Approximately ten years ago, Nikki Walton was a Missouri-based college student, balancing her studies and her social life like so many others, discovering deep-rooted things in her subconscious that had always existed but remained undetected. While away at school, Walton enlisted her boyfriend to transport her to and from her trusted hairstylist in St. Louis. This monthly trek entailed a three hour ride down the interstate- all to have her hair washed and “pressed” under scorching heat, ultimately achieving bone straight tresses that lasted a week. “After a year or two of that, my then-boyfriend, now husband, pulled me to the side and said, ‘You’re a Psych major, you should see that this isn’t healthy. Your hair is beautiful no matter how it is, and you should be comfortable with it kinky, curly, or straight,’” Walton recalls, “It was at that time that I had to agree with him.” Today, Nikki is a successful psychotherapist and the most credible online source in regards to natural hair care, maintenance, and decoding psychological ties between black women and their hair.
