This is a shot of me experimenting with earrings to make my Afro up. I think a bejewelled Afro can work and especially for going out for example. What do you think?
I went to the post office today, and decided to stop off at a little tiny hair salon in Mikocheni to get my hair washed and blow-dried [so sorry no pix!]. My scalp is ferocious and I have noticed getting it washed by a professional is the only way to keep it in check. At first, the birds in the salon seemed a bit too relaxed, but this laissez-faire thing is the Tanzanian way, I am learning.
Now, I have realised I have two reasons to go to the hair salon each week:
1. Getting my hair washed: This girl did a great job of scalp massage while washing, which is a very difficult art to perfect. I love getting my hair washed at the salon where the person incorporates scalp massage. This is great. The only down thing was the water was cold, though I suspect this was due to the power outage that affected the whole area.
2. The price: After she blow-dried my hair, she coiffed it into a circular retro Martha & the Vandellas Afro that looked really lovely. I also got my eyebrows waxed, all for 6,000 Tanzanian shillings which is basically £2.50! Talk about stepping into the bargain basement!
Because of the intense heat in Tanzania, my scalp is in overdrive at the moment so I think I will be going to see this woman often to get my hair washed.
LOVE SALON HAIR WASHES!
Looks like Havana brings out the best in Cassie, a former Natural of the Week!

I love this photograph because of the huge colour juxtaposition. It’s like Crayola has gone on holiday. Lovely.
This advertisement is right in so many ways. The gorgeous round Afro, the bikini, the flamingos (I need them in my house if I ever get one, they are fire).
I am loving the positive image of beautiful black woman in this advertisement, and yes it makes me so ready to check out freya’s range of ‘kinis.
What do you think of this advertisement?
[Yes, I know I have posted this picture of Wakeema before, but I can’t help myself! It makes the post make sense]
However, when I see a stunning woman and if I am with someone at the time, I am like, please do not let him see this bird!
Natural hair just elevates a black woman’s face. It’s really hard to describe, but check out this woman called Monique who is featured on Black Girl with Long Hair today. She has a gorgeous bunch of Afro hair on her head. If she was after your man, you better be worried because the woman is beautiful!
Afro-Sexy people, never forget it!
