New York in 2019 became the second state to ban discrimination based on natural hairstyles. Those laws pertain particularly to blacks who have been discriminated against in the workplace based on their hair texture and styles such as braids and cornrows.

A movement began shortly before the ban to get black women to embrace their natural hair. Now a Capital Region woman is making that a lot easier with her new line of natural hair care products.
