This Is Ess The 'Fro Beauty 5

Photography by Tatiana Karanja

Location – Dusit D2 Nairobi

I think it’s safe to say that I’m not quite the adventurous type when it comes to hairstyles. Don’t believe me? Ask anyone who’s known me for at least a decade.

This style is by far the most daring look I’ve ever had, so much so that Mondy – one of my girlfriends and the sweetest beings to have walked the planet earth – decided to name the hair.

Meet Sharmaine. (Sharon’s Mane)

When I first got asked by Maureen of Amadiva Salon to try a different look and saw the pictures of women in larger-than-life, luscious, natural styles, I was rather excited to try it out. Sure, it was totally different from anything I was used to but I was happy to have the weave installed for a two hour shoot and take it out right after.

If you follow me on Snapchat then you already know the next part of the story: from the moment I started to see the kinky weave being installed at the back of my head, I knew I’d have it on for a lot longer. I couldn’t believe that I was seeing a texture that was so similar to my natural hair; something I last saw when I was 14 years old.

Because of the emotions this new look evoked, I was so curious to see what other people’s reactions would be. What would my parents, fiancé, colleagues, friends say? What would you guys think? I got a good number of messages from people saying how much they liked the new look and a whole lot of gasps too! Understandably, most were shocked, some confused and others not a fan. I actually jotted down a list of reactions from people lest I forget – hilarious!

As for me, I’m quite happy with the hair and it’s definitely something I’ll be playing around with.

 If there’s any of you in need of a salon to help you on your natural hair journey, you’ve got to try Amadiva! While I was having my hair done, two women with long, natural hair came in for their treatments and twist outs – a good sign that they know what you’re doing if you ask me. You can get the weave there and have it installed too.

And if you are a naturalista or just love having conversations around hair care in general, then make sure to stop by the Curl Talk event starring Felicia Leatherwood – a celebrity hairstylist and natural hair expert known as the ‘Hair Whisper’. Some of her clients include Jill Scott and Viola Davis so I know that you know that she knows her stuff – youknowwhatI’msayin?! The two-day event will be on Saturday (14th Nov.) at Sankara and Sunday (15th Nov.) at Dusit, 14 Riverside, from 1pm to 5pm on both days. I’ll actually be on the panel on Saturday so hopefully I’ll see some of you guys there! If you’re hoping to transition to natural hair or just want some tips, then I honestly think this talk will help you out. You can get your tickets here!

 As always, love and love.

    Sharon, you speak to me with this post! I am zero adventurous with my hair, also permed and long. I have always wanted to try something out that would ease me gently into hair experimentation. Bless your heart for introducing Amadiva. You look aaamazing! I love it! December 2015, here I come.

  • Trish

    You look amazing Ess… The perfect epitome of actualizing your next best thing when you decide to get out of your comfort zone. You shd experiment more with your hair gal

    • http://www.thisisess.com/ Sharon

      I still gasp when I see my reflection!

  • http://www.kaluhiskitchen.com Kaluhi’s_Kitchen

    I feel like I have finally ‘met’ the real you… even if this is a weave LOL. You look Gorgeous! And refreshingly different I must say. I transitioned longterm from September 2013 to December 2014 and now my hair is the longest, strongest it has EVER been #NoRegrets. You should consider going natural, it is so liberating.

    {FOODIES: http://www.kaluhiskitchen.com}

    • Yvonne Nasi

      Heehee…Naturalistas always trynna recruit….(said with all the love for a fellow naturalista sista)

      • http://www.kaluhiskitchen.com Kaluhi’s_Kitchen

        LMAO! Always! Consciously or subconsciously… It’s a free world and anyone can wear their hair however they feel like. But as a natural sister, it almost comes naturally (pun intended) to want fellow ladies to experience how amazing it feels to have your hair in all its glorious curls as God made it. It feels so good! I know you feel me girl ;)

        • Yvonne Nasi

          Hahah…I feel you hard!! I’m the ambassador of the coconut brigade, as I show off my fro, trying to preach the natural word!! LMAO

          • http://www.kaluhiskitchen.com Kaluhi’s_Kitchen

            Hahahahaha!!! Coconut Oil>Boys even! Actually, coconut oil>EVERYTHING I SOOO feel you on that.

      • http://www.thisisess.com/ Sharon

        Haha! I got that a lot yesterday at the talk :)

        To be honest if I knew short hair suited me (like Patricia Kihoro’s), that’s what I’d go for. Or just something that would require the least amount of work!

    • http://www.thisisess.com/ Sharon

      I would love to go natural purely because I know my hair will be its healthiest! But truth is I just love the convenience of relaxed hair at the moment. I learned so much from the talk yesterday though – mostly that it takes a lot of work (both emotionally and physically).

      Felicia Leatherwood is also the bomb! In fact, if i could just have her live with me I would go natural tomorrow!

      • http://www.kaluhiskitchen.com Kaluhi’s_Kitchen

        Relaxed hair is convenient, no denying that. But once I learnt to take care of my natural hair, I find it just as easy, almost effortless. And for me transitioning was pretty easy. I did not want to chop coz I have a sharp kisogo LOL. I guess the journey is different for everyone. And under the same breath, to each their own. If you love natural hair, go for it. If you prefer having it relaxed, do you boo!

    Mukami, Sharon Mundia, You always slay, you always put out your best. Today you have just killed it. Right on my lane, right on my street! You don both looks (fro and perm) really well. They all fit. This is by far my best hair post yet! Waaa….LOVE, LOVE, AND LOVE. PS: I had to address you in all official names to make this sound as serious as it is. :) :)

  • Sue

    That weave is very well done. I would never have known it isn’t your own hair. Just lovely! And I’ll join all the others in saying you really should consider going natural. Believe it when I say maintaining it isn’t as hard as it seems especially since you have access to some great stylists. If you can pull this off so effortlessly, think of all the other styles you could try with your own hair :).I also love the outfit. For me this post is a gem.

  • Ron

    Gorgeous. I love it Sharon.

  • Rahmo

    Wewe!!!! loving the hair,the gal, the smile,the dress :-) :-) I will be honest,I saw this yesterday and before I learnt the story I was so happy like yes!!!!!!!!!! my hair problems are finally solved because she has gone natural and now I can just easily follow Miss Sharon’s natural hair regime because currently with the exception of one or two products I use products you shared on your hair stories, then I learnt it was a weave and thought how real it looks :-).

    Sharon you look amazing. This post just did it for me. #naturalgirls #curlygirls Women need to know that its a good thing to embrace their natural hair. I only started documenting my journey last week http://karolynklaire.com/

  • Cassie

    Seriously Sharon? You’ll be sitting on a Natural Hair panel discussing
    natural hair care when you’re NOT natural yourself? Your hair is relaxed
    underneath but an afro-textured hair wig/weave is all you had to sew on
    to transform yourself into a natural hair care expert? Do you think
    you’re being fair to your viewers/followers?

    What do you know
    about detangling, protective styles, moisturizing, deep conditioning,
    the right way to detangle, shampooing, cowashing natural hair e.t.c.? Do
    you really think you’ll do the discussion ANY justice? I’m beginning to
    lose faith in you because it seems like everything you get involved in
    is not coming from a genuine place…but is just a commercial move from
    you.

      **** OPEN LETTER TO SHARON MUKAMI MUNDIA….. LETEIPAN. ****

      Hey Sharon,
      please don’t block my IP address as I rarely comment much but this is going to
      be a long, heartfelt and honest one, equally from a fan. I’m not here to attack
      you. <3

      1. Firstly, Cassie (the commenter above), ”if you're beginning to lose
      faith…" welcome to the club. I'm sorry you didn't realise this was a
      commercial train earlier on, you bought into the brand, and now that you're
      realising she's overexposing herself due to placements everywhere, even
      industries in which she lacks expertise, you're disappointed. You feel
      disappointed because you've consistently invested your time following her,
      being inspired by her, but as you're starting to discern the truth, perhaps the
      blog's novelty is wearing off in your eyes. Relax, it's normal for a fan to
      feel betrayed when their idol starts selling out. I think its called fan
      burnout, like how you’ll get tired of listening to a Beyonce track after
      playing it several times, not listen to her for about a week, and then you’re
      back to jamming to her again. It’s normal Cassie.

      2. Secondly, this is where I get protective of my fellow Kenyan sister Sharon.
      I think it’s time we as fans separated Sharon the person, from This Is Ess the
      brand. We all have to remember that Sharon is a young woman with so much to
      learn about, so many experiences, both good and bad, that she is yet to go
      through, and as fans or otherwise, we should respect that she wants to
      experiment in different arenas until she finds a niche that suits her. For now,
      yes, she's all over the place, from hair, to travel, to fashion, and I guess
      unfortunately, what ends up happening is that she attracts a DISLOYAL audience
      due to the mixed signals sent when she tries to be an expert in everything as
      you've mentioned, Cassie.

      3. Anyway, Sharon honey, I know you don't like being told what to do, that
      you’re a control freak on how to do things ( or so I've heard) , but maybe it’s
      time you acknowledged that your brand has evolved, and in order to scale up,
      you may need to make some critical decisions about what your brand represents
      if you want it to GROW further especially in the coming year, as now all eyes
      are on you. Whether you like it or not, your decisions or lack thereof will be
      publicly judged and commented upon for pretty much the rest of your life, so
      its up to you to decide what next. I think what’s happening is that in a bid to
      gain as many followers in order to earn money, you end up alienating your
      already well established fan base. its the 80-20 rule, 80% of your engagement,
      will come from 20% of your fans.

      As a fan, it’s been nothing but beautiful to watch so many opportunities come
      up this year for you since you blew up (my 12 year old cousins read your blog)
      and that you want to exploit as many as possible in fear that they won't always
      be there or some younger blogger will grab them. it’s competitive, I get it.
      But perhaps this is your time to develop a strong female Kenyan VOICE, that
      even our granddaughters can one day come back to this blog and see the path
      that you paved for them. This so much more than lifestyle blog now, and I don't
      think you realise that. It’ll be sad if its too late to see the power you hold.
      If you start thinking about the long term and start looking at your blog as a
      body of work which in hindsight will leave a legacy, hopefully that will help
      you also relax a little in terms of accepting all kinds of deals in the name of
      staying relevant or on top.

      It's tough being on top, I know you have so many naysayers, like Cassie's
      comment above, but this is only because your energy is so powerful my dear and
      your fans want you to succeed. In fact, I wouldn't take it negatively what
      Cassie has said, or what I’ve said, I wouldn't try and block IP addresses (I
      hear you do that), I'd just look at it as someone fighting for my side, and
      checking me whenever I'm slipping, which is what real fans/friends do. Do you
      get what I mean?

      You probaly wouldn't reply to this, if you do, you'll be proving that you
      really still are the Sharon we fell in love with, but if you don't we also
      understand that you have to maintain your brand's reputation. (I say brand,
      because it's clear this is not a lifestyle blog anymore, but a money machine
      exploited both by companies and Sharon herself, and this completely fine too,
      #Capitalism :D )

      Anyway, take care Sharon. With great power comes great responsibility, again,
      what legacy do you want to leave? If you would like to discuss this further or
      reply to me in private Sharon my email is Irenegathoni@gmail.com . I'm here to hear you out, you can even send me an email just ranting, I'm a fan whose here for you.

      Love.

      • Cassie

        Irene, I have never appreciated a response and enjoyed it like I did yours! It’s interesting how you weave your words to bring out a message in the most decent way possible!

        That said, I couldn’t agree more that this has become a commercial venture and has lost its personal touch. I wouldn’t really say I feel jilted or betrayed by Sharon, but on the other hand it’s somewhat off-putting to see her in almost every public venture, some of which she clearly lacks expertise.

        The danger I see is the masses eventually succumbing to an overwhelming overload and potentially losing interest in everything she promotes. Again I really enjoyed your response. Take good care! :)

    • http://www.thisisess.com/ Sharon

      Hi Cassie,

      I was invited to talk about the other side of the story – relaxed hair. I actually think it was a great learning experience for me and wish to have seen more women with relaxed hair there – to learn more about hair care (because detangling, protective styles, moisturising etc. is still a thing that ladies with relaxed hair should learn more about) but also see the emotional struggle around transitioning that some women face. Everything I choose to be a part of is always going to resonate with me on some level!

      Hope you got to attend the event yesterday or will be going today :)

      • Cassie

        Hi Sharon,

        I appreciate your response and unfortunately I didn’t make it for the discussion, but there’s always next time and it’ll be nice to join other naturals. I see where you’re coming from and I understand that hair whether relaxed, texturized or natural, needs prime care. It’s managed differently but the needs as pertains to care are the same.

        I was just highlighting the fact that you potentially stumbled many of your natural followers (and the public) by appearing on a panel clearly intended for naturals. It would also be obvious that in a forum dedicated to natural hair care, nobody showed up looking for information on RELAXED hair care. Why? Because hair alterations and the struggles associated with them actually BORE the natural hair movement in the sense that people are actually trying to break away from that.

        In essence what I’m saying to you Sharon is that you should make sure that whatever you get yourself involved in should come from a genuine place because lack of that could potentially diminish your credibility as a role model.

    You probaly wouldn't reply to this, if you do, you'll be proving that you
    really still are the Sharon we fell in love with, but if you don't we also
    understand that you have to maintain your brand's reputation. (I say brand,
    because it's clear this is not a lifestyle blog anymore, but a money machine
    exploited both by companies and Sharon herself, and this completely fine too,
    #Capitalism :D )

    Anyway, take care Sharon. With great power comes great responsibility, again,
    what legacy do you want to leave? If you would like to discuss this further or
    reply to me in private Sharon my email is Irenegathoni@gmail.com . I'm here to hear you out, you can even send me an email just ranting, I'm a fan whose here for you.

    Love.
