Is my hair not natural enough?

Today a couple of ladies said to me they liked my hair and the way I styled it, I extended my gratitude to them and added that natural hair is hard work, immediately they replied explaining to me how my hair is only 80% natural because I dyed it. I was taken aback by that statement and tried to compose my words wisely.

I was so upset by the statement; I really want to know this; does the fact I wear makeup mean am not a natural woman? I really wanted to say more like if they want to be natural then they should strip themselves of the things that make an individual 80% natural.  In fact, why not go out naked and let’s all see you in your natural glory, yeah? (please don’t do that)

Afro Beauty

Not the girl you use to Know?… well, it’s still me, the only difference is my hair colour (obviously lol). I tried going natural once, but gave up very quickly when I realised how much I love wigs, sleek wigs!! I still do. Going natural has been a bit challenging I must add, especially because I find natural hair very difficult to maintain, compare to wearing wigs. I have personally come to realise that part of accepting me, is to embrace my roots, which might be very hard.

Designer Sample Sale

I am a big believer of shopping unique designer items. However, I do not believe in their prices especially as a freelance stylist. So what I sometimes do is hunt for the designer sample sales or normal designer sales, I tend to find and learn more about unique high-end brands (Micheal Kors, Blumarine, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Mayrafedane etc). I love being unique with my style, so as a way to achieve this I find items I love that express who I am in Fashion.

The one and only designer sale is a place I visit to buy designer items, the first time I was there I brought a set of MAWI necklace and earrings for a total of £250 and the combined RRP was £1600, now this is what I call a bargain. This sale occurs every month and the next one is in October, you can follow them on social media but I will be reminding you of the sale closer to the time.

Below are a list of my favourite items and my best buys
