1. Who just moved forward with the "Big Chop"?
Singer, Chrisette Michele

2. Who talked about the "ills of the kiddie perm"?
Comedian, Chris Rock

3. Who is the author of the book, Thank God I'm Natural?
Chris-Tia, Harvard-educated lawyer

5 Reasons:
1. You cannot teach your children to love themselves when they don't see you leading by example.
2. Conforming to the standard only perpetuates that it's okay.
3. We cannot expect those who have less exposure to black hair to appreciate it if we don't appreciate it ourselves.
4. We can save money! This is a recession! I buy nothing more than shampoo, conditioner, some hair lotion and shea butter. Put that money towards buying books.
5. Someone needs to change the beauty standard. It might as well be you!
