so, in our ‘style icon’ series, i want to introduce women with different aesthetics. sensiu, who lives in france and does some modeling in addition to her regular job, isn’t a huge cornrow/flat twist/twist/braid buff, but i LOVE her style regardless because #1, i haven’t seen anyone who embraces their napps so thoroughly! a very honest blogger recently commented on how some nappy women favor twist or braid outs to fros, because they give the illusion of waves or curls. not sensiu! this girl rocks her natural texture to the fullest… and that is very beautiful!
#2 the natural journey has been a challenge for her, but she continues to overcome! sensiu grew out her hair (which she describes as 4z), starting with just 2 or 3 inches, and a very damaged hairline. her hairline is restored and even to this day, as she approaches bra-strap length, knotting and dryness present major challenges. but she still works hard to keep her hair healthy, and continue to improve her regimen.
#3 her straight styles are dope.
be sure to hit her fotki up here.
whoa… TONS of diverse looks coming from one head of hair! be sure to check out sensiu’s fotki page
