I have never ever understood this kind of reasoning. You might have to conform to get in, but once you're in you can work to change the culture and maybe make things more welcoming for future applicants in your position. What you're doing only perpetuates the status quo.
Operative word: MIGHT.
But I truly do not see some firm refusing to provide me with a 1L/2L SA offer over some neat dreads/natural hair. Not all natural hair is as wild as some make it sound in this thread.
Should I need to adapt to get in, sure. But best believe I am snatching off that weave/wig/hair piece after being offered.
What I am saying is that I am not transforming my own hair for the sake of some firm. I'd rather sew-in/custom fit fake hair before I touch what is my natural God-given hair.
