I’m a News Reader and Producer for probably the most famous broadcasters in the world, which is just as well because I love news be it local, national or international.
“WITHOUT THE BIG CHOP”
My other obsession of late is my hair. It all started when I decided to natural.
Unlike most on the ‘natural’ journey I’m doing it WITHOUT the ‘BIG CHOP’ (American for cutting it all off!).
“THE MYTH: AFRO HAIR CAN’T GROW LONG”
As well as having a full head of natural hair, my aim is to maintain my bra strap length hair from start (2009), to finish!
I also want to dispel the well trodden myth that afro hair can’t grow long. Many people will even tell you that their afro hair does not grow at all. I’m no trichologist, but against the odds I have researched how to: grow healthy natural hair, maintain two textures, avoid breakage and not just maintain my length, but now have even longer, long hair!
“THIS IN NO WAY MEANS I DISLIKE RELAXED HAIR”
Although I have chosen to ‘go natural’, this in no way means that I dislike perms and relaxers (on adults). In fact I believe you can have healthy looking chemically processed hair if you know how to look after it. Saying that, it’s not for all hair types and no matter how well you try, if your hair/scalp does not like it, it does not like it, and thus is likely to result in burns and hair breakage.
Thus I will be bringing you info on all types of hair even synthetic wigs too!
“NOT JUST HAIR”
So along with hair I will aim to bring you a regular diet of health and fitness information. Although we are skin and bone like any other women, we have a different physiology. Therefore it is often found that important information about health and fitness given out in mainstream press often applies to ‘us’ in a different way. I will do my best to bring you the African/Caribbean version, as and when I track it down.
It’s worth adding that the views I express on this blog are mine, and not those of my employer.
