Here's the thing……since it is raining and humid I know that even if I straighten my hair today, I will step outside and I will not only feel it but also hear it curl as soon as I hit the sidewalk.
What to do? So, I decide I will wash it, dry it but NOT straighten it. I can do that once I get back.
For all of you out there who know me well, you know I NEVER leave the house with curly hair. You probably have never seen my curly hair or even know I have natural curls. Brett, however, loves my hair curly.
I look at myself in the mirror asking myself if I really am going to go through with it.
Once, twice, three times I go back to the mirror to consult it as I hesitantly move closer to the front door.
Speaking to myself now, I say,"Girl, just do it. Nobody knows you here."
Fine, out I go to the store - no issues. Great. Get to the till.
'I have to tell you, I love your hair" says the nice young man checking out my groceries.
"Thank you" I say with a smile while inside, I hear EGHHHHHHRRRR.
"Did my husband pay you to say that?" I ask him laughing.
"No, he didn't. I just thought it looked really good. But, don't tell him I did though…."
I know there is a group of you out there that prefer my hair in its natural state.
This one's for you.
