‘My insecure hubby pinned me down and shaved my hair,’ Cries woman

A city woman has narrated how she was left with egg on her face, by her insecure husband who could not stand men admiring her beauty.

Speaking on one of the popular local station, Rosemary opened up on how she came home fresh from the salon and was lured into the house only to be pinned down and was clean shaved.

According to her, her hubby could not stand her new stunning looks and the imminent attention she would receive from other men.

She says her cries fell on his deaf ears and when neighbors came to her rescue, the man chased them away saying that he was showing love to his wife.

She was forced to walk away from the marriage leaving behind a 9-month-old toddler.

Read her narration below.

Aki nilienda town nimebadilika kidogo eti nimekuja na ka style kangu nimerembeka, niliwekwa chini nikawekwa makasi nikanyolewa na picha ikachomeka.

Hakuna kitu inauma mtu kama kunyoa mtu nywele hiyo ni uchawi! Mimi sikujua nia yake kwani alinikaribisha vizuri na baadaye akafunga mlango na kuniweka chini.

Sasa akiniyoa huku nikipiga nduru, majirani wakija anawaambia kuwa hayo ni mapenzi yake na bibi yake, hapo nikaondoka na kumuachia mtoto wa miezi tisa.

Nilimrudia mtoto wangu na akakataa akidai kuwa eti mtoto mluhya haishi nje na hapo nikakubali kauli yake lakini mimi husaidia kumlea.

Hit Or Miss? Media Personality Grace Msalame Completely Shaves Off Her Hair (PHOTOS)

They say that when a woman shaves off her hair, she is preparing for some serious changes in her life. Perhaps that is why Grace Msalame has shaved everything off.

Earlier in the year, she cut off some of her hair and had faux dreads put in place. This time, she has completely shaved off all her hair and I was caught flatfooted and unprepared for the changes she made. Why? well, because I was scrolling through my IG feed and dropped my phone.

She has decided to go for a short cropped style that I would be remiss if I didn’t share because I want the shock to be received by as many people as possible. Check it out below:

The Color, The Style, The Uniqueness. Embrace Change Without Fear And Get The HAIR That Makes You Feel Comfortable (PHOTOS)

As the saying goes, change is inevitable, and ladies in most parts of the world are embracing the changes in their dressing code from clothes to hair and even make up.

There are many companies that make various types of synthetic hair. Most ladies prefer wearing artificial hair as compared to natural hair since they claim it is much easier to maintain.

Weaves, wigs and braids come in various colors and lengths.

Some ladies prefer having straight weaves that have a fringe so that they may cover their foreheads and they definitely look good. Some ladies have natural long foreheads which to some makes them appear unique but to others it is undesirable.

Whereas most ladies prefer having long synthetic hair, some find short natural hair more attractive. Short, neat well combed hair is much more affordable and easier to maintain. Black or in any other dye colour, it makes one look more natural. It can be simply combed or rolled and waxed into baby locks and accompanied with lines to perfect the look.

Dreadlocks are becoming trendy with them proving to be the simplest way to maintain long natural locked hair. They need less time to be put in place while at the same time patience is needed for them to appear neat. They can be left hanging or joined to form lines. Some people accessorize dreadlocks with Rastafarian bids as it is believed this culture emerged from their world.

Well that could just be a belief since even curvy girls still have them well placed and look totally beautiful. They come in many colors to suit each skin type.

Accessorizing the color of the hair with the makeup ensures a perfect look.

Simple hairstyles for day to day look

When you are having a bad hair day there are simple styles that you could do to keep you looking good before  you head out to the salon.

The Braided Top Bun: This simple do is similar to the summery  ballerina bun. It’s quick it’s chic and it always looks good.
How-to: Start by creating a high ponytail and place a hair doughnut at the base of the ponytail to give the bun a nice shape, recommends the hair genius. Cover the bun with your hair and secure it with a hair band leaving the hair hanging around the bun. Divide the extra hair in two sections and braid each one of them. Finish by carefully wrapping the braids around the bun and secure with bobby pins.

Chinese hair set to conquer Africa weave market

Long, black and lucrative: sacks bulging with human hair spill onto the streets of a rural county whose farmers have helped make China the world’s biggest exporter of products made from the material.

As dawn broke over the morning market in Taihe, vendors bringing hairy wares from across China haggled with dozens of buyers, and tempers frayed.

“We have to bargain for hair,” said buyer Liu Yanwen, 35, who sported a buzzcut and arrived at the market at 5.30 am in search of deals.

“We have a factory where we’ll turn it into products for export overseas,” he added, clutching a head’s worth of straight, thick black locks.

Gao Pu, a vendor whose head was also shaved, opened a knapsack containing dozens of bunches of hair onto the ground and declared: “It comes from the heads of ordinary Chinese folks.”

Prices can go as high as 5,400 yuan (Sh78, 000) per kilogram for cuts of 20 inches.

Woman who hasn’t used shampoo for two years

A beauty blogger who has not washed her hair with shampoo for two years is claiming her hair is healthier than ever.

Lucy Aitken Read, 32, ditched shampoo in the bid to get thicker, fuller and more lustrous locks after recoiling at the amount of chemicals she was lathering on to her head.

Mrs Aitken Read went cold turkey using the ‘no-poo’ method, which involves using only water or natural substitutes instead of shampoo.

The movement is gaining momentum in beauty circles, with many claiming the benefits outweigh the negatives.

Mrs Aitken Read chose to ditch shampoo on the first day of a job in the charity sector, and confesses her biggest worry was that, ‘I wanted my hair to look good’.
