.

While the hair problems are a direct result of using chemicals to straighten the hair, the root cause lies in an undeniable cultural and societal pressure that every Black woman faces sooner or later. How else should I wear my hair? Can I walk with an afro, cornrows or dreadlocks? The limited options with which we are familiar are certainly not always accepted in the work environment.

The alternative to wear the hair in a natural way therefore causes a deep heartbreaking battle in the subconscious of the Black woman, with frizzy hair usually being the loser. The fear of being laughed at or rejected for frizzy hair runs so poignantly deep and the idea is so painfully frightening that many women prefer to opt for bald spots and hair loss. A dilemma that dates back to the time of slavery and still today divides the black community into good and bad hair.

With this competition, therefore not only aims to promote the natural beauty and versatility of frizzy hair in, the organization also wishes to draw attention to the tolerated pressing problem and to make it discussable from various angles in order to work on a solution. .
