My son has officially pronounced my afro fake.
For those who are looking at me sideways,
I guess I should explain.
You see the boy has curly (picture spirals ) hair. It’s quite gorgeous when allowed to grow out.
I have curly hair as well.
But it takes a little more manipulation to get the curl definition that I prefer.
So primarily I do two strand twists or flat twists to accomplish this.
I find that this method gives me the volume that I like without having to resort to blow drying my hair.
Win win right?
Well not exactly.
Though the boy loves the fact that I wear it curly like his, instead of straight.
He continues to assert that my ‘fro is a knockoff.
I’m not sure how I feel about being relegated to the not 100% authentic bin.
Especially by an 8-year-old, that I helped create.
But such is my life.
