    Ah ok I use olive oil and keratin oil sometimes. Oh tresseme I always thought that was for European hair textures lol I also use VO5 hot oil conditioner. Natural highlights nice, are you EastAfrican habesha by any chsnce?
    Erm Idk it's tricky. I consider myself black because my mum raised me and she is black but too has East Indian. I'd just half and half black and Indian but I still just say I'm black, even though not everyone agrees lol
    It's a mis-conception that it's only for white people's hair! it's actually REALLY good for curly/afro hair. (I've done my research, i'm obsessed with hair) ooo that's interesting- so looks wise would you say you look more black? Nope, I'm Nigerian! - Although I am not 100%, I do have a small mix but it's not that significant to me because I am not close to the culture in any way :/ LOL. But it's hard convincing people I'm Nigerian because I apparently look nothing Like it. I've gotton told I look like from quite a few countries, I've gotton; Dominican, Guyanese, Jamaican, Cuban, mixed oriental and black, and just mixed in general really.

    It's so frustrating! And you can tell that most of them aren't actually interested in what you say, they've already got an image in their minds of you eating nothing but salad.

    Now I just say 'the same as you but with quorn instead of meat or fish.'
    That's a good one, especially when you can't be bothered anymore with people's stupidity
    I even get mocked sometimes for being vegetarian.. Just wow :lol:

    So if you're full black African and have that hair then you must take good care of it. I wouldn't be as impressed if you were habesha because their hair generally is like that.

    Well what do you think? Do I look black? I also have hazel eyes so with the skin color and hair I have...No I don't look very black at all, hence people disagreeing when I say I am. I just always arbitrarily said I was black because my mum is, Idk. But I'm fairly light skinned compared to full black African and Carib and then with the hair.

    Thanks, it's that bushy/curly because my mom is part black Caribbean. My dad is full East Indian. You have a very nice texture. That's like a perfect texture. I know you say it's natural but what type of oils or conditioner do you use? Your hair looks wet-n-wavy type, girls get weave and perm to get that texture.




    I wanted to rep this because it's so adorable.

    You're an absolute breath of fresh air, young lady, just saying.
    wait,who are you talking about lol?

    Everyone thinks I'm North African, including North Afs. Never really get mixed race because I'm not that light. Like they tend to be erm you know yellow with brown hair. And our facial features are different, you can vaguely tell I'm Asian. Not so much mixed with white. Like Caribbeans know what I am on sight since most people with my mix are Caribbean, as am I. Everyone else is boggled.

    Oh really, like Moroccan, Algerians? But they are usually fair skinned with straight hair, no? Oh okay maybe if I see your whole face I'd be able to tell that you are mixed Asian and black. Where did you get your hazel eyes from?

    Erm yea like Moroccan or Idk just Arab. No they have curls too looool My dad's side has green-eyed people. He has distant Spanish heritage and I'm his only kid that he's had with my mom with the eyes and skin tone; his other kids we look more similar.No one thinks I'm related to my mother's kids. My mom has dark family being black Caribbean and then South Indian. Like...dark...lol but still clearly Indian because of features and hair. From Madras/Chennai mostly but her adopted family raised her speaking Hindi. We're all over the place lol
