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.

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.

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.

KWAFI PWOTEKTRIS KI PWOFITE CHEVE W

Jodiya nou pral pale de penyen ki pwoteje cheve.

KISA KWAFI PWOTEKTRIS YE?

Nan kominote medam ak cheve natirèl, se yon penyen ki pwoteje cheve a pou l pa domaje. Pwent cheve w tache oswa pa deyo e nan kek ka, cheve pa w pa deyo tou. Medam yo fe penyen sa yo pou yo bay cheve yo repo, pou yo pa manipilel anpil, pou evite cheve yo domaje toutpandan rasin nan kontinye pouse, le konsa yap maksimize longè cheve yo.

Kèk egzanp penyen ki pwoteje cheve gen ladan ti kouri, chou ki gen bouda poul, chiyon, crochet braids, alonj, ti très ki tache ak tout lot penyen kote pwent cheve a ak ko a pwoteje.

KISA YON KWAFI PWOTEKTRIS PA YE?

Yon penyen ki pou pwoteje cheve w pa yon penyen ki fe w pa manipile cheve w. Se de bagay ki diferan. Se sak fe, yon moun ki penyen pwent peny fe yon penyen ki fel pa manipile cheve l anpil men li pa yon penyen ki pwoteje chevel. Gen kek penyen ki ni pwoteje cheve, ni fe w pa manipile cheve w anpil men kwafi pwotektris PA kwafi ki gen ti kras manipilasyon

ESKE STIL W FE POU KI PWOTEJE CHEVE W LA FE SA VRE

Penyen pou pwoteje cheve w ta dwe fe cheve w pi bel, pi ansante epi pouse pi vit. Epoutan, anpil moun ki fe stil sa yo we cheve yo pa pouse, genyen ki vin gen alopesi, cheve yo mare, tchake. Osnon, genyen ki telman fe yon seri move jes ak cheve yo ou mande tet yo eske vreman vre penyen yo fe a se pou yo pwoteje cheve yo? Nou pral pale de kek bagay nou ta dwe konsidere le nou di nou ap fe yon penyen pou pwoteje cheve nou

PREMYE BAGAY – IDRATASYON

Si w pa idrate cheve w anvan w fe kwafi pwotektris la, pandan ou kite l nan kwafi pwotektris la, penyen w nan pap pwoteje cheve w. Yap sèk epi pa etone cheve w pral tonbe. Fè swen pou w netwaye epi idrate chevew anvan w fè penyen an, pandan cheve w nan penyen an, pa neglije itilize ti vaporizatèw ak dlo ladan. Penyen an poukol pap al fe yon mirak pou kenbe cheve w bel epi ansante. Fok cheve w pa sispann manje pandan li nan penyen an.

DEZYEM BAGAY – SELE IDRATASYON AN

Nou tout konnen si nou annik flite dlo nan cheve nou, nan yon moman anko, l’ap retounen sèk. Depi l retounen sek, cheve a pral domaje donk li pap pwofite de repo w ba li a. Le w fin flite dlo nan cheve w, itilize yon luil pou w sele idratasyon an ladan yo. Cheve sek= cheve kase.

TWAZYEM BAGAY – PENYEN SERE

Anpil nan nou kwè nan penyen sere, gen kek ki di se sak montre yo djanm. Gen lot ki pa we tet li bel sil pa penyen sere. Penyen sere se bagay kap irite po tet ou, rache cheve w epi ki gendwa baw alopesi oswa lot pwoblem anko. Pa sere tet paw, pa sere tet lot moun, pa kite moun sere tet ou!

KATRIYEM BAGAY – KONBYEN TAN LI RETE/NETWAYAJ

Gen moun ki panse yon kwafi pwotektris se yon tatwaj! Apre 6-8 semèn, li LE pou w defèt penyen an, fè swen pou chevew, kite l pran yon ti lè ANVAN w rekomanse kwafi pwotektris. Gen lot ki bliye tet yo ki pa lave tet yo pandan yo ak penyen an. Nonselman cheve yo ap soufri le konsa, men figi w tou: paske tet ou sal, pral sou zorye kote figi w ye epi ba w bouton! Le w resi retire penyen an, cheve w ap telman mare, wap retire yon bel pouf le w resi fin demele yo. Gen yon JAN pou w jere kwafi pwotekris.

Nou swete ti konsèy sa yo ap pèmèt w jere penyen pou w pwoteje cheve w yo pi byen.
