'Going natural' with your hair

More African-American women are giving up hair relaxers in search of a more natural look.

Several celebrities have been trailblazers, like singers Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, as well as actress Tracey Ellis Ross, to name a few.

Comedian Chris Rock even produced an award-winning documentary on the topic.

Stylist Octavia Hooks visited ABC7 Chicago to share more on why natural hair is becoming more prevalent and what steps to take if one wants to "go natural."

Hooks also will be taking part in a panel discussion on natural hair Friday at 6 p.m. For more information, call 773-626-4497.
