First of all, beauty iz Black, no matter the hue, hair texture etc… Now back to the matter @ hand.
I met this 14 year old model the other day & was floored when she told me how old she was. When I entered the area where the models were getting hair & make up, he mother was blowing out her fro & she was almost in tears. I laughed inside because it reminded me of Sade when she gets her hair combed.
Being natural is not as easy & pain free as it seems.
I could not wait to show Sade the pictures of the aspiring model, so that she can know that she is not the only Black girl without chemically processed hair. Lately, Sade has been wanting to get her hair straightened or at least pressed. I had to break it to her that the only way that was going to happen, was a, over my dead body & b when she moves out of my house.
Believe it or not, I feel her but, it is important for me to let her know that her natural African gifts are the best.
