Day One Hundred Sixty Nine, July 10, 2011

her morning hair 🙂

One day she woke up and her hair was curly! ~ true story

I come from a family of 5 children and I am the only one who was born with hair that curls. I have often questioned my straight haired parents, probed and wondered where this phenomenon came from only to settle to the fact that a large part of my genetic makeup is Lebanese and somewhere, somehow an African gene must have entered the mix. (And no, my mother did not cheat if that’s what you’re thinking)

My daughter has been complaining since the first day she could speak and play with her perfectly straight hair that life is so unfair and how come she cannot have curly hair! Then, one day, just like that, the hair fairy came and ‘poof’, she woke up with curly hair close to her 7th birthday!

Yes, curly hair fairies do exist, ask Lea!

My hair was poker – POKER – straight all of my young life. There was no way it would hold a curl past a few hours, even with the best beauty salon treatment (other than a perm). Then – Poof – in the eighties (my teens), when *everyone* wanted curly hair, the curly hair fairy came along and changed my hair permanently… True story.

I believe in curly hair faries too !
I’ve always had very thick longer than shoulder length hair and it’s just hung straight down with a slight swing at the bottom. I recently found a simple hair cut (as I cut my own) where you put the hair up on the top of your head like a pineapple and cut off the ends. When it falls down it’s all in long layers and guess what … it’s very wavey 😀
