The Joy of Hair
Oh the joy of loosing hair during winter!!! I swear I have given up! I'm slowly coming to the realization that God had things worked out when he gave me kinky hair huko in the womb. Females living in the near tundra regions (ohio could be one for all I care) can feel my pain. I remember not so long ago having to be dragged to the local hairdresser down the street. I'm sure you kumbuka the dusty kibanda with hair piece all over the floor. Artwork on the walls mainly consisted of hair designs artistically drawn on a board and a cracked mirror. All you had to say was "Nataka namba 1" (I want #1) and an exact replica would be masterfully produced on your head. Woe unto those who had serious visogos coz the style would take a dramatic twist unlike what was requested. It didn't help that as kids we had to sit on a low stool and when it came to the "banana" hairstyle, our faces were shoved into female nether regions for a good 20 minutes plus..... (retching...).
Braiding might be an option but the pain of sleeping shingo upande for subsequent days may be distressing to some. That is why I'm contemplating to nyoa yote!! I need to start from scratch, begin some neat dreads maybe. Manenoz of relaxerz kando! Considering you have to part with a cool $60 out here, natural may be the way to go for myself. So, if any ladies/gents perchance come across this post, hit me up and let me know how you feel.
