Is straight hair partly to blame for obesity among African-American women?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Fox Chicago news anchor Robin Robinson had an interesting report Wednesday night on Fox News at 9 regarding the fact that many African-American women do not exercise regularly ----- because of their hair. More to the point, the fact that their chemically-straightened hair doesn't afford them the luxury of a workout/shower/go to work ability that the rest of us take for granted.

This is a fascinating an eye-opening report, (especially about health issues, and not just the issues about all the dangers of chemical relaxers). The video is here for your convenience, and it really gives us a LOT to think about. Robinson herself is sporting a "natural" curl to her otherwise "anchorwoman 'do".... see what you think. Apparently there is a study that supports Robinson's claims. What do you think ladies? Let us know.
