Regulations currently ban cornrows larger than a quarter of an inch in diameter and all forms of dreadlocks and twists. This led one woman to start a White House Petition against them. Its author Sergeant Jasmine Jacobs says that it leaves women with natural, curly, or kinky hair at a loss. “I talked to my first sergeant, and he said we would [face non-judicial punishment] if we’re out of reg,” she told the Army Times. “So I either get a wig or be NJPed, all because of the way my hair grows naturally.” A complaint was also lodged by the Congressional Black Caucus.

So yesterday it was revealed that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered a militarywide review of hair rules and regulations.

Styles like this are banned:

    Then ban ALL hairstyles and say 'You must shave your head down to an inch and a half or can have a ponytail no longer than 7 inches' or whatever.

    Yes it is about being standardized but it is also about having that cover fit your head without getting a size 10 to go over your braids.

    In the end I believe these regulations are unfair and need to be reviewed.

    black women have had it bad in the military.

    🤬 male e-7's acting stupid over hair.
    telling them they should just straighten it.

    you know there was a time where they were trying to Art-15 black females that shaved their heads?

    this was back when eve was still hot and every chick wanted to look like her.

    oh that 🤬 them white boys the 🤬 off...

    they can't win.
    they tried to stay within regs and still got 🤬 over by white christian values which at the time superseded any regulation.

    Thats why i had to get out man. I knocked out a 🤬 e-6 and got AR-15. They kept 🤬 with me so I pulled a family care plan on they ass and got out before i end up getting put out.

    i beat the company XO's ass behind closed doors and had everyone in the staff room thinking he was whooping my ass... cause i everytime i stuck that 🤬 i screamed like he was beating my ass.

    see thats how i shouldve done it. All the other sgt. were telling me i went about it the wrong way. But they were trying to kick me out but my black brothers came to my aide. So i did tht 45/45 with ease bruh.

    man im still shocked i made it out without catching even a company grade.

    but yeah... there are solutions to just about everything in the military, most revolving around fisticuffs.
    i feel that is what it takes to bring those so far removed back down to reality.

    my wife had an E-8 (special forces ranger) that wouldn't send her to schools cause he thought she was just trying to stay pregnant and avoid deployments. told her some foul 🤬 . Her E-6 actually told me about the 🤬 dude was saying. i showed up at his office, and the entire shop knew what time it was, i chased that man all around his daggum office with a statue of an eagle with a flag around it. talmbout "lemme just talk to you for a minute"


    LMAO, yea i had to do the same thing. Damn i surprised they didnt call the MP's on you. She mustve been in a crazy unit to let that 🤬 ride. Gotta protect your loved ones tho. Props my 🤬 . WHere were yall stationed?

    Ive never heard a good story about Campbell. My dad retired from there. Said the brass 🤬 on the rank and file so often down there, he could understand why Campbell had such a high suicide/domestic dispute rate.
