Egyptian youth are making a silent revolution, to get natural thick-curly hair freedom from the flat and direct influence of the West, Soraia Hashem, manager of the G Curls Salon, is among the frontrunners of this ‘silent revolution’.
There was a major revolution in Egypt 10 years ago. To get freedom from dictator Hosni Mubarak. Millions of young protesters gathered at Tahrir Chowk in the capital city of Cairo. And finally he liberated himself from the dictator. Now this youth is on the path of a revolution again. This is a silent revolution, to get freedom from the flat and direct influence of the natural, thick curly hair of the West. Soraya Hashem, the manager of Zee Curls Salon, is among the frontrunners of this ‘silent revolution’.
He and many of his colleagues are slowly airing this ‘revolution’ through social media. It is interesting to remember that the revolution against dictator Hosni Mubarak was also started through such social media. However, Hashem explains, “Earlier we had family, social pressure. Our natural curly hair was considered wrong because of the influence and racial prejudices of the West.
It was said directly – go to the salon, get them straightened out. Try to look beautiful. ‘ Hashem’s colleague Dina Othman says, “The worst part of that effect was that teachers in schools also used to ask children to get rid of such hair.” If you had asked for a job, you would have been told on the basis that you are not qualified. I was not given many jobs because of curly hair. Irresponsible was told. ‘However the situation started to change when the youth set up the police station.
Star football player Mohammad Salah became a youth icon in the early stages due to his special hairstyle. And today the effect of this change has been so much that ‘curly hair is no longer a problem’ for the youth, especially women. Even at the recent Al-Gowna Film Festival, celebrities on the red carpet are seen flaunting their curly hair as well as elegance.
I feel freedom when I look at my curly hair
Doa Gavish, founder of the online forum and hair care company Hair Addict, says, “I didn’t care what people would think.” When I started this company I became half a million followers in Egypt and the Gulf. People became my admirers. Today, when I look at my curly hair, I feel freedom. I love seeing that people in the country no longer hesitate to have tattoos and dramatic haircuts. And their most focused attention is on curly hair. ‘
