Flashback Friday: My Hair Before My Natural Hair Journey!

I know it may be hard to believe, but I didn’t always have a head full of unprocessed naps. Anywho, this is a flashback post showing what went down before my natural hair journey. This post has been modified lightly for grammatical errors and such.  Also, my face is blurred in some of the photos because fools people used to steal my photos. Smh

    This was a nice trip down memory lane. In that 2002 pic, girl, you look like my late nephew’s ex-wife. The hair was sho-nuff laid chile. But Sug, you know I gotta say this, but you was a juicy baby!!! See, I woulda been combing your hair and dressing you up and chewing your cheeks. I would have ruined you. Before I was a mom, I was the perfect aunty…shoot, I’ve been aunty since birth—literally. I knew how to feed them, dress them, comb their hair…that’s why I got so good with cornrows after practicing on the 5 or 6 Barbie heads I’ve had. My nieces always had their hair together. Man, I shoulda finished cosmetology school, but that’s another story for another time. Yet ironically, I don’t want a girl of my own…#Don’tJudgeMe Luv the boys…yup.

    Very nice! Query me this, Why is it that in old pics mama might have the biggest most fabulous afro, but their daughters hair is straightened? I always notice that when looking through my family’s old pictures.

      You know what, I didn’t think about that. My sis has a fro on our family pic, but my hair was pressed—hard pressed chile! That is serious irony, ain’t it?
