Hello! My name is Amma aka Amma Mama. Welcome to my lifestyle blog. It’s where I discuss my travels and my culture (Ghanaian-American). I recently visited Ghana and I vlogged my entire 12 day trip here! I also discuss hair (I’m a natural hair ethusiast!) and style (I am a HUGE accessories addict #TalesofAnAccessoriesAddict). I share life experience, recap events/ outings and so much more. For any questions or concerns, please contact me via email at Thank you for stopping by!

    Hello Amma!!
    Great blog!!! you look really good. I am a Ghanaian too and I live in France. I have been natural for a few years now but I have always worn tight braids. I stopped all that this July. I am trying to take care of my hair without braids now but I don’t even know my hair type!!! i think i am a 4c but am not sure…i like the hair typing systems, it allows me to use the right products for my hair. I need help….please 🙂
    Thanks in advance

    Salut !
    Je trouve très surprenant de voir que tu t’intéresses au passé de ta famille. J’aime tes photos en noir et blanc, celles-ci me rappellent l’époque de mes parents et le début de l’indépendance des pays africains.
    Je te félicite de nous conter l’histoire de famille. Bravo !
    From France

    Hello !
    It’s amazing to see how you are interesting in the history of your family from Ghana. I like your black and white pictures. It reminds me my family, back then when different African countries became independant (1960’s)
    Thank you…
