I just lately got here throughout and article on AllAfrica.com the place the daring declare was made that ladies of Zimbabwe are ditching the Brazilian weave* and opting to rock their pure hair such as you and I.
That is enormous as a result of historically, and by that I imply because the onset of weaves* and the benefit of its accessibility, ladies in Africa are likely to go for a very good weave neglecting their pure hair.
This isn’t simply frequent in Africa typically, some ladies within the Caribbean have discovered it arduous to transition from their weave* habit both and the considered embracing their pure hair was exceptional ….till now.
Today we have now seen a rise in pure hair on the islands and in line with the article I learn the identical is occurring in Zimbabwe.
What’s much more distinctive is that many of the ladies who do the massive chop both maintain their hair very brief or they go for locs.
We can not assist however suppose that the affect of ladies like Lupita Nyongo, Alek Wek, Ataui Deng and Solange Knowles who’ve worn their hair brief have helped perpetuate this pattern.
It’s greater than a pattern although, you recognize the previous saying, when a girl cuts her hair it means her life will change, effectively life usually influences hair in Africa as effectively. Within the piece written by Phyllis Mbanje, she alluded to the pattern but in addition talked about how ladies talk emotion by way of their hair.
