Ep. 6: Don't Touch My Hair
We are super hyped to chat with Patrice Grell Yursik, a.k.a. Afrobella, a.k.a. the Godmother of Brown Beauty Blogging. (I feel good! *James Brown split*) She's also quietly known to us as our Carib Sistren and Nicole's #birthdaytwin. Patrice created Afrobella.com in 2006. The blog features inspiring, in depth information about natural hair, skincare and makeup, in addition to travel, lifestyle, music, and culture. She has been listed as one of WWD's 50 Most Influential People in the Multicultural Market, one of The Root 100, and is listed among 19 Black Women Who Broke Beauty Boundaries & Made History by Refinery 29. We of course talked hair, but we also chopped it about representation, how the internet has leveled the beauty industry playing field, and why it will never ever be cool to just reach out and touch a Black woman's hair. Plus, we start to unpack Patrice's "thing" for bald men. Paging Dr. Freud!
