While enjoying the colorful happenings at African Festival at the Commedore Barry Park in Brooklyn, I saw this striking Afro passing by. As a passionate natural hair advocate I immediately approached Lurie to ask her if I could take her picture. Luckily the answer was yes.

My cousin sent me the link to this wonderful video that I just have to share with you: The Queen of Chess. It brought tears to my eyes.
This wonderful champion with her humble smile and beautiful short cropped hair did overcome al possible obstacles, from being Black, to beng poor female and unducated.
If you have long locs or braids then you understand the frustration of trying to fit all of your hair into those tiny shower caps that are sold in beauty supply stores or in the hair section of neighborhood pharmacies.
I haven’t been able to easily fit my hair into these caps in years. I guess I should be totally honest here. The problem isn’t only that I have a lot of hair, I have a lot of head as well. Unless it’s knit, I buy hats from the men’s section of the department store. Ladies hats just don’t fit.
To protect my hair before bathing, here’s what I do. Before showering, I bend over bringing all of my hair to the front before tying it into a top pony tail. Then I cover the hair with another big scarf. This technique is okay for making sure I don’t get any soap in my locs when I bathe. Soap that gets caught in locs can cause visible buildup.
Like you, this handcrafted piece is one of a kind. Beauloni has a special way of combining gemstones and metals creating elegant and sophisticated accessories for all types of natural hair.
This exclusive set of wedding jewelry consists of a headpiece that doubles as a necklace, and earrings that can double up as hair jewelry.
This amazing pre-fabricated head wrap makes anyone looks like a queen. You don’t even have to know how to tie a knot to be able to wear this.
Yes, you read well. You don’t need wrap experience to wear this elegant wrap as your crown. That is because about half a meter by 2 meters of beautiful high quality fabric that is so usually most difficult to tie, is already sewed into a wrap with Velcro smartly sewed on it.
So putting it on is a breeze and what is even better is that it fits all head sizes.
