Adapt the holiday look!

Isn’t it exciting going away for a holiday! New places to see, new experiences to be had, great food, the feeling of freedom, no worries and fresh air! We all want to look our best on holiday and adapt that holiday look.

We are already in July and I hope you have your holiday booked or looking where to visit. There are some top places to go to this summer and I have found the perfect holiday look for us Nubian holiday‘ Queens :).

Wherever you have booked have a great time and have a great summer…….. xx

Black is Beautiful

Black is one of my favourite colours. I’m not talking about the colours of my bedroom but it’s my favourite colour to wear! All my party dresses are black, my favourite eye make up is black, my favourite time of day is night and my favourite type of man has to be tall, DARK and handsome! 😉

Black is sexy, black is classy and black is beautiful!

Black is beautiful is a cultural movement that was started in the United States of America in the 1960s by African Americans. It later spread to much of the black world, most prominently in the writings of the Black Consciousness Movement of Steve Biko in South Africa. It aims to dispel the notion in many world cultures that black people‘s natural features such as skin colour, facial features and hair are inherently ugly. John Sweat Rock was long thought to be the first to coin the phrase “black is beautiful”–during a speech in 1858–but historical records indicate he never actually used the specific phrase on that day. The movement also encouraged men and women to stop trying to eliminate African-identified traits by straightening their hair and attempting to lighten or bleach their skin.

Being happy comes first! There’s nothing wrong with adapting other people’s culture, it brings us together! However, be happy who you are and be true to yourself. Everyone is beautiful in their own way!

Have a good day beauties………………xx

 

 

Natural afro VS. Weave on

The afro is a legendary hair style, the pinnacle of natural black hair that has graced the craniums of entertainers, athletes, historical and political figures alike. Girth, texture, and colour may vary in the world of afro’s, but our love for the people that rock them is unwavering.

But if you have shorter hair, you may not want to wait months and years for their hair to grow out. Similarly, some women may have received a haircut that is shorter than they wanted. In these cases, a hair weave is an ideal solution; you’ll be able to get the length, without having to wait for your natural hair to grow, and a colour that would be chemically too heavy to be done onto your hair.

For a healthy and shiny afro, we recommend #NubianQueen Hair Mayonnaise.

It will Moisturise hair and strengthen hair at the same time. It’s also a great help to sculpt your afro, or any other hairstyle on your natural hair, such as twists outs,  and plaits.

Box Braids are BACK!

The last time I wore braids I was 12 years old. And I have just noticed we can see girls, guys, kids, adults wearing various braids styles everywhere.

I love the versatility of box braids. There are just so many different ways to style them, be creative and the options are endless.  Now I can just see them everywhere around me, in real life with my friends and family, in the streets, and also in the media. Whether you are protecting your hair from the ever-changing climate, tired of your twist-outs, frustrated with transitioning, or if you just want to change it up – protective styling is a great way to protect your hair and make it lower maintenance.

It is also the big 2015 afro hairstyle trend. We have even seen box braids this year on Cannes Film Festival’s red carpet, with stunning Zoe Kravitz.

With Nubian Queen Premium Ultra Braid, make sure you will get this trendy look for Summer 2015. It’s a good way to have a protective hairstyle, original, and stand out from the crowd. 24 colours to find the perfect match, and also to create amazing combos.

Black castor oil: a precious multi-purposes elixir

This oil has been famous in the world over for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil works for all skin and hair types and textures.

On your skin:

Castor oil is a boon when it comes to skin problems like sunburn, acne, dry skin and stretch marks. It also helps evade infections like warts, boils, athlete’s foot and chronic itching. It’s a very efficient and natural way to treat problems like sun burn, warts, yeast infections, fungal infections or acne.

 

On your hair:

Jamaican Black Castor Oil will help your Eyelashes and Eyebrows to grow thicker and longer, and keep them from breaking. It also helps promote new growth in bare areas of your eyebrows caused by over-tweezing.  Massaging a little Nubian Queen Jamaican Black Castor Oil over the base of your eyelashes before bed prevents thinning and promotes rapid growth, leading to thicker and fuller longer lashes.

The high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins and minerals found in castor oil, together make it highly beneficial.

As this amazing product is efficient on both skin and hair, you will retrieve it in Skin Care and Hair Care.

And you, have you ever tried Black Castor Oil, or any other natural oil? And what do you think of this miraculous product?
