Sensiu // Natural Hair Style Icon

Avatar • Mar 30, 2009

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

What a gorgeous woman. It is nice to see someone fully embrace their natural hair. It is hard for many of us, and she is awesome. Great inspiration!

@ everyone… yeh, i didn’t mention this in her intro, but sensiu is the very first fotki lady i came across when i went natural. she’s such a sweet person and she really taught me at ‘a young transitioning age’ to LOVE my texture for what it is.

i LOVE her!

Her hair looks great too bad I’m lazy when it comes to experimenting with styles.

Yay! Her hair is VERY similar to mine. I wonder if she has to deal with the kind of ignorance I have to deal with here in the States? I WILL be bookmarking her Fotki fo sho! 🙂

@ sistaopinion… you know, i actually wondered about that too… whether it would be easier to rock something like this in europe as opposed to the u.s.

Ignorance is alive and well wherever you go.……speaking from a Kenyan, English, German, Austrian, French and Belgian perspective. Equally acceptance and appreciation is alive and well — speaking from the same perspectives 🙂
