“I wanted to look regal and cultural without deviating from my natural hair. I decided on a traditional Eritrean Albaso braiding style found on brides in that country. Natural hair is dependable and resilient; it was never affected by the hot, humid weather. It remained just as beautiful as it did when I walked down the aisle to meet my husband.”
P.S: The hair is so gorgeous it took my attention away from the dress.
