I’ve always had brown hair but growing up in Jamaica people with light skin & brown hair were called dundus or albino. Later as a teen I wanted my curly semi negro hair to be straight, so I processed it to be like the white people. At age 33, after a series of unfortunate events, I decided to go back to my roots of my brown semi negro curly hair. I get compliments everyday! “I wish I had your curls” or “Your Hair is so pretty”. It’s from this that I learnt to love my hair and love the natural colour & love me.
