My Hair, My CROWN

A tool to help build hair confidence

My Hair, My CROWN is a new free tool for educators, parents and mentors. It’s academically validated to boost hair confidence in kids with coils, curls, waves and protective styles, as well as build allyship in others to Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair. The resource was specially created for children aged 11–14, designed to target a key source of appearance pressure for young people – hair and hair culture.

How does it work?

My Hair, My CROWN is set flexibly across 90 minutes (live or remote). The session aims to provide young people with the space to self-identify, and share key confidence-impacting stereotypes and experiences related to hair and beauty. By showing how many beliefs and life experiences everyone has in common and exploring differences, the session leader will provide a safe and open environment to discuss how stereotypes, discrimination and experiences can affect self-esteem. Then, together the group will participate in exercises based on insights and tools that help combat hair-related appearance pressures.

Download the session now and join us in making a difference to young people everywhere. Together, we can help youth navigate and eliminate race-based hair discrimination for the next generation.

Body Confidence Canada recently reviewed and adapted the content of this tool with Dove having the final approval.
