The story of Good Hair Day
Good Hair Day started in 2016 as an urban event. GHD's most important goal is to empower the AfroFinnish community. The collective supports self care culture, where individual's coping mechanism are taken care of. GHD challenges the existing beauty norms and breaks down negative stereotypes of blackness both within and outside the community. The collective creates a safe space for the discussion around afro hair – on personal, societal and political level.
Nowadays in addition to the yearly GHD event, the team also visits and trains different organizations to spread knowledge. The collective brings together AfroFinns, strengthening the community and the wellbeing of its members.
