Mondays Around the Web – Cherry Lola

Good morning readers and subscribers! Today’s Mondays Around the Web feature comes from the blog, Cherry Lola. Cherry Lola is a UK blogger (originally from Canada) who blogs about natural hair.

Her blog actually has an entire category dedicated to advertisements that rock with natural hair. I was so excited to find her blog because there were so many advertisements/commercials to choose from. Funny enough, we’ve actually found one or two of the same commercials.

This screen shot is actually from an old SunChips commercial.  It’s a man with natural hair and he’s not being called uncivilized. Where are all the commercials and advertisements with men who have natural hair? In some circles within the natural hair community, it seems like women prefer men to be “clean-cut, shaven” and not have “bushy afros”.

Is there a double standard that exists for men with natural hair? If so, why?
