I've been back from Jamaica for not quite a month. Sought out getting locks & there's only one person (blonde) in Santa Barbara who does them & won't give me a direct response about an appointment. Got my hair cut the other day & immediately put in back in the turban I wear to keep my hair clean & because it feels respectful to my ancestry.
It's not easy being a woman. Jamaica probably isn't even 1% white. I was definitely in the minority, but that wasn't the first time. It also happened on the plane ride to Santa Barbara. There are so many trends out there. I've been vociferous about women who have "wooly" hair & don't wear it naturally & stopped being vociferous about it, however in my case, there's nothing but longing for hair I can twist. The women I met in Jamaica thinks my grass is green. Everything is a lesson. Perhaps there's one in your experience for you?
