She would never sit still for anything, so we had a lot of screaming going on. After the hair was done, she goes to a mirror and shake all the beads or barrettes in her hair. Then the smiles would come.

Glad I got over it!

The pain, the tears, the sobbing. Feeling my hair break and seeing handful after handful being tossed to the floor (not believing for a moment that that was natural). In fact, I wore braids for a good decade so I would not have to go through that daily ritual. I am so glad I decided to give my hair another chance and research what it takes to at least get a comb through it properly. Both my hair and I are grateful.

I hope more people though will be positive about the times when our mothers took time to make their daughters CUTE everyday for school. That’s some love even when it hurt getting our hair combed or hot combed!

I think that is a testament of our mother’s strength. I’m so thankful for all the times my Mom combed my hair, hot combed, washed my hair and introduced me to the hairdresser who gave me my first perm.

Though I’ve been natural, permed, natural and permed and now natural again, it’s a testament of all the things we can do with our hair texture. My Mom has always transitioned between natural hair and permed hair. I guess I’ve observed and I’ve been doing the same thing.

Thank you for sharing as always, afrobella.

Yep – it was always Saturday evening.

Yep – it hurt sometimes. But I got to watch TV while she did it.

Yep – she greased my scalp.

When my mom did my hair – it was all love but then my older sister started doing it. I guess she was mad that Mom made her do our hair – because she made sure to braid real tight and push the beads into my scalp while doing it!

Great article! As always Bella, thanks for sharing! (Cute picture)

T.T. that’s a cool picture!

My eldest sister would braid it for me and put lots of wooden and plastic beads on it, sealing the ends with foil. How I loved to shake my head around and hear the beads “swoosh”! LOL On special occasions, my mother would press my hair. This usually took place on Sundays. My mom was really gentle with my hair though, but I hated sitting in my slip on two telephone books for what seemed like hours trying to press through my thick, long, bushy Chaka Khan-like mane. When it was done, my mother would either pin-curl it or set it with foam rollers. I loved my curls and mama would put yarn ribbons or barrettes in them. I got my first relaxer at about 11 or 12 years old, then I started doing my own hair.

That childe was not happy. I had to put The Princess Diaries on to distract her she was crying so hard. And I was told that she has worked herself into so much of a frenzy somethimes she has thrown up.

I don’t have a lot of hair memories. I remember getting it pressed just for it to revert before church service the next morning. I remember the burns on my ears. My mom wasn’t the best braider so I wore lots of ponytails.
