My childhood hairstyle, I remember wearing this hairstyle included cornrows from primary to secondary school. Cornrows, Threading style and short hair are the most common hairstyle accepted in government school in Zambia and D.R.Congo. Some of you will recognize themselves in my today story.
Can you imagine it will be more than 15 years I had not worn either African threading style or would I ever thought one day to love them again ?
Ok, don‘t get me wrong, I don’t hate them but I was tired of this hairstyles specially the threading. I don’t really know why but I think because this hairstyle is not often advertised to be worn for specials occasions it often portrayed to be a casual style.
In my opinion it is time to change our mindset and start to embrace this hairstyle which I find very versatile like cornrows, box braids, weaves, etc…
Lastly, please my ladies don’t forget my motto regarding any hairstyle you wear; accessorize always. The hair can be worn for 2 weeks, remember to sleep with a scarf and apply your preferred oil on your scalp when needed.
Do you think you can wear any African threading style for special occasions? Share your thoughts.
