Ever cared for your nappy hair so much that you’ve wondered if it should have a particular regimen… perhaps it likes surprises every now and then? This episode’s Nappy hair Pleasure features an adept in living a toxic free life, organic beauty and hair lover Marie Manu.
We moved from the burning grease that made us moan, to the relaxers that relaxed our scalps… so we thought. Today, we’re embracing our hair as it is – naturally.
All women whether white, black, Asian, Caucasian, can relate when it comes hair and how we agonize over how to wear it, to add some colour or not to, and the flinching thought of the hair growing rather slowly if not growing at all.

God is everything.
Music is soothing
Writing speaks for me
Art is at my core
Natural Hair is NOT a trend!
And FOOD is usually ecstatic.
I go by the name Miz Akwele – it’s my name, and there’s also Patricia, Ama, Anowa, and the long lasting temporary name Quarcoo which I’ve been cautioned to trade for another sleek surname, in time.
