Natural Hair Inspiration from Safira

"Safira" (Madala) of the television show Ghostwriter created by Liz Nealon and produced by the Children's Television Workshop and BBC One

If you pay attention, you will find natural hair inspiration in many places. This weekend, I became inspired by watching a character named "Safira" on episodes of the '90s television show Ghostwriter on YouTube . The show Ghostwriter was about a group of teen friends from New York who solved neighborhood crimes by using the help of their ghost friend named Ghostwriter.

Safira (played by Madala) was a 12-year old Mozambican girl who attended Hurston Middle School with the teen friends for 2 weeks, because her father was working a special assignment for the United Nations. She wore African clothing and accessories, and her shoulder-length hair was always styled in either a twist out or braid out style. Some of Safira's styles included a ponytail with a tribal print headband or the top half of her hair gathered back into a clip.  It's funny because I was 8-years old at the time the show originally aired in 1993, but I did not think much of her hair. But now, I get it! LOL. I plan to try some of Safira's styles soon.
