Natural head Family

I went to visit my 2 nieces yesterday. They both stayed with the same friend. My sis's daughter N came from the U.S. She's married to a lovelyAA man and has a little tot.

This is the tiny tot S with her natural coily curls in all it's glory. She's just too cute...


This is my U.S niece's hair. She's ALL natural and has been for years. And yes this is ALL her own hair...Flat ironed. I ran my fingers through it and it was silky and soft! It's actually a lot thicker than in the pic. I won't go near heat myself, but if straight is your look, doing it without chemicals is the way to go. I don't slate anyone using heat bc hey my 2nd daughter, (chemical- free...erm if you don't count dye), has curly/wavy hair- all natural and is best friends with her hair straightener. So let's not split hairs about natural, napptural etc I'm just glad we can all look at relaxers/perms with the side-eye Lol.




This is my France niece N who lives in...Nice hehehe. My brother's daughter. She's married to a french'broni' and has a 5yr old daughter M. N has locs. Her hair is simply amazing. The thickness, the texture....She's had a variety of styles from twists,locs,closecrop,afro,now locs again. It's clear she's heading for a lion's mane!






This is the sideview of N's locs. Nice eh.



Me and N. I can't believe these kids now have kids of their own. I mean it was just yesterday I was changing their nappies , combing and plaiting their hair.....

i guess we must have done something right somewhere,somehow, along the way cos both my daughters, and ALL my nieces shun relaxers/perms and are natural.

Hi Anthia-ofo, I'been visiting your blog for over a year now and I must say I really love your hair, your style and the words of wisdom you share with people everyday. I live in Ghana at the moment and even though I know you were just visiting, I was wondering if there is anyway you can get me in touch with someone to retighten my sisterlocks for me. I have had my hair done once by Ama but misplaced her number and now I am in dire need of someone good who can help me. If you can help, kindly send me an email at gina.warmann@gmail.com. Thank you.

Hi Gkaren, nice to see you here. I think I have Ama's contact somewhere and will email that to you. If she's not available, I have a local hairdresser in Sakaman who knows how to tighten locks with the interlocking method using a latch-hook or yarn needle. She did me and daughter's locs in march and it was good.
