Black/mixed heritage hair care session

17th November, 2021

On Wednesday 20th October, we held a black/mixed heritage hair care session as part of Black History Month.

During the session we talked about World Afro Day which is celebrated annually in September. World Afro Day is a global day of change, education and celebration of Afro hair and identity. When it comes to educating about Afro hair, they say:

“If you don’t have Afro hair, please think of it as a new language to learn.”

It is important that we support our foster carers, children and young people who all come from different backgrounds and heritages with education and awareness. We want all of our children and young people with a black/mixed heritage to feel empowered and proud of who they are and foster carers from different backgrounds to have the tools to ensure this is the case. As part of the session, we discussed:

  • The different hair types
  • Hair tools and products to use on different hair
  • Hair care & styling

Everyone who attended the session learnt a lot and also felt a sense of community in that learning. We were able to create many different hairstyles during the session.
