Now, how about downpours and thunderstorms? April showers may bring May flowers, but it turns my hair into a frizzy mess! We’ve visited this subject before, last summer, on my family vacation through New Orleans and to Disney World in Florida. The moisture in the air, the humidity, and the rain made it very difficult for me to maintain my newly flat ironed “do” the week before I had to dance in Downtown Disney. But, I am a black girl after all, so I have to talk about my hair every now and then.
Since we’ve had typical spring weather here for the last month, which includes lots and lots of rain, it’s been hard for me to keep my hair flat and tame and frizz free. And it’s not just this little black girl; it’s all us girls that struggle to keep the rain from ruining our hair. And don’t even get me started about the wind! So, take a look at a braided style that I’ve worn a few times lately. Now go and create your own style with braids to keep the rain out.
I complain about my hair. It’s not easy to do. It takes longer to style. It gets frizzy really easy. Getting it wet will ruin the style and I have to go through a lot to get it back smooth. I can’t just go from curly hair to straight hair back to curly again in a single day. I am still learning what works and what doesn’t. I don’t even do my own hair, so my mom is teaching me so many things about how to take care of my hair and keep it healthy. Sometimes it seems like a lot more trouble than it’s worth. But, even with all of that, it’s MY hair and I love it. Remember, learn to love yourself, even the things that are annoying! And when my hair looks good, it looks REALLY good. And I get a lot of compliments on it too. Check out some more hair styles below.
