Good Hair Day (GHD) is a collective of AfroFinns. Our activities are led by the for us by us principle, which means that we as AfroFinns define our own means of representation and are actively involved.
With our annual event, GHD aims to increase knowledge in afro haircare, broaden representations, and supports the creation of safer spaces.
GHD started as an urban event in 2016. Nowadays in addition to the annual event, GHD has expanded to pieces of training and working with various projects and organizations. GHD aims to increase knowledge in afro haircare, broaden representations, and supports the creation of safer spaces. GHD brings together AfroFinns, strengthening our community and the well-being of its members.
One of the main goals of GHD is to empower our AfroFinnish community. In addition, our collective supports the creation of a stronger self-care culture, where the individual´s coping mechanisms are taken care of. GHD challenges the existing beauty norms and breaks down negative stereotypes of blackness both within and outside our own community. GHD creates safer spaces for discussions around afro hair- on personal, societal, and political levels.
