About Green Hair Revolution
Green Hair Revolution’s mission is to provide women, men and children with strategies for healthy hair care, by bringing education, engagement, and empowerment concerning hair, body and spirit to the public through various mediums and methods. Founders and sisters Sherry E. Early Aden and Clydia Early began Green Hair Revolution as an outlet to discuss and share experiences pertaining to hair with other like-minded hair enthusiasts. After many forums, meet-up sessions, and reflections on the power and politics of hair, they realized that as a society many of our issues with hair were greater then what was on top of our heads. They realized that what they were witnessing was a revolution — A RETURN TO THE PLACES WE HAD ONCE BEEN, before chemicals, before the assault on our natural selves had begun.
