Blogger Sunflowernbklyn, of Loving Your Natural hair started a new blog on her loc journey. I was so excited to find a blogger on WordPress with locs. If you think back to an earlier post of mine and an Ebony article titled “Loc’d Out: Has the Style Lost its Luster?”, there aren’t many well-known bloggers with locs.
As today’s Mondays Around the Web feature, her post on natural hair in advertisements caught my eye. In this post, she talks about the increasing number of naturals in advertisements. She states: “I don’t know about you guys but lately I’ve been coming across a lot of advertisements in magazines with natural curlies everywhere! Sure, in the past few years there has been a sprinkle or two and the majority of them were children. Most recently in my Real Simple magazine there was one company, so sorry I forget the name but it’s products are clothing created from recycled materials and all the models are 85% naturals. How cool is that?” Read the rest here.
