Allah, Asè and Afros: Black Muslim women on hair

Adama Juldeh Munu explores the distinctive experiences of hijab-wearing Black Muslim women and hair care.

“There’s just a lot of intermingling of what it is to be Black, what it is to be Muslim, and what it is to be a woman”

Imani Bashir

“It’s a matter of self-love to have the patience to do your hair when you come out of the shower even though you know it will be covered”

Nabiirah Kaseruuzi

“I started thinking, I’m a Muslim I can’t be doing frohawks under my hijab!”
