But what would you think if someone came in with purple hair?

A consultant when I was seeking advice on how I should go about discussing the harassment and discrimination I have dealt with concerning my natural afro-textured hair at my job. I do not wear braids, locs, or twists. Nor do I cut my hair or dye my hair in unnatural colors (I keep it brown). I ONLY wear my hair out…like any other women at my job. Made me feel upset, insulted, and without a voice. Even someone who was suppose to help didn’t understand how natural my hair is and instead compared it to an unnatural color.
