Since discovering who I really am, my true identity, I came to understand that braids, weaves and wigs are not to be worn by a true black woman who knows her identity. Boaz always hated me wearing braids, he always told me to stick to my natural hair as he found me more beautiful without any artificial hair. Now I understand why.
Egyptian History Of Braids And Snake Worship
I won’t beat around the bush, I will just say it as it is. Braids are originally from the ancient Egyptian Dynasty. They were created to cover the Black woman’s shame after the fall by the serpent. She lost her hair and it stopped growing. Before the fall the black woman’s hair was her glory, it was a long long soft curly afro, big and bouncy. After the fall it shrunk and became like a scab. The black woman’s glory was taken from her also because of her pride. So the Egyptian goddess had to improvise. When you are wearing braids or cornrows, you are simply wearing serpents on your head, as that is what braids and cornrows represent.
Ancient Egyptians loved snakes, it was their religion. For them, the snake was the symbol of LIFE. They believe it was the first creation. Pharaoh wore a crown of snakes. Black Egyptian princesses wore snake crowns, braids and wigs. They worshipped snakes, remember the story of Moses and Pharoah, it was all about snakes. According to the bible, Egyptians are also enemies of the Hebrew God. The Hebrew God had to deliver his people from the snake-worshipping pagan Egyptians.
Apostle Paul did warn the black woman about braids and cornrows, he said, “Likewise, I want the women to adorn themselves with respectable apparel, with modesty, and with self-control, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes.” 1 Timothy 2:9
Zimbabwean Women And Egyptian Braids
Zimbabwean women love braids and cornrows. That’s why I was obsessed with braids and cornrows when I was Jean, before I became Lady Mary-Tamar. Boaz didn’t like me in the braids. He said he wanted to touch, smell my hair, massage my scalp and all, the braids got in the way. He said when he was hugging me, the braids were all over the place. Well, I am happy that I have put this Zimbabwean culture of braids behind me.
But how is Zimbabwe connected with the Egyptian culture of braids? One may ask.
Great Zimbabwe, Snake Patterns And Braid Patterns
The answer is, Zimbabwe itself was built by the inspiration of the snake, serpent, dragon, lizard, crocodile. That is why Great Zimbabwe literally snake shapes and patterns. The mysterious Great Zimbabwe has snake patterns and braids patterns on its walls, should I say more? It remains one of the greatest mysteries of this world, like the Pyramids.
Who built the Great Zimbabwe? Who inspired it? What sacred spirit is in Great Zimbabwe?
Can you not see the snake patterns on the walls?
Can I tell you something, the people of the Shona Kingdom came from Egypt before they settled in the small Kingdom of Geshur.
Black Women Wearing Wigs And Weaves
Again, this is from ancient Egyptians. The women and even men wore wigs and weaves. It became fashionable to wear a wig. But it was mainly to cover the black woman’s glory which was gone. It’s sad really.
Asians And Selling Of Braids, Wigs, And Weaves To Black Women
Because of the curse, the only people who benefit financially from the selling of hair extensions and weaves for black people are Asians. They are the ones who were chosen to make money from the fall of the black woman. That’s why black people who try to go into the industry of selling hair products to black people are normally outdone by Asians.
Also black women who do hair, like braids, weaves and cornrows are not able to become millionaires from this profession. Doing black hair is a cursed profession.
Personally, I have never liked weaves and wigs, they just look strange on a black woman. I was forced to wear a wig at the first Black British Entertainment Awards and sadly I looked like a clown. By the end of the event, I had taken off the wig and binned it.
That’s why I will never wear braids, wigs, cornrows or weaves again. My hair is enough. My glory is enough, it shall never be covered or distorted. I am not a pagan Egyptian Goddess, I am Lady Mary-Tamar.
