Sorf Hair

Sorf Hair

People with kinky/curly hair have been the butt of every hair joke for centuries. From discrimination to lost opportunities, these issues tend to take a toll on the lives of “naturals” around the globe. Sorf Hair explores the natural-hair experience in T+T as people from all walks of life and with different hair textures reveal their stories and challenges.
