For many African American mothers, the joy of finding out that they are pregnant can be tainted by a thought that seems to haunt many of us, “Is my baby going to have ‘good’ hair?” The sigma of hair texture is one that has followed the black community for hundreds of years and can be traced back to slavery times when many slaves were given jobs according to complexion and hair texture. Blacks have been trained to believe that looser curls are more beautiful and easier to manage than tighter coils.

Unfortunately, curl pattern is still very important. For some women, to hide a child’s texture they may decide to use chemicals at an early age or add hair extensions to make the child’s hair more manageable.

Although hair style variations can be cute and fun, is it ok to disguise our children’s hair? Are looser curl patterns actually easier to manage or are we just uneducated on how to properly take care of our African-rooted locks? As mothers, it is important to teach our children that they are beautiful and so is their hair, no matter what the texture. Helping a child embrace every part of their body can help them later in life to be comfortable with themselves and give them a level of confidence that will help them become successful adults.

What do you think? Do you think ‘good’ hair exists?

After months of rumors and speculation, Beyonce has finally addressed those surrogate rumors that tainted her pregnancy. In her interview with People magazine, Bey said that the fake baby bump rumors were crazy. “That was crazy.   It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy. [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?'”

When asked about the infamous Australian interview that sparked the rumors, Beyonce said, “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.”

The star also revealed to the publication that she strapped on heels and did her hair before giving birth to her baby girl, Blue Ivy.

“I tried my best to roller-set my hair, and I wore my gloss when I arrived at the hospital,” she said. “I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels.”

Now that her feet are a lot “rougher” since giving birth, Beyonce has given up on wearing heels.

“I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn’t wear heels, but now that I have a child and I walk around holding her all day, I’m buying loafers and oxfords. I love them because they’re comfortable. And shorter heels too. I’d always thought, “The higher the heel, the sexier…. [Jay-Z] loves when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising — he never saw me in flats [before]!”

The singer  and her husband Jay-Z welcomed Blue Ivy Carter into the world on  January 7, 2012. Baby Blue is the couple’s first child together.
