I found an interview with Rahkua, an aspiring actress, on Nikki and the City yesterday and was amazed! First of all, the girl is just gorgeous. Second of all, this is the first time I’ve seen a natural rock booth loose and locked hair!
I love this quote from the interview:
“I’ve had locs all my life. My parents have them. My four younger siblings have them… It is a real burden to bear sometimes because of the low acceptance level of them among the African American community who have been striving for the “fried, dyed, and laid to the side” look of straightened hair for centuries… You have to have a strong resolve and connection with yourself and with God in order not to be swayed by the mainstream.”
