News feeds have been filled with conversations about school hair regulations this past week. Social media has been ablaze unpacking the controversial subject of neat and natural hairstyles after school children protested the outdated rules. Their argument – African children should be allowed to wear their hair naturally and be proud of their Afros without feeling bullied into using harsh chemical to straighten their hair. South Africa stood behind them, arguing that a natural Afro hairstyle still looks neat and smart, and children shouldn’t have to hide who they are because of rigid rules.

Nugget Shoe Polish decided to join the conversation and stand with the students, getting behind the Pro Fro movement. Nugget as a brand has always supported smart, neat appearances, and so they wanted to make a bold statement in support of the students, stating that a natural appearance looks just as polished.
