“You Can’t Eat Beauty”

I’m a little behind, I know, but I just spotted this post on Beautifully Nappy. For technical (or/and regional) reasons, I was unable to reblog the video, so I embedded it in my post instead.

If you aren’t already in love with Miss Nyong’o, this is guaranteed to make you fall head over heels.

African Crown

It’s amazing how often we (black) girls transform our looks. Today you could have a long, Brazilian wavy weave; tomorrow, box braids and the day after a full grown afro. You may remember from my post, The Come Back: Old School, that I Co Washed my hair for the first time. This was the first stage of my transition, seeing as I’ve decided to go Natural, without braving the Big Chop (BC).

As I go through my journey of African hair discovery, I’ve decided to keep you all updated and let you know how I manage my thick, full, hard, jet black, afro hair. It will be tough, it will be a challenge, it will drive me crazy, but I’m determined to go natural regardless. The ‘fro may last a month, it may last a year, or I may keep it for my lifetime I haven’t quite decided yet. Regardless I’ve decided to embrace my African side, the ‘fro, the gap and what else it may throw my way. Here are pictures 6months into my transition……


Ps: I just realised I haven’t blogged about NYSC camp! Need to rectify that as soon as I can.

Pps: Sinmi from House 38 is making me a conditioner which I’m uber excited about 😀 In the mean time check out her blog here: http://willwearthis.com/
