Marvel's Marvellous Monica Rambeau!

Marvel's Marvellous Monica Rambeau!

Just when we thought Marvel's MCU couldn't represent anymore from creating a culturally rich movie depicting it's first black hero, Black Panther, they introduce us to Marvel's soon-to-be fave, Monica Rambeau! And we are so here for the representation!

The character Monica Rambeau is played by up and coming actress Tenoyah Parris. Rambeau features in the MCU's WandaVision - Marvel's latest series that gives a deeper look into Wanda Maximoff's (The Scarlet Witch) and Vision's (Wanda's romance interest) relationship.

The series pays homage to different era's of popular television including Bewitched, Malcolm In The Middle and The Dick Van Dyke TV Show (to name a few) where the characters are transformed to these generations throughout. As we are taken back to these eras, we join the journey of black women embracing their natural kinks and coils.

Fitting In

Fitting in: during the 50's it was definitely not an era where black culture was celebrated. Unfortunately, that's just how the cookie crumbled back then. But throughout, we watch the transition of Monica's television character Geraldine blossom through the eras of television.

Bringing the fro: In another segment in the 70s - 80s Rambeau is seen with her gorgeous fro on display. We know that the fro is a symbol of hope, pride and justice and for that - we loved how this was incorporated in Geraldine's (Ramebeau's) role (not a spoiler). MCU didn't shy away from all the cultural connotations throughout the years - way to go!

Throughout the series, in present time, we see Monica Rambeau flaunt her gorgeous kinks and coils with all the curl confidence! We wonder what she used to get these gorgeous twist-out results! Maybe it was a little Flora & Curl magic - you know, our new Twist & Braid Cream? ...We can wish! 

We love seeing the representation of our kinks and coils on the big screen. It is so empowering to the curl community as a whole as we have always been taught that our coils and kinks aren't desirable. But, curl friends, they are desirable. This kind of representation sets up teens and even adults to consider embracing their natural curl pattern and, you know we love to see that.

So, love your curls, let them blossom and be Monica Rambeau - the soon-to-be hero loving every inch of her kinks, coils and curls. Curl friends... ASSEMBLE!

Naturally Yours,

The Team at Flora & Curl

Nice Comb

It's a nice wide tooth comb. I have a couple other ones & I like this one the best. I only comb my hair when I wake up, before I refresh or wash it.

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
great and easy to use

I love that this clay is mixed with other things so you don’t have to apply any vinegar afterwards. It’s perfect for travelling, not only because ot is not a liquid, but also because ot is so easy to use and it hydrates and clarify your hair! <3 And the scent of this product is just AMAZING <3 My boyfriend loves to use it, too. He said his hair was never so beautiful before using this “magic”! :)

Curl gamechanger!

Just about to finish my first bottle of this and about to order another. I have fine curls and this foam is very lightweight, non sticky and has great hold too! You don’t need too much product to get bouncy full definition. It’s a staple in my curl routine!

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
Perfect curls

I stopped wearing my hair curly because I couldn’t find a product that would adequately hold my curls all day without making the curls look “wet” and over styled. A friend recommended this product and it has transformed my curls to look healthy and frizz-free!

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
Very surprised

I've been struggling with finding products, but I'm really enjoying these and so is my wavy hair! Not 100% sure on the creamy shampoo but the other products are working a treat!
