Remember pretty Olajumoke from Curl Inspiration: Olajumoke? . Well, she forgot to add that she’s an amaaaaaaaazing poet. And she has written a lovely piece on the beauty of the African naturalista.

Do enjoy… And don’t forget to show Olajumoke some love in the comments box😉…

The African woman is an embodiment of magic;
She wears her hair like a crown;
Every kink, every curl, every knot is just magic;
Her edges slay even when they refuse to get laid.

Oh! That skin is just as beautiful as gold;
It sparkles more under the sun, even when getting old;
She ages gracefully and wrinkles beautifully;
It is called the melanin goody.

She acts like a queen, so she likes to win;
She raises her children as princes and princesses;
She treats her husband like a king;
She really is a queen.

She is not just beautiful with great curves;
She is intelligent and a great thinker;
She is a home builder and a great cook;
She is magic personified.

I am a medical student residing in Lagos, Nigeria. I have worn my hair natural(unpermed) since 2013, and here I share my experiences. I'm not perfect, but I believe that natural is a journey on which we are constantly learning.
