I have natural hair and often love to change my styles regularly, it's a way for me to be expressive of the moods i am in as well as just have fun. I have a album on my FB page which shows various different hairstyles.
Often people ask me if it’s a wig or weave because it is long and I am "black" plus i constantly change the color or even the texture (straight to curly to wavy to ...) but it’s always MY hair. I will never be an "unbeweavable" girl! Straight from the root only!
There have been many occassions where people touch my hair, even without asking me, maybe thinking I will not feel it....the polite ones will ask first!
When I was 30 I cut my hair into a bob which was "short" seeing that before it was down to my chest. I decided that finally I was a full grown adult and it was MY hair, that I could decide for myself, despite of all the frenz and family asking me to keep it long. Or as they love to say in JA ..."tall hair"
In 2013,i had a really difficult year, I went through many different challenges! So i cut everything off down to 2 inches of hair. At the time my hairdresser did not want to comply so i just took the scissors and cut a big piece out of the front of my head and then said ..."FIX the rest". It was a new beginning , a fresh start, A REBIRTH!
