She is the most famous Iraqi belly dancer and has the most glorious hair. Mine will probably never reach that length (and mine is wavy), but I love watching her dance with it!


This video is more recent (the sound is terrible) and you can see how beautiful her hair is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpPsMa-gl8Q

I wonder if I asked her very very nicely, she would give me her hair? :lol:

Gorgeous hair! Looks like it's a little bit past classic?

Wow, she's amazing! :D

Wow, so shiny and sleek. I wonder how it stays neat when she's moving around so much.

Wow, her hair is gorgeous! I wonder what her routine is.....I bet she's one of the lucky girls who is just like, "Oh I use whatever" haha.

I've never heard her, but while watching the two videos you posted I was completely entranced. So beautiful!

Isn't she amazing? That hair is oh-so-gorgeous. She was one of the dancers for Saddam Hussein's family during the regime. Eventually she fled Iraq, and I don't know where she is working now, but she was in Jordon, Sweden, and UK at different points.

The Iraqi gypsies (Kawleeya) are known for their lustrous locks. I'm not sure of their hair care routine but I do know they have naturally thick hair. Some Iraqis have curly, some straight. I love it!

This video is a different style than what Malayeen did, but it's still from the Gulf area. It's called khaleeji. Hair plays a large part in some Middle-Eastern cultures regarding dance and this gives you an idea of how beautiful it looks when showcased through movement. (can you tell I love dance!?)
