Army Regulations and Natural Hair

Army Regulations and Natural Hair

Recent army regulations on grooming and appearance seem to unfairly target black women. Twists and dreads are now UNAUTHORIZED?! Seems a little extreme to me, especially since these are styles commonly worn by women of color in an attempt to look more professional and kept. Its not like women in the service already have a hard enough time existing in a super hyper masculine environment, and now on top of that they have nit-picky hair regulations to worry about. I wonder if any women of color were apart of the group that designed these regulations…..
