“Hair Freedom,” a new short documentary by filmmaker Zindzi Rocque Drayton, features black British women talking about the natural hair movement in the U.K.

According to Drayton,

‘Natural hair’ is defined as Afro textured hair that isn’t chemically straightened. In our society and throughout the world, straight hair is so normalised that a large number of black women chemically straighten their Afro texture. Touching on topics from rocking an Afro in the workplace to the legacy of slavery, I find out the pressures and joys of women who have embraced their ‘natural hair’.
