I like the term ‘kinky,’” Lupita Nyong’o told Allure magazine back in April. “Some people don’t like that term, but when I think about my hair, I think of it as African kinky hair. Curly hair differs so much.”

There’s not one woman in America who does not care about her hair,” Viola Davis shared with ESSENCE magazine in October 2013. “But we give it way too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair.”
