Category: Hair Care for Humanity

We believe that what you put on and in your body should promote wellness, and also be kind to the Earth. Hair care for humanity is a term we use to describe our outreach to the community to educate and support men and women of all ages and all ethnicities. Segmenting hair care by ethnicity does not encourage diversity, love, and multicultural coexistence. Jane Carter Solution supports grassroots initiatives that contribute to the protection, growth and development of our global communities in need.

You Can Touch My Hair

0 Comments

People, people everywhere!  A large number of people gathered in New York City’s Union Square Park on last Saturday to touch black women’s hair. It was all part of a two-day “interactive public art exhibit,” titled “You Can Touch My Hair”.

touch my hair

Three black women stood in Union Square with signs welcoming strangers to come feel. The women had different hair types: locs, straightened hair and a blown-out afro. The purpose is to explore the “tactile fascination with black hair” by feeling the hair of black women. Un-ruly.com, who organized the event, describes it as a public art exhibit “where strangers from all walks of life will have the welcomed opportunity to touch various textures of black hair”.

We have two questions:

  1. What are your thoughts on the experiment?
  2. Would you participate and allow strangers to touch your hair?

Meet me on Facebook and Twitter for the discussion.

Lawmakers to Ease Regulations on Natural Hair in Oregon?

0 Comments

Last Tuesday afternoon as representatives from both groups asked lawmakers to ease regulations on natural hair care, a critical aspect of “black culture”. Oregon law currently prohibits natural hair care practitioners from braiding, cornrowing, extending, lacing, twisting and performing similar functions outside their homes without undergoing extensive cosmetology coursework.

Hairbraiding

The bill up for public hearing would exempt natural hair care from the state’s barbering requirements, establishing an online certification process for natural hair practioners. Supporters state that natural hair care should not be regulated the same as barbering since it doesn’t entail the use of chemicals that are often used in perming and coloring hair.

Currently Oregon’s cosmetology coursework does not include information on natural hair care, should they be regulated under the same standards? Weigh in and join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter!

“The secret of forgiving everything is to understand nothing” –George Bernard

It’s that time of year when people begin thinking about making their New Year’s resolutions.

At some point, we’ve all been wronged, perhaps you were in an abusive relationship or a friend turned their back on you.  You’ve carried bitterness and resentment with you ever since. You may have had no choice in what happened to you, but you do have a choice in how you react to this adversity and how you will live the rest of your life.

Internalizing hurt and anger is harmful — spiritually, physically and mentally. Give yourself the gift of forgiveness. Lighten your load for the New Year.

To forgive, to accept forgiveness, to ask for forgiveness is a powerful start to the New Year.
