Good hair, bad hair and whatever's in between
It seems people are noticing my efforts. I am happy about that, but I had a discussion today about hair and it wasn't pretty. It was after church. Me and my husband are mostly always with the last people to leave. I guess we love to hand out with our church friends. Any-who... Some girls were talking about how good my hair looks and asking me what I'm doing.
I was trying to explain about moisturizing and sealing and washing more often and Dcing and mineral oil and petroleum, etc. So we're talking and one girl just said that it works for me because I have... wait for it... GOOD HAIR *gasp*. ME!!!!!! Good hair!!!! Never!!!!! Even when I was a young girl, I never had long hair. My hair always looked dry and broke off periodically.
I wasn't really broadcasting my hair journey, although I haven't hidden it either but discussing hair with the skeptics is not easy. They are reasonable ladies. They're like me before this journey.
Some people think that the hair they were born with is the hair that they have right now, but a lot of them are wrong. Unhealthy hair is not the hair you were born with. Ear length is not your terminal length.
I am so happy to be on this journey. I think I convinced one of the girls. I will work on her to see if I can get her to join the site.
