I find myself having to explain to people how and why I use organic sarnitary pads, deodorant, bathsoaps and cleaning products.
It’s not the convincing part but not wanting to understand how worth we are. These people who keep asking laugh at me sometimes because they find organic products very expensive especially in countries where organic life is not a day to day life like in Africa and some Asian countries.
What I see going wrong is how we prioritise our needs and therefore use our money. Ofcourse I am not going to name any of it.
I remember the times that I used the general products like dove of any other non organic products you mostly see in the shop. They smell so.called very nice. They stop you from sweating because they call.them non transparant.
So being an African living in Diaspora and being an African using all Western based products. You need to be re educated. One of your families needs to take you to the village for 2 months. So you can experience the organic way of living.
Please read about plastic satinary pads. Before you help African girls. Encourage them to make their own instead. Educate yourselves about how and why so to make it easier for younger generations to understand why they have to do what they do. Yes it’s not easy to adjust. Especially when you do not work from home.
No more plastic sanitary pads
I just realised that’s a lot of Indian people or Pakistanian people who own African shops who sell products for African people have been following me lately. It has come to my attention that if you move into big cities and you want to buy a product for my hair my African hair. There is always an Indian or somebody from Pakistan who is behind the till.
No offence, but
I wonder if these people know how our hair texture look like, if they do they probably have done their studies very well. To my surprise there are not so many African people who push through that market so to be able to they own their rights and the natural products for our hair, my question is why, due to in due to colonisation due to slavery a lot of people changed theire all natural styles to try to become other people than they are in their original themselves and how do we go back there practically without discussing too much. Be your own doctor, to know your own body, to know your own skin, to know your own hair type, Hair texture, your own body how you look like, what kind of dressing you should wear that suits you, as an individual as a society then of course the world.
Africans, the original ones were always organic. It’s so stupid when you think because you have lived in the so called first world, which I do not think exists, makes you think you now know how to tell Africans to become first world
