You might not be able to tell, but I am… yes I am, 32 years old at the moment. LOL… I get asked my age a lot, and it doesn’t help much since going back natural a few years back. Since I have, Ive gotten comments that people have thought I was babysitting my daughter, that we are sisters… Ive been at elementary after-school functions for my child where employees thought I was a student, been pulled over by the police just to card me… so on and so forth. It gets so old.
Usually when this happens, I have my hair in a puff with a stylish little head band to match whatever my outfit consists of at the time. Ive started to love these little accessories, because it gives my puffs that little UMPH I was looking for. Else, it just looks plain Jane to me. And I know I’m not the only one… plenty of naturals my age and older have worn flowers and colored bands to accessorize their curly tresses. And I think they look so so cute.
But, are we ladies too grown for this? I find myself sometimes while in the children’s place, supposed to be shopping for my daughter, but I’m over looking at the rack for anything cute that I can put in my own hair… Then I tell myself, I think I need to stop lol. It might be easier for me to do this after my hair grows a bit longer and I can start working with more and more styles. But at the moment, I feel limited, and in a awkward stage of growing my hair out. Or maybe I’m feeling like I’m too old for it only because most people are fooled when they do see me wearing em?
I wonder what our men think of their women wearing headbands and flowers in their hair? Mine really doesn’t seem to care, lol. I mean, at least he hasn’t said anything about it…. yet!
I think I’ll deal with the questions and assumptions for now and keep on with what I’ve been doing. But I am curious to know what you all think of it… drop me a line after the jump, post and let me know?
