Conta-nos um pouco a história do teu curly hair (essencialmente coisas negativas que juravas a pés juntos nunca mais cometer.
Quando eu era adolescente, não gostava do meu cabelo, e nunca tinha assumido de verdade. Sempre fazia penteados para esconder. Então eu resolvir alisar, essa foi a pior decisão, no comeco eu adorei, mais a química destruiu meu cabelo. Após alguns anos praticando o alisamento resolvi ter meu cabelo de volta, eu esperei mais de 2 anos para meu cabelo crescer, foi difícil a espera, mas agora estou muito feliz.
Alguma vez sofreste de bullying (por causa do teu cabelo) por parte de alguém?
Não exatamente, mas as pessoas me conheceram com o cabelo liso e depois me viram com o afro sempre perguntava o por quê que eu deixei meu afro, faziam piadas, e quando conversavam comigo não olhavam pro meu rosto e sim pro meu cabelo, não me sentia tão confortável.
Explica-nos os teus cuidados com o teu curly hair…
Eu tento não lavar todos os dias, por que procuro manter um pouco da oleosidade natural, já que nosso afro é mais seco do que os cabelos lisos. Sempre penteio durante o banho para não quebrar e machucar os fios, eles são muito fininhos, e fujo um pouco da exposição ao sol.
Existem regras que a Sociedade tem que ter perante o teu frô? (ex: NUNCA, DE FORMA ALGUMA, COLOCAR AS MÃOS NO MEU HAIIIRRR!!)
Tell us a little about the history of your curly hair (mostly negative things that you swear never to commit).
When I was a teenager, did not like my hair, and had never really assumed. Always did hairstyles to hide. So I decided to flatten, that was the worst decision at first I loved it, but the chemically destroyed my hair. After a few years practicing straightening I decided to have my hair back, I waited over 2 years to grow my hair, it was hard to wait, but now I am very happy.
Have you ever suffered from bullying (because of your hair) by someone?
Not exactly, but people knew me with straight hair and then saw me with afro and always asked why I left my african, made jokes, and when they talked to me did not look at my face but to my hair, I did not felt so comfortable.
Explain to us your care with your curly hair…
I try not to wash every day, because I try to keep a bit of natural oils, since our afro is more drier than straight hair. Always comb in the shower and I try to not break the wires, they are very skinny, and I run a little of sun exposure.
There are rules that society must have before your fro? (ex : NEVER , IN ANY WAY, PUT YOUR HANDS ON MY HAIIIRRR!)
I don’t care if a person asks gently touch my hair, but some people do not ask and comes directly touching my hair, don’t like, I think it’s a bit disrespectful.
