Born With Natural Hair
Just hearing my native accent brings back many wonderful childhood memories. Also, everything about Barbados reminds me of my mother. My parents were both born in Barbados, I'm very glad that I was too! Besides my birth, my umbilical cord's connection to this island is a priceless gift! I attended Four Roads Primary School in St. Philip until I was about 10 years old. Some of my teachers were family and church friends. In 1976, my family migrated to America. I am the eldest of three children; I have a younger sister and brother. I'm so very proud of all the beauty that my lil island continues to offer to the world. I'm so blessed to have gown up in a time when having natural hair, wearing cornrows, corkscrews, plaits and afros was as normal as having my brown skin, a head on my shoulders, two arms and two legs. Growing up, my hair was pressed with a hot iron comb for church, but mostly stayed in cornrows. My father never like that my mother pressed my hair...
Fast forward to the past three decades: After an era of not expressing or experiencing just how good our good hair really is; it's truly refreshing to show ourselves and the world that being our true selves and our standard of beauty is 'simply beautiful anuff! '(insert Bajan accent here lol). ~ Yendys
Spiritual Hair Care
One's hairstyle, becomes one of the aspects of personal grooming and fashion. Some hairstyles are also being influenced by the cultural and popular considerations. The significance of hair on our head is much more than just looking good. In this world, we are the only beings who grow hair on our heads, once that growth starts. If we leave our hair uncut, it grows to a certain length and stops growing by itself. The length may differ from person to person. Hairstyles, like seasons change for public, private and ceremonial occasions. Hair represents the pure thoughts and spiritual status of an Individual, showing the bonds and spiritual oneness of a Family and defines the cultural harmony and spiritual alignment of a Nation. Hair represents the Pure and Spiritual thoughts of All Tribal People.
