“THIS IS NOT A BRAID. THIS IS A TWIST."

17 year old actress Skai Jackson just reminded us that protective styles are a whole new world for some.  Skai had to set the record straight and clear up some misconceptions for her friend.

The video below went viral, and we're so glad!  It takes dialogue and a safe space to feel free to ask questions in order to get educated about African American hair. We believe it is better to gain knowledge than to stay ignorant and we applaud that Skais friend is trying to understand in what she hopes is a judgement free zone.  Skais' gentle cliff notes on black hair and etiquette handling this situation was the cherry on top.
