Tonight I am writing my first post of Throwback Thursday! I am so excited to share different things that come to mind in the Thursdays to come.
Other than my name, my hair has always been the topic of conversation, how poofy it was, how nappy, how white, how slightly curly/wavy it is. My hair was the brunt of every bad joke. The reason behind every nickname (Cinderella, Snow white etc.,) Even now people don’t believe how insane my hair used to be. I tell them I was born with an afro, they giggle and look at me like , “Yea Right!”
Hours were spent crying after showers because it was so tangled. Every kind of frizz control was purchased and dumped on my hair and none of them helped. If you made the mistake of brushing my hair with a circle brush, you’d wind up spending days trying to get it out or you’d have to cut it. Let’s not even mention what happened when got gum in it!
There also was a year that I was Cinderella (who was I fooling) for Halloween, and my mother got the great idea to spray hot pink washable spray in my hair. Well guess what? It didn’t wash out, it grew out! I was SO embarrassed in elementary school, back then children, especially at my age, didn’t have hot pink hair!
I went through strange stages with my hair, I had an obsession with head bands, for most of middle school and all of high school I would only wear it in a bun, unless on a whim I scrunched it. I remember the day of my High School graduation, I had my hair straightened and wore it down, that day I had so many oohs and aahhs.
Over the years I have grown to learn my hair has to be long, how to properly straighten it, to expect the tangles, but ultimately I am thankful that it isn’t as crazy as it used to be! I truly hope that my future children wont have the crazy mane of hair that I had growing up!
Now, it’s time for the most embarrassing years of my life, including but not limited to the clothes that my mother used to make for me. Go, go laugh, because this is the first and last time you will see these horrid things.
Yes, the gotta love those bangs!
Pretty sure I pitched a fit to wear the dress I had on once I saw my sister in it.
Hope yall enjoyed the laughs! Until next Thursday.
