Get Your Head Wrapped with Cee Cee’s Closet on November 11 in NYC!

Are you a fan of a good head wrap? Looking for tutorials or new head wraps to buy? Check out the NY hair and beauty event, Cocoa & Curls by Cee Cee’s Closet NYC!

My favorite African head wraps always come from Cee Cee’s Closet. Sourced from Nigeria from female tailors, the material is rich in color, pattern, and textile. Doesn’t this just sound luxurious?

Let me go a little further. They offer head wraps in various sizes and ones that are also lined with poly-silk to prevent breakage. *YES PLEASE* Cee Cee’s has been featured in top publications such as Essence, Buzzfeed, Allure, and Teen Vogue and they regularly show out at the annual Zuvaa Pop Up Tour.

    I’ve done a simple headwrap a few times (spiraling the tail in the front) when my hair was freaking out. But I wasn’t sure if I was appropriating, and I don’t want to be ~that~ white girl, so I stopped.

      Girl do you!!! Forget that mess. I work at a post office and wear my wrap and little old white ladies come in and have theirs all wrapped too. We laugh about the real reason we have it wrapped. But they rock them so you can too!

      I love look and, I’ve worried about appropriation too. From the commentary I’ve read, white folks should avoid African scarf patterns and wrap styles, otherwise we are ok. I’d love to hear additional dialogue on this.

      Yes, I’ve only used cheap Old Navy scarves. I am not trying to be Rachel Dolezal!

      There are so many style and ways. If anyone has a problem ask them what about the white South African girls who most of her friends are black, should she stop wrapping also.

    I can’t wear hats, they make me look like a child in adult gear. Lord only knows what I’d look like in a wrap…

    My Mom wore headwraps for years in the 70s and looked amazing. I will have to find out from her how to do it.

    Love to wrap most days. There was a convention last weekend with all different cultures in Michigan last weekend.
