I plan to! :)
I have a high pain tolerance so it just felt like a pinch to me. Other people said it hurt them, so I guess it just depends on you :)
I used to wrap my hair in a scarf at night but lately (for the past month or so) Ive just been sleeping on it, haha! In the mornings I just spritz with a mixture of vegetable glycerin and water and pick out the flat parts. As far as washing goes I wash once a week, condition and finger de-tangle in the shower. Rinse, apply any oil you may be using(grape seed oil for me right now), then apply any leave in conditioner/moisturizer you may be using(shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie for me right now). I towel dry for about 10 seconds then air dry the rest of the time. As its drying I pick it out into an afro then pat down all around to shape it :)
Aw thank ya! :)
Aw this is so great to hear! I used to not be as confident. Funny thing is that taking pictures of myself and just observing my body and peoples reactions to it helped to greatly build and boost my confidence and self esteem levels. Its all about just being comfortable and content within and outside yourself. Study and Love every inch of yourself. Every scar, every stretch mark, every hair. Love it, it’s yours and theres only one in the entire universe.
A collection of some of my favourite images from Another Africa's curated “Shades of Swagger" series featuring Africans from all walks of life, and from all over the continent and diaspora - past and present, all sharing one common thread in their aesthetic - they’re wearing sunglasses.
“Fela Kuti Music is the Weapon” is a fascinating documentary about the Afrobeat legend, musician, composer, performer and occasional politician. The film mixes footage of Fela Anikulapo Kuti performing at his Shrine nightclub, interviews with the controversial musician, glimpses of life at his not-so-palatial Kalakuta Republic compound, and scenes of Lagos street life. Some voice-over narration gives basic information on Kuti’s musical career and Nigerian politics, but for the most part, the images are left to speak for themselves. Shot in color, it’s an important historical document capturing Kuti in stage and home environments that were most crucial to his life and work.
