Something African, Something Ghanaian

Hey Zamunda!
   How are you guys doing? Hope you are having a fabulous day?......
     So my outfit today got me thinking of somethings and the death of one of Nigerian Gospel Artist Kefee didnt help matters.. i would like to share stay with me.
       Born in Africa (Nigeria) you learn something unconciously, you learn that you are identified with where you come from, that whatever you do or say is a reflection of you heritage or background... In as much as it is nice to identify with your background or culture, it causes a friction in life's event. You cant marry from a certain community because they are known for this and that, your intelligence level is determined my your background, your beliefs and thinking pattern is shaped by the same background!.
       As a Nigerian born Ghanaian unconciously sometimes i experienced dissonance because what am taught at home sometimes contradict to what is taught in school.... For whatever reason i identified with the two cultures and found a way to blend them in...
      But the truth of the matter is we are all one race which is the human race and we are all from one tribe which is God's tribe *no matter the religion you choose to practice*.... Having said that, i strongly believe that trying to identify with 'your people' should not be your struggle. IDENTIFYING WITH GOD IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!!!!!....
        No matter the background you come from if you dont strive to have a better relationship with God, am sorry but you wasting your time, because at the end of the day non of that matters but how you take your walk with God...
        A lot of the famous people in Nigeria and the world have being dying of late and i ask myself what happened to all the fame, all the money and the plenty 'Serenre' that they have??.... *Question for the igbo gods i guess*..... Let me pause here and keep the rest of my thought to myself.

   
      I know i have been talking too much so let me get to the 'marra'... According to the post title its something African, and something Ghanaian. I paired my Kente inspired material shirt with a pair of DIY distressed shorts.. So i keep my 'Ghanaianness' but with a lil twist of western touch!. Hope you likey!.
    Talk Soonest xoxox TEGA BAAH














The weather wont let my picture lightening be great!!!!!

Quote of the Day:
     And the Lord said to me, Do not fear him, for I have given him and all his people and his land into your hand; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon. Due 3:2

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.


YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way)..
