Hello Naturalistas,
[Source: Katie Bradley]

Today i want to bring to you hair inspirations for the little Naturalistas. They are the ever faithful natural hair rockers, even through all the saturday dreaded trip to the salon or if you were like me, your head being put in the middle of the elderly woman's legs.

Oya raise your hands, let know ourselves. Did your head get shoved in the middle of the hairdressers legs growing up?

Anyways, as there was so much we could've done about it. Let me just get to the pictures of the adorable naturalistas.

  1. Wow. This is soo cute.

    I am one of those people whose mothers shave our head to gorimapa level every 2 months. So I had no head-shoving experience, lol.

  2. those kids are cute. My mom cut me and my two other sisters hair too. only my two youngest sisters had hair. One of them later had her hair chopped off. we couldn't be bothered. African moms of those time made hair styling very painful, something most kids fear, even till today.

  3. I had my head shoved between someone's legs too:).I remember when I was nine or ten, my mom thought she'd had enough of my 'stubborn' hair, so she bought relaxer. I refused to let her use it on me, crying. So with relaxer in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other, she asked me to choose. You guys can guess the one I went with :)

  4. I went through the little naturalista phase. I wasn't allowed to relax my hair till I was out of secondary school.

    No fancy salons for me, I had my head shoved in between laps week in week out, but I loved getting my hair washed by my mum. If there was an event, I'd do thread the week before. I detested the shrinkage, it was beyond ridiculous in my eyes.

  5. My mother had this Fulani woman who put my hair in the tiniest cornrows every Saturday when I was growing up. She applied a fragrant(read "stinky") blend of cowfat and shea butter in between the lines.
    Between the extreme pain of her yanking my dry locks and the soothing touch of the grease, I never failed to doze off! Good times.
    My primary school was almost Mormon in their hatred of hair ornaments, so I had to save all the ribbons and beads for holiday hair.
