The African Headdress is more than just a fashion statement. Yes, African women look fierce when they adorn their heads with these beautiful colors and patterns. But the ‘duku’ or ‘gele’ is a statement worn to show prosperity and worn during different religious ceremonies.
As black women, we’ve begun to wear our headdress to honor our African culture. Showing the world we are proud to be descendants of our African ancestors.
Let’s continue to connect with our culture by showing honor as we wear our crown! Here’s 3 fun styles you can try. Share how you wear your crown by tagging us on IG @PursuitofNappi!
