The concept of African beauty is different
Because of its geographical position, some inhabitants of Africa were exposed to a lot of sun and this caused their skin to protect itself by darkening. The skin of African men and women of color has a kind of and richness that no other race possesses. In Africa, the whole concept of beauty is different from the rest of the world. Giving up stereotype opinions is the only way to understand and appreciate African beauty.
In Africa, healthy buttocks, thick luscious lips, big breasts and voluptuous bodies are the epitome of beauty for African women whereas, in Western and European countries, you see models that starve themselves to death. African beauty has its place in the world and the thousands of black beauty products available to black women are a proof of this. Now many beauty brands in the market cater to the needs of dark skinned women. Famous brands even provide top of the line products to enhance the natural African beauty of black women. These brands include L’Oreal, Cover Girl and Black Opal.
For an African beauty to style her natural hair, she must put forth a lot of effort and care. Because of its complex texture, the natural hair texture of women of colour requires a wide toothed comb or the comb will never go all the way through the hair. Using a narrow or fine toothed comb will only damage the hair. African women with naturally curly hair rarely use a brush to do their hair; if they do, they use a boar bristle brush.
