I stereotyped Africa. I did.
I thought that on a majority and indigenously black continent, natural hair would be celebrated and commonplace.
For a whole week on this blog, we displayed and discussed styles from “the motherland”, which I guess I kinda put forth as the cradle of natural hair ingenuity.
Which is why I came to a screeching halt when I read this in my interview with Miss Fizz (a native Nigerian now living in Ireland.)
Nigerian ladies, if you’re out there, break this down for me. PLEASE break this down…
***update @ 12:01 p.m. Monday… I am amazed at the discussion this post has sparked. I won’t be updating today, so that the post can get its due attention.***
