If My Hair May Discuss
My hair, if it might discuss my goodness what on the earth wouldn’t it say Really, I’m a bit afraid to find out. Why Well, because my hair does not have a perm, relaxer or a texturizer. So You’re probably saying. So Really Let’s discuss this for a minute. Please give me a second while I get on my cleaning soap field for leverage. – Okay I am prepared now. My hair, my hair is probably speaking about me at this very moment. It is in all probability calling me some names that I’ve by no means even heard. And a few that I’ve heard and will never repeat in my lifetime. Any who let me explain why I say this about my hair or why hair shouldn’t be my greatest pal for the second or maybe not ever. Sorry no extra BFF’s here so stop trying!
First, let me start by guessing a number of the things my hair is perhaps saying about me or might say about me. The very first thing I’m positive is ‘when are you going to perm me’! Or possibly even ‘can we get a straightening come up in right here, PLEASE’! If not that then ‘a blow out comb hairdryer, weave, something something. Simply cease making me put on my hair ‘Au pure’.
What’s fallacious with Au pure or relatively its pure texture If my hair has a pure curl and I do not mean the pure curl of somebody with need I say “good hair.” Me and that i my hair have never really been BFF”s. How many people actually love their hair My hair more often than not has it’s own agenda regardless of what I say or what I do. So with that I’ve determined, me not my hair, that I want it to do what I need it to do. What is so flawed with me eager to sport what God has blessed with me NATURALLY Obviously, there must be one thing wrong, if there wasn’t there would not be a necessity for therefore many advertisements for perms, weaves and braids. Don’t get me improper I’m not knocking those who choose to perm or weave their hair. This is just my private opinion.
Let me digress for a moment right here please. At the moment the place many African American women are both getting dreadlocks (dredlocks) two strand twists, flat twists, kinky Afro’s and another natural kinds be it for monetary reasons or simply wanting a change. For whatever motive ladies are doing it my query is that this; The magazines which are designed to target African People or minorities, The place are the commercials which are directed towards being keeping your tress’ naturally You’ll think magazines corresponding to Ebony, Essence or even Jet would have a one page maybe two pages of wig light commercials that target this rising market. Why not a column directed towards this topic Possibly that is to a lot to ask. Possibly they determine you should use the identical products for relaxed or perm hair that you can for pure hair. If that’s true then why make and advertise merchandise directed towards hair weaves and wigs Maybe the reply has to do with money. There may be, I am sure, in all probability more money to be made from such ads which are directed in direction of lengthy luxurious hair from weaving or perming than being naturally kinky.
I am amazed at myself. By no means would I’ve thought I would be sitting right here running a blog about pure hair. Sure me, perm having, weave carrying, braid having junkie. Effectively, now a former junkie. Then again I’m unsure if I used to be true addict. An addict is someone who is in constant need of something and that i wasn’t in constant need nor feigning for a perm or weave. But there was a sense of being on locked down with my hair. It controlled me. It told me after i wanted a perm. It instructed me once i needed a weave. It instructed me after i needed to place extensions, reasonably braids in. Oh please, you’re saying to yourself. How in the world can your hair tell you what you wanted to do and once you needed to do it Nicely for you disbelievers on the market its true and i did it ! Let me splain (that’s brief for clarify). When my hair would grow once i had a perm it would say ‘you’ll be able to see your roots it doesn’t match the rest of us in straightness’. Or something else like ‘it would be nice if you could possibly comb us it as properly (or as straightforward) as you probably did once we first obtained the permed’ . My hair would ship me constant reminders that it’s been 4 to 6 weeks, time to get us achieved. They had been all in cahoots! The strands that’s. Plotting towards me. You’d suppose the some one would stand up and say one thing like ‘hey they are apart of us why do we’ve got to transform them to be straight like us’ Yeah, okay that solely lasted however a minute. And so begins the journey or should I say extra like an episode of Survivor-Hair salon first season.
First step, you have to call your woman or guy, to see if she /he has anything out there hopefully inside the next week. If not you need to wait. That wait can generally be up to 3 weeks (for some I’ve heard longer!) before you may get tan appointment. Man that is loopy, but that is actuality. Subsequent, you’ve bought your appointment and your all set able to go! Finally, you arrive and with pleasure you might even arrive early! Does it matter that your early Nicely, that depends upon how good or unhealthy your stylist is. If their any good they will have no less than three other folks ahead of you. And if their dangerous, then there will still be no less than three people in entrance of you! Three hours later you may still be beneath the dryer or with some good fortune behind you, you is perhaps completed. Sooooo, now after all that you simply step out of the salon together with your hair looking fierce (I hope). Now here comes the true problem, keeping it that way!
My dilemma was always how am I going to keep my hair in this type Let me simply say that I’m a wild sleeper. I can tie my head up or down, at evening with scarfs, stockings, do-rags and satin bonnets. You name I have most likely have it or have used it. Come morning I get up wiping sleep from my eye with my hair trying like I never went to the salon. Crazy! .It looks this way as a result of I am not the type of particular person to tuck myself into the mattress so I don’t move an inch whereas sleeping just so my hair would still be fierce in the morning. Never that!
This was solely imagined wig light to be my cliff be aware version of my new found love for natural hair. (Pump the fist for being chemical free!) So with that being stated I will end this fashion.
