I have never experienced discrimination in the 9-5 world, but in the entertainment industry I have on occasion *example -music videos even neo soul artist, and movies.
Any advice to someone just starting out on their journey
Yes nurture yourself consistently eat as healthy as possible, get in the sauna, do yoga or dance to relieve stress. Your hair is a reflection of your internal state most times as far as it’s growth and health. Be patient on your loc journey don’t focus so much on hair growth, but more on positive life changes that will come with the transition. Try grooming and styling your hair on occasion, it’s similar to taking a hot bath after a stressful day. Taking care of your hair is taking care of you :).
