One of my biggest challenges living in Asia has definitely been the hair challenge. Finding a good hairdresser for Black women is nearly impossible. A few weeks ago, I trusted a local hair dresser to do my hair and the result was a complete disaster, a hair damage so bad which led me to cutting it. This is the shortest I have ever worn my hair in my entire life and I wish I could say it was my decision but it wasn’t a decision that I made. It is a result of a hairdresser not knowing what works on my hair. My hair was completely falling off and was at this length. Cutting my entire hair off this short was the only solution left. It felt a bit painful to cut my hair because I felt like I was being forced into doing something I didn’t voluntarily decide to do.
What can I say? I can only thank God that I’m not in my twenties anymore; an age when we tend to think that our hair and beauty are the most important things that define us and therefore the only things we have to offer to the World. I have grown into a woman who believes that my intrinsic value is not defined by my hair and that I have much more than my look to offer to the society.
So in another word, be ready my lovelies to see me rocking both my short hair and my long wigs. Wearing a short hair definitely gives me that subtle feeling of complete freedom, however on those days when I want to feel even more glamorous, I will style my wigs. I think it should be fun!
