    I just love to rock my hair the way it grows out of my head. No shades but I am black African I don’t need brazili an, pourtugese, Indian ,;peruvian hair orishirihi hair covering my BLACK AFRICAN HAIR. My hair fits my complexion my face structure it’s super cute and I love it. I love lamb wool but am not gonna shave a lamb and pin the wool on a goat. Imagine how silly that goat would look. Like I said no shades I am team for each his own. I believe that OWN in this context means no shame for being you, no self hate and the freedom to be YOU. Slave trade ended loooong ago no body got the tight to dictate what’s pretty and wats not. God blessed me with pretty hair. Loooool long rant. ?By the by LOVE THE DO WILL BE TRYING THIS x

      Are you the only one allowed to cough up your opinion here. This is a public blog not your lonely planet facebook page. It’s a blog people are allowed to air their opinion. You sound bitter and twisted and it will take more than just a hair style change to lift your mood. Prehaps its that time of the month or the absence of it. Anyway you might want to try HRT or even a nice man. KMT.

    If your hair can pack in”shuku”,even if it is just a little one, then take an extension,preferably a clean old one(recycle), pack a fist full depending on how big or small you want it. Tie one end wit a rubber band or elastic,wrap around the end of your “shuku”, remember to wrap it tight,when you’re done use Bobby pins to keep it in place. Use gel and brush flyaways.
    If your hair cannot pack “shuku”, take the extension and braid it individual varying in size, wrap around your hair,it would look like a hair accessory, and a safety pin to hold it in place.
    Remember you can mix colours and textures as you please.

    I put a little texturizer on my hair for just 5 mins though it still has the natural look but sure regret it. am going to cut it and start all over again. Natural hair sure needs inspiration and Ronke just inspired me. @ thanks to Ronke Raji. lovely hair.
