In the one-minute clip above, posted by Centric TV, black celebrity women including Jordin Sparks, Tatiana Ali, Jazmine Sullivan, Tinashe, and Eva Marcille somberly share stats on the state of black women’s edges today.
“One out of three black women will face dwindling edges in their lifetime,” the stars declare.
There are, of course, many ways to lose one’s edges (the hair around the hairline), from wearing braids too tight to listening to the latest Beyoncé
album. But the video insists that awareness and prevention is the key:
“Save them for our sisters, mothers, aunties, daughters” actress Tatiana Ali pleads in the clip. “Save them for the babies … baby hairs.”
