Some naturals feel that wigs take away from the whole purpose of embracing our kinks and coils. After all, we went natural to embrace and celebrate our natural aesthetic.Other naturals feel that wigs are a part of Black culture - my grandma wore wigs all the time and had thick GLORIOUS 4 C curls.
Wawili is a Swahili word which means "two people". Wawili Hair is founded by a mother and daughter and as a brand, they're all about celebrating the eternal bond we all share with our mothers - whether they birthed us or simply nurtured us. Wawili hair stands for empowerment, agency and wholesome womanhood.
I don't know about you, but my weekday mornings are pretty hectic. I usually wake up at about 6am and leave my house at 7.45am to get to work by 9am. Guuurrlll...! The #adulting struggle is real! Oftentimes, between a light workout, preparing breakfast and getting changed, I barely have time to do my hair in a complicated style.
There comes a point in life when you wake up and realise that whatever you want is within your reach but no one is going to hand it to you on a silver platter. You must stretch out and get it yourself. January 2017 was such a point in my life.
I hope you're having a fabulous weekend! I sure am:-) I just thought I'd share what's in my Teddy Blake handbag! Ya know us girls gotta be prepared at all times. The only thing missing is hot sauce to be honest! Haha!
So my SnapFam knows I spent last Sunday at "Embrace Your Frizzique" - a picnic held at Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy North, that brought together several naturals from all over Melbourne. It was hosted by Zarah who runs Embrace Your Frizzique on Instagram.
