Frisée Femme: Jamicka
Hey everyone! Today we are featuring our very first Frisée Femme (Woman Curly)!!
We know this fabulously natural young lady from our church! Enjoy her hair story!
Let’s talk hair! I have been natural all my life. I never received a perm, relaxer etc.. Only chemical I have put into my hair was color (bleach) once I did that my hair had changed in texture a little. Mainly because I was not taking care of it like I should, such as a starting a hair regime, making sure it’s not dry. Bleaching my hair is something I regret due to my lack of nurture.
My hair is naturally curly and YES I am black! Ok, ok I have some Native American in me but that’s wayyyy down the line, people. Each and every one of us has different races within us that don’t know about …. What I’m trying to say is PLEASE stop the stereotypes, black woman can have “good hair” too. Any way’s, my hair is naturally curly, thin and about over the shoulder length.
The hairstyles that I’m known for is a simple wash and go with a little of stay in conditioner, to maintain moisture and to stop frizziness or straight hair by pressing it out with a flatiron. Now I am starting to try something different. I have been rocking big box braids (using horse hair) for about a week now and I love it! It’s different and easy to maintain.
What I love about my hair is that it’s not just about the curls, textures, patterns blah blah blah….. but it makes a statement. A statement that all women are different whether its hair, shape, sizes, skin color etc….
Let’s not judge and make assumptions now people!
Last but not least, whether you going natural or not, stop worrying about making your hair like a certain person because more than likely it’s not going to happen! Focus on taking care of your hair the right way by making sure that it’s healthy. Whatever suits for your hair is for YOU! Not anyone else… This is what makes each and every one of us unique.
