My Hair Styling Essentials for the Littles: Braids

  1. Deke says:

    Oh my! I do appreciate the braiding tips and adding this stuff to my shopping cart but I must share that all Nigerian hair is not alike. It is fair to say Keogena has her Dad’s hair, however as a Nigerian and a mother of Nigerian girls, our hair varies greatly! One of my girls hair is finer in texture, looser curls and basically tangle free, while the other is as thick as a forest and a lot harder to navigate. I fall in between those two textures (even looser curls at the nape of my neck) and have sisters, a mother and cousins with a variety of textures – no white people in our family. Just to share a perspective in case you/your readers are not aware.

      Hi there! Absolutely. There is a spectrum from one end to the other in every single ethnicity and when we were last in Nigeria, I got to see the beautiful spectrum firsthand. My husband’s family (and entire village) has incredibly dense hair and that’s what I’m referencing here. Thanks, Deke!
