I was blessed with thick, brown hair it grows & grows and thankfully it’s manageable at any length but I cannot say the same for Sanni’s hair. In no uncertain terms it drives him crazy. It’s this wild afro of curls, knots, and tangles and that’s after he’s put a comb through it. A girlfriend of ours tried teaching me to braid but that ended abruptly when even she couldn’t sit still long enough for me to get the hang of it.
Imagine just how happy I was to come across the blog of Lani Masuku who writes all about how to make the unmanageable African hair manageable on her blog, African Tresses. As she explains:
The freedom is critical as I’ve met too many women who wish they could rock their own hair, but feel imprisoned in the world of the weave, the braids and the wigs.
She sets about documenting the steps to getting damaged, unhealthy hair back to natural strength without harsh treatments or processing.
