Fro feature: Resty Ninsiima

Time to meet Resty Ninsiima! I was supposed to put this interview up ages ago but school, life and laziness got in the way. I did this interview last year just before September. Resty’s hair is longer than most here, eye catching and always very neat so I had to talk to her about it. She…

Fro Feature: Shaun Dinard

I’m back!!!! Finally forced myself to sit and resuscitate this beloved blog of mine. I return bearing gifts though! Time to meet another Baoding natural. Like my most recent fro feature Ricardo, she’s also an island native, hailing from Antigua which is located in the West Indies. She has one of the most vibrant afro’s…

Boys with fro’s: Meet Ricardo

I really don’t know why this has taken me so long but I have finally gotten around to interviewing my fellow naturals here at my university (Hebei University in Baoding, China). My first feature is of my friend Kado/Ricardo who sports a very eye catching fro which is usually what everyone first notices about him….

Boys and fros: Meet Ndiye

Girls are not the only ones who rock mean fros! Recently a few dudes have approached me for fro advice so I thought I’d let a male friend of mine give us some fro inspiration today. His name is Ndiye and he’s a break dancer among other things. He’s had long hair for as long…

Fro spotting at the Gaborone Food & Wine show

So I’ve been AWOL for a while, was out crossing borders but I’m back and I come bearing gifts! I spotted some gorgeous fros and locs at the Gaborone Food and Wine show that took place this past Saturday (2nd November) at Airport Junction. For a recap on that event, check my food blog A…

Talking hair with Dané Mellad

Over the winter season, I volunteered for an exchange program and through it I happened to meet the lovely Dane Mellad. She is African American and happens to have natural hair. Predictably, a couple of our conversations centered around hair and eventually I got the courage to ask her to feature on my blog. In…

Fro inspiration: Bedazzled and Fete de la musique

I attended two events recently where I spotted tons of interesting hair dos and styles. Of course, being the nosy excited person I am, I had to share some pics with y’all! First up, Bedazzled. Read all about the event on Pristine Mag which I also write for. Next, some pics from the Fete de…

Hair feature: Jean

There are 3 people I credit with encouraging me to take the nappy hair plunge, one being Chio who I interviewed here, the second being my cousin Tania who doubles as my stylist and the third being my friend Jean who gave me all the advice I needed hair care wise in my early days….

The nappy hair struggle

I must admit, nappy hair bloggers make the nappy life look easy. And no doubt, for the most part it is once you get the hang of it. We wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t or if we didn’t love our hair enough to jump through hoops for it. But at the end of…

Fro spotting: Ama in a rolled updo

Meet Ama, a close friend of my cousin. She went natural some time last year and she has some gorgeous thick effortless hair. Even in her relaxed days Ama always had healthy fast growing hair so it’s no surprise her natural hair is just as luxurious. She kindly let me photograph her hair for my…

Fro spotting at Clicks Pharmacy

Spotted a lovely red head of hair in Clicks this past week and I loved the colour so much I had to get a pic 🙂 The beautiful fro belonged to Kylie and she had styled it in a cute twist out.Love it!

Fro spotting in the supermarket

I find it very hard to ignore gorgeous big fros when I see them while I’m out and about. The reason being that because of lack of information on afro hair care locally (salons etc) you don’t expect to see many big fros around especially when the hair type is extra coily or 4c like…
