This confession is borne from the mind when it (and the body) is pressed for the time needed to maintain natural hair and sometimes the pressures of society that still - despite many role models and media figures that show us otherwise - tends to push the notion that straight hair is superior.
Hmmmm I wonder, how much time, energy and emotional angst would I save myself if I just permed my hair instead?
Have you felt like this before? Have you said this out loud before? How did you get through the urge to do so? Did you give in? Let me know in the comments!
