Kambua Manundu was finally blessed with a cute baby boy called Nate late last year after many years of trying to become a mother. Since then the singer has regaled fans with anecdotes about being a first-time mother.
Her messages normally reveal a side of the Rauka host that many rarely get to see as she expounds on the various experiences she is having. Recently, the gospel musician explained how she had had to opt-out of her self-care routine for the needs of her young, growing boy.
In her recent post, the TV host revealed that she has been unwell but she condemns any obstacles channeled her way.
“My eyes look some type of way because I haven’t been feeling too great lately (migraines). But, I remain unmoved by the antics of the devil😪”
But speaking of first-time motherhood and in the current crisis of quarantine, Mama Nate sought to microblade her eyebrows to avoid everyday pencil coloring of the eyebrows. Despite the pain that comes with it, she was glad it will spare her time to focus on something else.
Microblading is a temporary technique for enhancing the appearance of eyebrows whereby pigment is scratched into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, using a hand tool with a blade formed of tiny needles.
Moving on to her hair, Kambua confessed she almost chopped it off because it was proving too hard to handle.
So she sought temporary locks instead to hold her on.
“And then my HAIR! A girl got her hair temporarily locked because let me tell you, Postpartum alopecia is REAL, and if @chimoga254 hadn’t convinced me to lock it, I was ready to get it ✂️.”
Postpartum alopecia is described as a normal but temporary change after childbirth, where new moms notice hair loss around three months postpartum, but it is unrelated to breastfeeding.
