Eritrea is a country in Africa. Eritrea's capital is Asmara. The country is bordered by Sudan to the west, Ethiopia in the south and Djibouti in the southeast. It is a multi-ethnic country with more than five recognized ethnic groups. The population is vast with over 6 million inhabitants.
Several first generation children and young adults with parents from various countries in Africa reside in Northern Virginia, as well as all around the world.
Sofie is a first generation Eritrean that has been re-introduced some safe hair practices for her natural hair by Hair Therapy. An advantage she has experienced with her hair is the natural darkness of her hair color reflects light; it often appears shiny and healthy looking.
A challenge Sofie experiences is static when her hair is placed under direct heat. The biggest adjustment she has made to her hair regimen since visiting Hair Therapy is refraining from using products with petroleum.
