In this episode of the Curl Power Podcast, I speak to my Mom. She is a Windrush Generation Immigrant who came to this country, England, when she was just 6 years old. Sadly my Mom’s Mom passed away in childbirth when my Mom was only 8. This Mothers Day Special is dedicated to my Mom.

We discussed:

Embracing her natural hair journey and her previous hair fails
Arriving in this country as a young immigrant and her memories of coming to England
How not having a Mom around impacted her relationship with her hair
Uncomfortable looks
And what it’s like being about being a Mom to two Mixed-race kids

The Curl Squad represents all things community, conversation, confidence and curls. We discuss growing up curly, overcoming obstacles, traumas and triumphs as well as sharing a natural hair care essential or two.

I’ll be introducing you to some incredibly inspiring curly creators and innovators as we discuss the natural hair community, representation, doing meaningful work and building bigger tables.
