I think one of the most surprising things to me in taking care of my daughter's hair in terms of social issues, was the fact that not all women with African textured hair, know how to do African textured hair. I sort of made the assumption that if you had that type of hair, you knew how to take care of it, when actually, that is not the case. I find myself, as an adult, learning how to care for the needs of my daughter's hair just as if an African American has had done for her, she is also learning how to take care of her daughter's hair needs for the first time in her life.

Rory Hadley

Mom & Blogger

Rory is a wife, a blogger, and a transracial adoptive parent of an African American girl, who joined the family through domestic adoption in 2007 at a mere six days old. A self-described tomboy and computer geek, Rory had little knowledge regarding her own hair, not to mention no prior experience with the unique hair and skincare needs of children of African descent. Making it her mission to learn everything that she could, Rory started chronicling her experiences for other parents who have found find themselves in similar situations. Since the launch of her blog, Chocolate Hair / Vanilla Care in 2010, people from all over the world have been able to share in her journey as she demonstrates new hair styles, outlines step-by-step instructions, reviews products, and discusses the many aspects of what it means to be a transracial family in today's world. Rory hopes to continue exploring identity, respect, and empowerment, using hair as a common language.
