So for my first blog post I will talk about being a being a natural haired hijabi in Ghana and the challenges i have faced and how I have been coping.
So until recently, the natural hair movement has been almost non existent in this part of the world.well not really but it was not a big deal.I say this because growing up we did keep our hair in its natural state especially those of us who went to public schools but we kept it short and we did not really know what to do with it or take care of it, so a lot of us after high school ran to the salon with relaxers to get our hair relaxed.
In my case, my hair was natural up until junior high where I was instructed to chop off my hair like everybody else in the school. So my hair was short and natural until a few weeks after I completed senior high school.i finally got my hair relaxed and i kept it that way until jan,2014 when i decided to go natural.i big chopped after 6months of transitioning. And i have never looked back.it has not been easy though but i have and i am enjoying every bit of this journey. I will talk about some of my challenges in my next blog post.
