Meet the blogger asking if black haircare products are safe...

Tola Okogwu is on a mission to uncover the truth about black haircare products for her new film, My Haircare Nightmare. A longtime user of hair relaxers during her younger years, Tola later went on to suffer two miscarriages and was diagnosed with five fibroids.

Many have welcomed her investigation, especially after a recent study found that black women are exposed to dozens of potentially hazardous chemicals through hair products.

Tola is currently crowdfunding for the film via Indiegogo, using the hashtag #myhaircarenightmare on Twitter and Instagram.
