Africans are the perfection of beauty. From the color of their skin to the nature of the hair, everything is stunningly beautiful.

In today’s edition of #joannhaircrushday, we are celebrating African hair and our hair crush is no other than the gorgeous Benny Harlem

My first reaction when I saw the picture of this father-daughter duo was “wow”. I couldn’t help but stare at this picture for about 5 minutes. ‘Proud to be African’ …Thanks to all the amazing people that make us proud of our black skin. Simply captivating.

A lil about Benny Harlem

Benny Harlem is a Californian based Artist, Educator, Singer, Songwriter whose natural mane is this..long. The admiration between this father and his daughter Jaxyn is even more captivating. Both flaunting their natural manes which are almost identical. In Harlem’s words,

My inspiration to share my very personal relationship with my daughter on Instagram was my vision of life. I find the majority of my inspiration from children. I want to bring that feeling of family and fatherhood back to the forefront of the mind how we used to feel when we watched the cosby show or Julia. Social media had become the new nightly show so I want to put positivity on the mind of our fathers. We are the foundation behind the future”

How to get Benny Harlem’s hair

So I asked myself the same question you may be asking, “is this really his hair”. I did a bit of research and found that yes, indeed it is.

If it is, then how did he get it?

When asked about his healthy head of hair, he said in an interview with Beyond classically beautiful

My hair journey began at a very young age, simultaneous with the growth in my life. I am an Artist and I will continue to flow in creativity when it comes to my personal style. The sky is truly the limit!

Health is my lifestyle. I believe that being healthy mind, body and spirit allows my hair to reach beyond its peak. I maintain a very clean diet and I drink a ton of water both very important factors in the longevity of healthy hair.

A daily routine is necessary to maintain anything great. I use plenty of natural products witch over time have nourished my hair the best. Since I am in the habit of dressing and cleaning my hair, my daily routine is very simple of hydrating and styling.
