The Business of Hair-Pt.2

The Business of Hair-Pt. 2Episode 74–The Business of Hair-Pt.2

 

In The Business of Hair-Pt.2,  The Working Woman Radio Show invited hairstylist, Angelia McCall, back to the studio to talk about Tessica Brown-the Louisiana woman dubbed “Gorilla Glue Girl” after she made the unfortunate mistake of spraying her hair in place with the adhesive.

Many people made fun of this woman for putting Gorilla Glue in her hair, however, this is not an isolated incident. This is just an extreme form of something that happens every day particularly for women of color.

Ms. McCall talks about the harsh chemicals that women, particularly women of color use on their hair, and the extreme caution that should be used when working with these kinds of products.

Black Hair in the Workplace-Part I

Episode 24–Black Hair in the Workplace–Pt.1

Black hair in the workplace has taken center stage in recent years.

Because of the toxic chemicals in hair products that are marketed to African-American women, more women are choosing to wear naturally. Some employers, however, feel that these natural hair styles are “unprofessional” and as result, many women still feel pressured to use harmful chemicals to straighten and color their hair.

Special guest, Dr. Andrea Christian Parks, talks about the health problems caused by these chemicals. She shares ways to help the next generation practice better hair health. Finally, Dr. Christian Parks shares some recommendations for hair and skin care products that African-American women can use as safer alternatives.
