Forgive my absence. Ezra was sick with something strange, but mild and then we had wonderful house guests this past week. We've had so much fun I forgot to capture it all in pictures. :(
Now that we are back to our regularly scheduled programing, Joel and I watched Chris Rocks documentary Good Hair. As a black woman a lot of this movie rang true. Some of it was a surprise as well. Like how and where human hair comes from. I had no idea that weaves could be such a huge expense. I started getting a perm when I was about 10. And continued to get them until I was 23. I went through a time where I loved wearing my hair in braids. ( my hair braided with fake hair)
There I am. circa 2002 with braid extensions
And here I am Pregnant with my first in 2005. With a regular perm.
I went natural at 23.
I have never been so happy. I love my own hair and for the first time wouldn't change a thing.
