When there is an issue that millions of people can relate to, it is worth fighting for; for the right to be done.
The Pentagon said Tuesday that the military would review controversial grooming policies that led some to accuse the Army of racial bias.
Grooming guidelines released in late March, known as Army Regulation 670-1, included rules on hair grooming. Among the “unauthorized styles” were natural hairstyles popular among African American women, including twists. A White House petition, asking the Army to reconsider the ban, gathered more than 10,000 signatures.

Thanks a lot for sharing. its a nice hire style.
It’s very nice hair style. I like it so much.
Kudos to Ms. Jacobs who led the efforts to get over 16,000 signatures on the petition. The 670-1 regulation is unrealistic for women who wear their hair in its natural state. Let’s hope the Army revisits this regulation and allow our military sisters more flexibility with their hairstyles.
