Ti koze ak Afro Alice – S.O.S Douko! Yè m te nègès, jodiya m grimèl!!!

Sou demann anpil manm paj la ak kek zanmi ekip lan, jodi a nou pral pale sou chanje koulè po.

Douko? Ki sa l ye? ki rezon kek moun bay ki fe yo fel? Ki danje sa gen ladanl?

Douko se le yon moun itilize yon pwodui natirèl a leksè oswa yon pwodui chimik pou li chanje koulè po l. Gen anpil krèm ki fèt pou sa. Ann ayiti, gen moun ki konn itilize klowox, pèmanant ak yon seri krèm tankou jèmisida, idol, elatriye.

Gen moun ki douko paske yo gen tach nwa sou ko yo ke yo vle retire, yo itilize yon krem pou ki retire yo ki tou chanje koule po yo. Gen moun ki gen yon maladi ki pa ka geri ki rele Vitiligo ki touche moun ras nwa (tankou Michael Jackson) ki tou chanje koulè tout po yo pou yo pa viktim larize ak lot pwoblem yo jwenn paske maladi a defome fizik yo, gen moun ki douko yon fason pou tout ko yo ka menm koule, gen moun tou ki di yo jis vle netwaye po yo, gen moun ki jis panse ke yo pat dwe fet nwa e ke po yo te dwe blan, kidonk yo fe tout sa yo kapab pou yon chanje koulè po yo.

Moun douko tou paske nan sosyete yap viv la, plis ou gen po ki blanch, oswa w grimel, se plis yo we w kom yon moun ki gen lajan, ki gen renome epi ki gen siksè. Anpil piblisite montre koman moun ak po klè ak cheve long se referans le yap pale de bote. Malerezman, ann Ayiti, anpil moun panse konsa tou.

Konsekans douko ka lakoz se tet chaje. Nou ka site kansè po, sik, fwa ki domaje, movèzodè, po ki brile, yon pil plim ki leve nan figi moun nan tankou yon gason oswa yon bèt, po yo vin mens, asm, katarak, yo ka fe timoun ki kokobe, gwo pwoblem ren, elatriye. San konte, moun ki ap douko a, toujou wont sa lap fe sa ki fe li soufri moralman tou.

ATANSYON

Netwaye po pa douko. Le po w manke ekla, gen pwodui w ka itilize ki netwaye po a san l pa chanje koule w

KEK BAGAY POU N KONNEN SOU DOUKO

Se pa sel ras nwa ki douko. Nan peyi Azi yo, medam ras jon yo pase pwodui pou yo vini blanch

Endistri ki fe pwodui pou moun douko rantre 10 milya dola omwen chak ane nan koze sa a.

Si yon pwodui pa gen HYDROQUINONE, MERCURE oswa CORTISONE, li pap douko po moun nan.

Pou nou fini- se pa djob nou pou nou fe chwa pou moun. Menmjan nou pa di moun pou yo pa met pemanant, nou pa di moun pou yo pa douko! Chwa yo nan men yo! Men se job nou pou nou bay tout enfomasyon sou risk yon moun pran ak jan l sakrifye santel ak moral li leu l deside fe yon bagay konsa. Nou pap fose pesonn pa douko ni retounen natirel men nou la pou nou ankouraje sa ki bon, nou la pou nou pataje sa nou kwe ave nou.

Aprann renmen moun ou ye jan w ye a, aprann renmen w jan Bondye fe w la, aprann renmen sa ki fe w inik e w san parey la. Pa okipe moun ki di w ke po w oswa cheve w pa bon! Aprann renmen sak pou wou, aprann renmen tet ou. Sakrifye sante w pou cheche yon moun ou PAP JANM ye pa vo lapèn. Eske w pret pou w sakrifye lavi tibebe wap pote a? sakrifye diyite w ak bel ti po w genyen an pou w “SANTI W YON GRIMEL, YON BLAN” sa ke w pap JANM YE VRE. Ak cheve natirel, OU BEL. Ak ti po fen w nan, w BEL!

Entèvyou sou fitness ak Dr Mathurin

Semèn pase aprè ke mwen fin poste on foto on demwazèl ki pèdi plis ke 100 liv nan 1 an, m t jwenn anpil moun di’m ke li pa posib. Mwen pat konn ti dam lan pou’l te ka ede’m defann foto a,men gen yon kólèg mwen ki reponn anba foto a e pale d eksperyans pa’l ki pa tró diferan de sa’k nan foto a. Aló sa vin banm ide pou’m fè’l pataje eksperyans li avèk nou e fè’n konprann ke atenn objektif nou nan fitness pa osi enposib ou difisil ke jan anpil nan nou panse a.

Yves Marcelin Borno : Fè yon prezantasyon tou kout pou nou.

Laurent Daniel Mathurin : Mwen se Laurent Daniel Mathurin,32 zan, 240 liv, 1 mèt 82,medsen jeneralis, kowódinatè TB nan Gheskio, papa pitit, antreprenè e on akro a fitness.

YMB : Dpi kilè’w ap fè spó e kisa kite pouse’w kómanse?

LDM: Monchè depi nan adolesans, mwen te toujou fè spó jiskaske a 19 an m vin antre nan fakilte a,mwen kanpe pandan 14 an. Ane dènyè, nan mwa Out,mwen te peze plis ke 300 liv epi nan on reyinion fanmi kouzen’m ak frè’m banm defi poum megri an desanm. M te toujou anvi fè sa e antan ke moun ki renmen leve defi e challenge tèt mwen, sa vin ban’m motivasyon e m vin pran sa trè o serye nan fen mwa desanm 2014. M kómanse fè spó regilyèman, fè rechèch, etidye, aprann e konprann nitrisyon ak diferan jan fitness yo paske pou’m te atenn objektif mwen, fok m te travay di e avek anpil entelijans. Donk se la tout bagay kómanse.

YMB : M wè’w mansyone nitrisyon, kóm nou konnen fitnès pa mache san on bon alimantasyon,èske li te fasil pouw chanje fason’w manje ?Pataje experyans ou sou pwen sa avèk nou.

LDM : Fók m di’w ke antan ke medsen, m trè byen plase pou konprann ke youn nan premye bagay ki te fè’m obèz se te move abitid ak ijyèn alimantè . Pa egzanp,manje nenpót bagay lannuit oubyen fè jounen san manje prèske anyen nan monte desann nan okipasyon’m, pat gen on planifikasyon sou afè manje vrèman ni on kontról. Epi lót aspè a se kalite sa w’ap manje a, si w’ap manje anpil grès ak bagay sikre, tout pral stoke kóm grès nan kó’w. Aló nan ka pa’m nan se te tou 2.

Osito ke’m pran konsyans e konprann sa, m chita reflechi sou jan m’ap viv, pran on desizyon e kómanse óganize m. O kómansman li pat senp paske M vin pa kapab manje nenpót kibó ankó, pa gen afè chen janbe e menm lè m ale nan dine, M’ oblije aprann kontrole’m e fè dè chwa. Men dpi’w konn sa’w vle, w’ap fè tout sakrifis pou’w jwenn sa w’ap chèche a. M vin óganize ak pèsonèl lakay mwen, epi de tanzantan, pi bon abitid ap pran plas ansyen yo jiskaske ‘l vin antre nan woutin mwen e li vin toutafè nómal.

YMB : Apa de abitid manje, ki lót chanjman’w remake nan diferan aspè nan lavi’w depi’w deside fè fitnness ?

LDM :Bon lè’m antre nan program mwen e ke’m ap progrese, m rann mwen kont kijan’m pa t’ap viv menm avan. Li chanje tout aspè nan vi’m. Premye bagay se sante’m, ansuit m pi alèz pou fonksyone, m respire byen, m pi konfótab nan po’m, m reflechi pi byen,m gen lontan plis enèji ak fokis sou travay mwen. San konte m oblije fè nouvo shopping(griyen dan). An plis, disiplin li egzije’m lan parèt nan tout aktivite ke m’ap regle paske’l ban’m abitid planifye sa’m pral fè, analize rezilta’m tout tan aló ‘m vin pi byen jere vi’m(lakay,biznis etc).

IMG-20150423-WA0013

YMB : Ok,jan bagay sa chanje lavi’w la, nou ka konprann jan’l enpótan pou ou, ki objektif ou genyen avèk li?

LDM : Premye objektif mwen se te leve defi a e’m rive pèdi 70 liv nan 3 mwa, men lè’m fin fè’l li vin ouvè je’m sou on lót mond ki se estetik. M te trouve pèdi 70 liv la tró fasil, aló mwen vle transfóme nèt e redui kantite grès nan kóm toujou pou’m ka trase plis e nan 8 mwa pou’m pase de fat a well fit(byen kanpe).

Men fók m di tou ke nan fè rechèch pou konn plis sou nitrisyon, e antre pi fon nan diferan tip de egzèsis yo, rezilta mwen yo tèlman rapid ke moun nan anviwonman’m kómanse mande’m kijan’m fè e kijan yo ka fè sa tou. E m vin gen on lót defi otomatikman pou ede anpil moun pou chanje lavi yo menm jan’m’ap fè’l la.

YMB : Pataje on bèl eksperyans ou fè nan fitnès avèk nou ?

LDM : Nan vi fitness la, chak jou m tèlman fè bèl eksperyans ke li difisil pou’m site youn.Men sot nan konpliman mou nap fè’m chak jou oubyen sezisman ak admirasyon moun ki gen lontan yo pa wè’m ki sote sou mwen. M satisfè anpil lè’m ap gade’m nan glas e realize kantite progrè’m fè.

Finalman youn nan pi bèl plezi mwen se lè’m ap fè spó ak lót zanmi’m(gym oubyen lót spó tankou foutból), lè tout moun bouke, mwen apèn ap transpire e’m santi’m tou nèf.

YMB : Yon period difisil?

LDM :M te gen 2 semèn vakans kote ke’m pat gen posibilite suiv rejim mwen a koz d lojistik kote’m t ye a, m te pran 7 liv ki pa’t vrèman fè’m plezi.

YMB: Ok, e ki konsèy ou gen pou moun ki pa pratike okenn spó e ki pa vrèman veye sa y’ap manje ?

LDM: Pou mesye dam ki ap pratike on move ijyèn alimantè m’ap jis raple:

  • Ou se sa’w manje.
  • Chak jou’w ap manje nenpót jan, se 1è tan ‘w retire sou esperans vi’w.
  • Chita reflechi a kisa’w pral sanble e eta sante’w lè’w gen 40 50 an.

Èske w vle on ti manmi ou papi ki sou chèz roulant dpi 65 an yo oubyen yon granmoun chèlbè an sante ki ka jwe foutból ak pitit pitit li a 75 80 an. Chwa sa depann de nou menm sèl e desizyon an se pa ni demen ni nan on mwa pou’n pran’l, se jodi a menm.

YMB : Yon dènye mesaj pou tout lektè nou yo ?

LDM : Mesye dam ki pè gad tèt yo nan miwa, ou ki oblije eseye tout rad nan pandri yo lè y’ap sóti avan yo jwenn youn ki chita sou yo,ou ki pè montre tèt yo an piblik paske yo jennen, oubyen ki jis pa alèz nan po yo, aprann ke jodi a li konsa, men demen ou ka posede on lót kó ki fè’w plezi(grosi, megri etc) depann de objektif ou. Se 2 bagay nou bezwen pou atenn objektif nou,detèminasyon epi konstans. Epi chèche èd on bon nitrisyonis ak yon personal trainer. E li pi konseye pou’w chwazi on moun ki déjà fè sa’w ta renmen fè a.

Ti Koze ak Afro Alice : NNP – Bezwen Esansyèl Tout Po Figi

Ase souvan gen nan nou ki toujou ap mande kisa m fè pou po m bèl konsa. Jodiya, rete branche pou m pataje ak nou kèk ti sekrè tou senp pou nou kenbe po nou byen bèl.

11009221_10153169447592485_1598489218668527074_n

Nou te deja pale de NNP pou swen cheve.  Men, eske nap sezi sim di nou menm sekrè swen pou cheve a ki se NNP a valab pou swen po tou? Ou ta renmen konn kouman. Vin suiv….

Premye N nan NNP a se pou Netwaye. Koman li aplike nan swen pou figi.

Ou bezwen netwaye figi w le w lave l ak yon savon oswa netwayan ki fèt pou sa (se pa savon santi bon ou benyen avèl la non) de a twa fwa pa jou chak jou. (Mwen m itilize netwayan pou figi Neutrogena. Sa pèmèt figi w pwop epi pare pou l resevwa sa w ap aplike sou li yo.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Scrub

Ou bezwen eksfolye po w tou sa vle di retire tout ekse po ki mouri, pwodui ki te rete, elatriye. Mwen itilize eksfolyan Neutrogena a oswa avwan melanje ak myèl pou m fè sa de fwa pa semèn.

Ou ka fè pwop savon w oswa eksfolyan w pou pow. Nan yon lot diskisyon na ba w reset pouw fe savon natirel ou.

Dezyèm N nan NNP a se Nouri. Men koman li valab nan swen figi tou.

Lèw idrate figi w chak jou, li revitalize po a, li fè li byen dous, epi li nouril. Anvan w aplike makiyaj, li enpotan pou w fe sa. (Etandone po figim sèk m itilize krèm idratan Pond’s ki ble a. M konn itilize luil zanmann ak luil kokoye tou).

371-95835-CremS_300x300

Le w fin eksfolye po a oswa retire makiyaj, itilize yon tonifyan pou ki kalme po a, li repare l epi li diminye iritasyon po a. (M itilize likid tonifyan Neutrogena a oswa dlo flè roz pou sa)

Toujou kenbe nan tèt w, ou ka fè tout pwodui pou w sevi ou menm lakay ou ak engredyan natirèl.

Dènye lèt nan NNP a se P ki se Pwoteje. Koman w ka pwoteje po w?

1- Fè mas ak labou, ak ajil, ak lot engredyan anko pou w nouri l epi pwoteje l kont anviwonman an (soley, dlo lanme, pousye, elatriye). M achte mas ki tou prepare oswa mwen fe pwop mas mwen.

2- Le w ap idratel, itilize yon pwodui pou ki pwoteje l de reyon soley la ( Depi m konnen map ekspoze nan soley san pran souf pou plis ke 15 minit, m konn aplike yon krèm ki gen faktè pwoteksyon SPF 45 osw aplis)

3- Le w demakiye ou pwoteje po w kont vyeyisman two bone, kont bakteri ak kont bouton paske figi w gen ekse pwodui ki rete ladan. M itilize demakiyan St Yves la, swa pa Neutrogena a oswa luil kokoye.

M sot pale nou de tout sa m fè kom swen pa deyo pou ki fe po m bel epi rete bel, men rete de bagay m poko di nou ki lakoz sa:

1- Gen sam manje
2- Gen jenetik

Sam manje:

Le w gad foto a w panse se chiko! LOL. Se kawot. Depi m piti m te toujou gen po ki sansib, kawot se te toujou youn nan pi bon zanmim. E se youn nan sekre pou ki pemet po m ret bel. Mwen manje 5 grenn kawot bebe chak jou (depi m pa bliye). Bonjan vitamin A ki gen ladann ede m kenbe bel po m.

images

Mpa neglije manje ki gen fè(sos pwa nwa, elatriye), ki gen vitamin E ak vitamin D. Gen bagay mwen pa renmen manje, m pran yo sou fom vitamin tankou m pa renmen pwason. Grasa vitamin ki gen luil pwason yo, kom kontinye byen nouri epi po m ret byen bel.

Yon lot bagay anko seke m pa neglije bwe dlo. Dlo netwaye kow, li baw yon ekla. Po w ap plise tankou hotdog ki te fri si w pa renmen bwe dlo! M bwe anpil dlo.

De lot bagay ke map travay sou yo ki pemet po rete bel tou se spo ak domi.

Jenetik

Si w we malgre efo w fe, po w pa egzakteman jan w ta swete l la, asime epi renmen po pa w la ak sa ki fel inik. Tout moun pa gen menm tip po. Jenetik jwe gwo wol nan sa. E nan ka pam, premye bagay ki fem gen po m genyen an se paske m gen menm po ak manmanm. E pesonn pa ka chanje jenetik.

11062066_10153129784502485_6810360127452669091_n

Kelkeswa po w genyen an, pran swen l.

La Presse Française a un vrai problème avec les cheveux crépus.

Kané BOUYON TAïNA

Quand on découvre trois articles méprisants en moins d’un mois sur les cheveux crépus peut-on se dire sans paranoïa que la Presse Française a tellement intégrée le racisme lié aux afros, la négrophobie qu’elle ne s’en rend plus compte ? Je pense que Oui !

Tout commence avec les dessous de bras de Solange Knowles

Solange coiffé comme un dessous de bras, rien que ça

Ceux qui sont noires et abonnées ou adeptes du magazine Public (pas moi) ont eu la mauvaise surprise de découvrir qu’un afro laché serai donc une coiffure de dessous de bras.

Quand on voit comment il est difficile d’accepter le crépu en entreprise, et dans la vie de tous les jours, ce n’est pas une remarque anodine. L’article a provoqué un véritable tollé sur les réseaux sociaux, et la réponse du magazine Public a été… Une bonne couche de mépris, puisque les femmes noires ne…

PROTECTIVE STYLING FOR NATURAL HAIR 101

WHAT IS A PROTECTIVE STYLE

Is called a protective style by the natural hair community, any hairstyle where your hair ends are tucked away from any factor that could damage it (manipulation, environment) to retain length as your scalp hair grows

Some examples of protective styling are the cornrows, the roll and tuck, the bun, braids in general, etc.

WHAT PROTECTIVE STYLING IS NOT

Protective styling is different from low manipulation styling. Finger coils, for instance, are low manipulation but not protective. While there are some hairstyles who are both protective and low manipulation, low manipulation and protective styling are different.

IS YOUR PROTECTIVE STYLING REALLY WORKING?

Your hair cannot be breaking, tangling and falling if your hair was on PROTECTIVE styling. However, it happens to several women with natural hair after protective styling. Others do not handle their protective styles appropriately. In the following posts, we will consider some dos and donts of protective styling

FIRST – MOISTURE
Your hair always needs moisture whether in protective style or not. Make sure you protective style clean and moisturized hair and continue moisturizing your hair while protective styling. If not, your hair will be dry, which will cause breakage.

141

SECOND – SEAL THE MOISTURE

Put aside water, you need to use oils to lock the moisture in your hair. You cannot achieve any length retention without moisture retention.

THIRD- TIGHT HAIRSTYLES

Although some people like to set their hair very tight, it is not recommended for effective protective styling. Tension on the hair causes the scalp to be irritated and to fall. You can achieve beautiful styles WITHOUT tightening your hair.

Bun

FOURTH- LENGTH & MAINTENANCE OF THE STYLE

You surely do not protective style to grow a wild flora in your head. Therefore, make sure you regularly clean your hair and you keep your hair for 6-8 weeks to the maximum. Otherwise, your hair will be matted and tangled which will cause it to break. If you really want to protect your hair, keept it clean and don’t overkeep it.
