I have no hair!
a saying that goes something like this: 'If you want
to see something different, you have to do
something different'. For years I've felt in the shadow of the girls I spend time with when we go out. I've longed for the long, shiny, swishy hair of my non-Black friends and the long, healthy hair of my Black friends (sometimes swishy when weave
is involved). I've never quite felt as polished and made-up and being the tall and gangly girl that I am, was never the 'cute one' that guys went for. So rather than try and be a
second rate version of the beautiful people, I decided to go against my better judgement - to try to fit in - and made a point of standing out.
Having shorter hair than my husband was a bit of a shock at first but I'm now used to the six-and-a-half minutes it takes to wash, condition
and dry my hair (or head depending on how you want to look at it) and I no longer have the dilemna of how to style my hair in the mornings.
I still get funny looks and I'm sure alot of people think I'm crazy but since my hair bill has practically
been cut down to 0
and I don't need a whole
cabinet of hair products, I
think it's a win win situation.
According to the London free paper Stylist
, most of us are caught in a rut with our hair and make-up and tend to stick to the same look. Why not try something different and embrace the results!
