Merlot is the word of the day! I have found a new beauty salon that didn’t rip me off to get these hot box braids which were done in about 4 + 1/2 hours yesterday at a salon in Kijitonyama in Dar-es-Salaam.
….in the Black Men magazine cover shoot that is, I know this shoot was done earlier this year but her hair in this picture looks awesome and gorgeous. Say what you want about this woman but she is definitely entertaining and her figure is insane. I’ve cropped the pictures so they are safe to view at work. Check out the top half of the cover below – look at the length of the waves and curls and the look, gorgeous!
Hair is personal to all women especially black women. Malaika is a Danish-Tanzanian marketing officer in London who had several things to say about her relationship with her hair. Charcoal Ink caught up with her for her unique global perspective and how that’s coloured her view on black hair:
On her memories with hair:
I kind of just go with the flow. My whole childhood and teen years was just my afro strapped up in a ponytail as I didn’t have many options. Then I colored my hair blond and got extensions in which was pure impulse. I didn’t really like the feeling of heavy hair on top of my own so I took them out and bought clip-on hair so I can take it out in the evening and wash my hair!
On the differences between Denmark & London on black hair & Afro hair trends:
For more pictures of the Afro Mohawk, please add me on Facebook 🙂 I got this done just now at the local salon – hair wash, blow-dry and she styled it in an afro-mohawk. I have to say, I am a definite blow-dry addict who needs to cut down on how much I do it but I love the results at the same time. It’s so hard! I wasn’t feeling sexy, got my hair down and now I feel GOOD.
I have to say I adore this curly weave. I have had it for about a month with minimal itching and the curls considering the hair is synthetic have hung in there and been cool. I took these new pictures recently 🙂
Definitely good value for money from NOBLE Hair. I will be taking it out soon and trying some new looks 🙂
