Eloïse from France // Natural Hair Style Icon

Avatar • Aug 8, 2011

Where are you from?
E:
I now live in Montpellier, South France where it’s always sunny. I was born and raised in Paris, then studied 2 years in Cocoa Beach, Fl when I was in high school. My mother is Cameroonese and my father Italian. I’m 25 and happily married to Alister, a half Cameroonese half Jewish Moroccan. We have two wonderful little girl Kélis and Naïa. I have a degree in sociology, after that I got a beautician’s license and now I’m a professional baker. We’d like to open our own bakery, and hair is a family affair. 

What is the natural hair scene like in France?
E:
Well, it’s a little tricky because of the France’s past. We have two main black populations, the West Indians, from Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion, and the African. The West Indians are former French colonies, and their ancestors were slaves. Then you have the African from the old colonies, some come directly from Africa, and some have been here for 2 or 3 generations.

For my final study to receive my sociology degree I decided to focus on the “globaliasation of occidental beauty”, and I’ve found a lot of very interesting things. I’d say, based on my studies, West Indians in France categorize hair by texture, from the most beautiful to the less (or ‘the straighter to nappier’.) I think the way they see hair is similar to African Americans.

On the other hand, African culture is a little different, they do braid a lot themselves, and see no problem with wearing wigs or extention, and are more exuberant with their hair styles. But natural hair is mostly worn by West Indians. Africans can generally appreciate curly hair on bi-racial girls for example, but few wear it themselves. For bi-racial girls, I’d say it’s half-half.

Why did you go natural?
E:
I should start by what made me straighten my hair. It was back in 2000, just before my big trip to the US. I really wanted to look like the girls on videos, like Aaliyah, because I was a big fan. Plus everybody was telling me I would look so much better, so I did. I’ve been raised by my Italian family side, so my image of beauty was based on what I saw everyday, which was straight hair, plus I thought it would be so much more convinient at that time. My hair was always tied up, and hidden, and people were making fun of my large forehead all the time (which is very significant of my mother’s ethny, the Bassa). I figured that way I could have “longer” hair, a bang and untied hair.

I had a lot of success abroad, my hair looked pretty good there. But then I came back to France for holidays, and it was impossible for me to take care of it. My curly hair was coming back, and the straightened hair was starting to look like rat tails to me. I had breakage, and my hair wasn’t shiny at all. A pure nightmare. I realised my natural hair was so much better and I really missed it.

I was kinda scared to do the big chop, because I was afraid of my white American boyfriend’s reaction, what would he say? So I did nothing, and came back to the US, it really looked messy. I braided my hair a lot, and back in France I really couldn’t stand it anymore. So one day I was undoing the braids, my cousins where over, I told them to cut anything that wasn’t curly. T’was a pleasure to them, as I watched my poor hair falling on the floor, I told myself it was the first and last time I would do such a massacre.

It is really funny, because I always thought girls with natural hair were so pretty, and I was telling myself I would look like a clown if I did. I had to fight against myself to accept it, and find it beautiful and attractive. I remember that day I came out with my natural curly hair to go to school, I was so scared, but everyone liked it, and I had a tons of compliments for a month or so. Wearing my hair natural affected me in the way it made me shine and reveal who I was inside, it’s like I just realised I was multicultural, and that I had to be proud of it.

How would you describe your hair?
E:
Curly, fluffly and healthy. I think it is the best part of me.

What’s your regimen?
E:
Well, I wash my hair with not too hot water every 7 or 10 days with aleppo soap, or an organic shampoo with shea butter, avocado oil and orange zest. Then I spray a mix of mineral water, avocado oil, tea tree essential oil and cider vinegar to remove the limestone in the water. I apply a homemade cream my brother-in-law makes. I make my hair a beauty mask simply with coconut and jojoba oil once a month. I also like to use Lush products.

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
E:
Untied it, and not wash it too often. It is also important to me for my daughters to see that I like my natural hair. Yes, the most effective thing to do with my hair is loving and respecting it.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
E:
Sure, here is our cake blog: www.ladinette.net
Or my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1072083286

Hi Eloise!
Luv. Luv. Luv. Your family looks so beautiful, and happy. Your hair is just fabulous. Also love your style. Could we hear some more about that?
Which products from LUSH do you use? How easy is it to get products in France or do you stick to your brother’s mixology?
Could we hear some more about your research on West Indians and Africans in France? Really curious. Do you have a link to your work?

Yes, i’d be glad to share with you anything you want to know!

About Lush products i’m using the H’suan wen hua mask and also the coolaulin conditionner.

Hair products aren’t hard to find, but chemical products are what you’re gonna see in all Afro Hair stylist. I like to buy hair care from Melvita, it’s an organic brand, i used to work for them, the products are really effectives.

Unfortunatly, my computer broke down two years ago, and all i had in it is lost, but i’ll be really glad to tell you what i know.

I’m from the english-speaking West-Indies, and I’ve always found it so fascinating that to a certain point, there was a similar origin, colonization history and experiences in the french‑, english- and spanish Caribbean. The differences however are so striking and I wonder sometimes at how that affects culture and mindset of the following generations. I cannot assume that someone from the French West Indies would have the same culture/cultural values as I would. What sort of cultural value differences (esp about beauty, femininity, etc) did you find? Another burning question that I have is about your husband: Did he grow up… Read more »

Ok, well, i didn’t go very very deeply into that part, because i accentuated my search on french spoken countries and the US. But at the begginnig of my search, it appears that french West-Indians have more problems with identity especially about beauty. Cause there happen to be more categorization, based on skin tone and hair. About Alister, i was born in Cameroon, then they all came to live in Ivory Coast untill he was 12, because his father taught maths in french high schools. When he came to France, eveything was difficult, he had an african accent, he was black… Read more »

Yes, i had good results with Melvita’s, that shampoo for extra dry hair is just fine and teh conditionner works for me as well. But don’t buy their oils, because it WAY too expensive for what it is.

It’s been all about light skin and long silky hair for a long time.

Nice photos. Love her hair color. I am always saddened when I read black people explaining so much about their ancestry as if an explanation is needed. It is almost apologist. As if they are saying, “I have this melanin because.…” I simply do not see other skin colors feeling the need to justify or explain their skin color. For the many blacks claiming Jewish, Irish—I just never see or read about Jews or Irish people claiming black ancestry. In any event, everyone obviously should be comfortable and whatever self identification to make their life easier—but really. And historians say The… Read more »

Um.… I think she mentioned those things because they had relevance to her story. She mentioned at one point that she loved straight hair because she was raised by her father’s Italian side, and that going natural, for her, was an embrace of her multiculturalism. I sensed no malice or condescension in her words. I think that black people take it to far when they demand that bi-racial people can’t mention the “other side” of them. Like, the FACT/REALITY is that she is half Italian and half black. Why is it seen as a problem if she states the facts of… Read more »

Vanisha, if you’re talking bout me, mentionning Alister was Maroccan Jewish, it’s because it is not the same culture at all, and they don’t live in the same place in Marocco. Even if it is a religion here, it is really part of a culture.

judaism is not seen as “just a religion” like other religions (ex. christianity, islam etc that you just join if you believe in it) because they believe that the “jewish-ness” is passed down genetically through the mother’s line.
that’s why people often refer to judaism as an ethnicity.

Just know that it’s really different livig in France in the US because we don’t have the same culture or past. Just like the West Indians, African-American used to be slaves. You don’t ask a West indian his origin, because you suppose by definition his ancesters are Afrcans.

This is so random, but Eloise’s mention of using LUSH products sparked this question: is it true that parabens are banned in Europe? I heard this somewhere, yet I continually see parabens in products — including LUSH (and many others). Just curious…

Thank you for sharing your story. Your hair, you and your family are beautiful…stunning really. Our story for natural to straightened to natural is similar.

I should start by what made me straighten my hair. It was back in 2000, just before my big trip to the US. I really wanted to look like the girls on videos, like Aaliyah.” That is EXACTLY why I straightened my hair in 1999 in college. I wanted my hair to swoop to the side like Aaliya, and I wanted to cover my big forehead as well…then cut it like Mary J. Blige.

Hello Eloise,

Nice stummbling onto your article. I was pleasantly surprised to read that your family is part Cameroonian because I was born there and still visit my extended family there from time to time. I’m currently transitioning to natural and I’m happy there is a large supportive community online. Going natural is surprisingly difficult within my Cameroonian community as natural hair texture is still not readily viewed as beautiful. That’s not going to deter me though. I know it’s beautiful and that’s what matters. Thanks for your post… 🙂

Beautiful family! Tres jolie! I have to ask — has anybody ever mistaken you for an Ethiopian/Eritrean? Something about you face just looks like it…
