What is about our hair that we feel the need to straightened it? What is wrong with being natural or nappy? Why is it that when I am around a white woman at some point she flips her hair then smirks? What does that mean, is it a racial gesture? Does it have to do with society's standard on beauty? There are alot of things that I am starting to notice as I get older that I do not understand. For example, I asked myself why do we as black women wear scarfs? Then I answered to myself, maybe because during slavery times, black women wore scarfs to keep their heads cool while they were out in the cotton fields. What is the real reason, am I right?
