The Coil Review is Back!

Back in October, I featured a commercial for an awesome natural hair website called The Coil Review (See The Coil Review for the original post). Well, the company has since released a new promo video for their site. Check it out:



Being that I have worn my hair curly and straight in the workplace and received dramatically different responses from men and women of all races for doing so, I find it interesting to see this topic addressed in the commercial. What do you think?

XOXO,

I've never worked in an overly corporate environment; I'm always low woman on the totem pole. When you work in the trenches, they don't care how you wear your hair :-).

It's pretty interesting for me. I work at a high school and unfortunately/fortunately am very youthful looking. Since I've started transition, I get urges to wear my hair is pretty "out there" styles. I'm very cautious at work however because it's very important for me to be able draw that line between myself and my students.

I am still in the process of transitioning and have not experienced any reaction to my hair in the workplace. However, before I started transitioning, I was concerned about how my natural hair would affect my career. Luckily (at least I hope) I have since become self employed and will be able to wear my hair however I please! Of course being a near-natural, I am always pleased to see women embracing their texture like I am. But I know that just isn't always the case, so I definitely think it's a good thing that they touched on that in this video.

i love it. i've been a natural since about 2002/2003 and i have heard the most 'interesting' things at work and from certain family members. and you do tend to have high anxiety over what style may be 'too much' when going to work. like you spend the weekend being FAB in your own right and then the dreaded monday comes, and the 'what will THEY think...' thoughts ensue.

It's a shame how biased society is when it comes to embracing African influence and African American culture. Why is everything associated with our natural state taboo? How can our 'own' communities turn their noses up at natural hair? Even so, I guess I'll just have to be radical when it comes to the way God made me, it's a privilage to be touched by the Potter. Its extremely exciting to see how far 'nappturality' has come! Lets respect and embrace our uniqueness, this isn't a fad, its a way of life!
