Natural Hair Love Affair
HAIRSTORY- For the Mende people, offering to braid someone else’s hair was a way of asking them to be your friend. Hairbraiding sessions were a time of shared confidences and laughter; the circle of women who do each other’s hair are friends bound together in a fellowship. Is it still like this in your hometown?
