In college, I had the Level 3 chemical straightener applied to my hair. It still took three hours to flat iron and then minutes later, my curls would revolt. Back to Jewfro I'd go. I've learned to love my crazy curls. Now my motto is: The Bigger the Better.
But no matter how I've worn my hair, I've always been the field rep for Jewfros. So I've compiled the top five questions I've been getting since the beginning of my time. Feel free to submit your inquiries via my contact page. In the mean time, please check this list of...
Frequently Asked Curly Q's
- Question 1: Is that your real hair?
I was at De La Soul concert and overheard two gentlemen discussing my hair and questioning whether or not a 'white girl' could have hair like mine. And, yes! Yes we can. So I turned around and said, "yes! My hair is real!" It's neither weave nor perm. This wasn't the first time I've been asked this and it's usually coupled with "is your hair that black or do you dye it?" I was asked that when I was 12 and the answer was I don't dye. Ask me again and you will.
- Question 2: Can I pull it?
Someone once said to me, "I just want to pull your hair. I wanna pull it!" And it wasn't an old boyfriend. In fact, it was a female stranger. Mostly I assume this is a rhetorical question. So I only answer with a dirty look.
