I AM NOT MY HAIR!!!!

I AM NOT MY HAIR:hair

If it is straight, curly, long or short.
If it is perm, naturally, braided or dreads.
If it is glued in, sewed in, colored or a wig.
No matter if we are African American ,Caucasian, Spanish or Asian.
We all have the same problems. We all share a Sisterly bond.

“WHAT TO DO WITH THIS HAIR ON MY HEAD?”

We are always trying new hairdo’s and hair products. Trying to get that perfect hair we see on our favorite celebrities.

But have we, as women, taken this hair thing too far?

I was watching the Tyra Bank’s show a few weeks ago and they had a Episode on there where they had kids talking about their hair.  I was sad, by the end of the show, to know that some kids didn’t like how they looked because of their hair.

Some of these kids had short hair and some of them had very long hair. Some of their mothers were taking them to the salon to get weave sewn-in and perms.

I was like – what age is too young to get a perm and a sew-in weave?

Are we that obsessed with our own hair that we have to put our hair beliefs on our children. If so, we need to take a look in the Mirror and fix what is inside of us that is broken.

In the famous song of India Arie:
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations no no
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am a soul that lives within

Maybe we need to live by these words.  Our HAIR shouldn’t make us are break us. We can be beautiful with it, but we are also beautiful without. Love yourself just the way you ARE.

    I agree, hair is an accessory. End of story. children should not be worried about how they look, they should only be enjoying being a child, not sewins and touch – ups. What ever happened to pony tails and cornrows?

    Hair literally comes and goes. It has no importance. To think the terms “good” and “bad” hair are still being used and young girls are still feeding into it. I hate the way one little cousins envys another because one has “better” or longer hair. why isn’t the focus on health and condition instead of texture and length!
