Growing numbers of women with hair that’s curly, kinky and wavy are embracing the texture, rather than using chemical relaxers and harsh heat treatments to straighten it.

Kojo talks with Branch about the expansion of Miss Jessie’s line from a home salon to Target’s shelves, as well as the cultural meaning we all wear in our hair.
