I love any action that would propel and push women to a greater and a higher position in our current fast paced world and also have at heart anything natural.This is what has made me love women with natural beautiful African hair.
I remember when growing up at La – Bawaleshie within the East Legon environs in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency of Accra, Daavi my Mum as she is affectionately called would ask me to buy her a black thread for braiding of her hair.When she is done what I normally see is a beautiful African mother.
This attitude of Daavi made me fell in love with ladies with natural hair. To me when a lady has a natural hair I see the real African woman showing the whole world what we have as African Black women.
As a young man I want to share with you how I see natural hair and benefits even though there are millions of women who are natural not oriented. my observations so far has it that women who have no natural hair envy their pals with the natural hair.
To me I know most black women spend much of their hard-earned money on maintaining the hair weekly or monthly at the salon which is expensive since they want to manage their hair but going natural would not cause you this.
I know going natural help black women a lot because there are many benefits to that since they get healthier hair. Women with natural hair would not run when it starts drizzling or raining outside.
I remember a close female friend called Akosua Brago who used to stay in Asante Mampong when I practiced my Broadcast Journalism profession in the municipality of the Ashanti Region. Akosua can rock a wash and go, a perm rod set, twist out, high bun protective style in a week with ease all because she has a natural hair.
she told me she can scratch her head relaxed without thinking the relaxer would burn the scalp it itches. She is always relaxed when dealing with the hair and always ready for any occasion be it wedding, naming ceremony, party, funeral or church going.
From the little experience and know how, going natural would spare the Ghanaian or African women the hurdles of hair dryers and matters that comes with it. women sometimes during conversations do complain to me about how they feel during hair drying with the machines at the salon.
My Grand mother, Kumesina once told me that when a woman braids the hair naturally and dressed in the African Kaba style, a man would dare not lose focus on her view in town because the beauty in her is depicted all over.
Honestly speaking I love it when women go the natural way with their hair because I believe the Creator is a natural Heavenly Being.
