Natural Hair Rules in the News

This article was featured in African American News and Issues.

HOUSTON- As the founder of Natural Hair Rules (NHR), Tamara L. Floyd has inspired hundreds of women to be the woman that God created by embracing their natural selves. NHR provides inspirational and practical advice. Naturalists receive easy step by step natural hair technique/methods as well as biblical principles that uplift yet encourage. She embarked on her natural hair journey in 2006 where she struggled to disarm negative perception of the natural African-American woman. In creating Natural Hair Rules, stereotypes and misconception about women of color who discontinue the use of hair straightening methods are
discredited while sharing her journey of self-discovery through learning her natural hair. It provides a social network for those transitioning to natural, the natural and those who are considering natural. A graduate of the University of Houston with a Bachelors’ of Science in Biology and minor in African American Studies, Tamara currently is the National Community Outreach Educator of Sisters Network Inc., An African-American Survivorship Organization.
