Hair Reflections

mixed-race girl with beautiful hairYou may have got your beautiful mixed-race hair just the way you want it but it wasn't always easy. Remember when...

Having your hair combed when you were little felt like punishment.

You've never had the luxury of running out the door without combing your hair.

You often felt like wearing a sign saying don't touch my hair.

You used to dread swimming at school because you could never get your hair to look how it did before you got in the pool.

You learned the hard way that coconut oil is the quickest way to a frozen fro on cold mornings.

You wished your mum didn't keep trying to put your hair in ringlets it never worked.

You hated being asked "is it a weave?"

You hated the rain.

You wished high street salons would admit they don't have a clue what to do with your hair.

If you got into a fight at school they always went for your hair first.

School pictures always seemed to be taken on a bad hair day.
