Yours truly- kinki Fashion
NATURAL HAIR is art, it is my art. Its like the canvas, you have to be romantic with it, be persuasive, gentle and VOILA, you have an art burst that would have people turning heads. Once upon a time, I lodged my hair into a style called MULA [a high-up pony tail] but owing to the fact that my hair is still natural, the tips busted out into a beautiful art of tamed kinki. I had comments and turns my very own red carpet...LOL
According to Estrella Gada, “Natural hair is not a movement, it is not a political ideology or an academic discourse. It is pretty much the same way race has been prodded and analysed, black hair is also being guided into the racial discourse and its fine except that many people seem to make the mistake of assuming that natural hair is about making some sort of statement about who you are, it is not. A woman should wear her natural hair because she has come to the realization that her beauty includes her hair and can’t be defined for her by people who do not understand other concepts of beauty but their own. African writers, musicians, artists and other artisans tend to carry their natural hair as a statement that borders on defiance. It is because they have come to accept who they are. So in essence, not perming your hair is simply someone accepting that they like that kinky hair is unruly, difficult, slavish and burdensome.”
Omoni Oboli a Nigerian actress, wife and mother of two and Chimamanda Adiche, a new generation Nigerian writer are two Nigerian that have the natural hair fame as their fashion statement. The peculiarity of the way they take their hair-do makes is admirable and has a soft echo on the fashion they represent. I am particularly in love with the simplicity and dexterity of their statements is what I like to would call Sophisticated.
