Hair Update #5


I know, I know. I am a bit obsessed with my hair. You would be too if you were always one 90% humidity day way from a full blown afro.

Anyway...if you had not already guessed it by now, Az does not have a whole lot of Black people running around. Thus, my hair is a bit of an...attention getter. Even more so now that summer is here and I am changing up my hair style as the days get hotter and my hair gets longer.

My new style of two-strand twists get regular comments and often an errant hand or two (Az culture does not have the, "thou shalt not touch a Black woman's hair" creed). Even with all the cultural faux pas and humorous hand slapping, I think I am looking pretty good, but hey, you be the judge.
