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).

Fro feature: Chio

Time for another fro feature! The lovely Miss Chio was the first person I ever saw in my age group rockin a fro in our often youthful hip-hop driven environment. Girls my age with fros weren’t flaunting them daily. If they had a fro, it was often hidden by braids and weaves. And if hair was natural,…

Fro Feature: Daphne

Time to meet another fabulous natural sister! Daphne is one of the Malawians I know living here in Botswana however she currently spends majority of her time in Namibia where she is studying. I only recently noticed her cute red fro and finally plucked up the courage to ask her to be featured. Meet Daphne!…

Fro Feature: Tsholo D (One half of Gatsh Fros)

Soul Hair’s first fro feature! I hope there are many to come! The aim is for us to see African fro bearers that live in Africa and have the same products we do. I also want to share fros with the same hair type as ours which will mostly be extra kinky (4b/c). Most of…
