giuliana rancic…lower cased intentially

Giuliana Rancic made a comment about dreadlocks smelling like oil and weed. For those of you who don’t know her she is a voice in the fashion world. That’s it. Because of that platform, they gave her a microphone at the Oscars. My problem is this,  just because you have your ear to the street of fashion on the national stage does not mean you are an expert on race and culture. What’s worse is that you have never spent a day in the shoes of the black woman that you offended, Zendaya. In short, if you are culturally insensitive you run the risk of looking shallow with nothing substantive to say. Let’s elevate our thinking by thinking before we speak!

So We Hanging…

I have never had any hair touching my ears…but these are different days. I am getting an earful! Admittedly I have never been one to want long hair. And yet somewhere in my psyche I had to know that this is what comes with dreads. I am just wrapping my head around the whole idea. Natro’ is fulfilling his destiny! lol! As for the long hair thing I am dealing with…I am going to rock it with style when the time comes. As for right now I am just admiring the progress my dreads have made since mid-October!

Like a slow moving training

My hair is growing. It is! It is moving like a slow-moving train though. Some of my hair follicles are pulling ahead while leaving other ones seemingly at bay. I could use a shape up, in fact I would love one. But because I don’t want lose any length in any way I am staying the course. This is the ugly phase in the natural. I am kind of raw these days. uncut like a diamond, raw like organic bar of soap without the coloring or scents. I am ok with it, I suppose. I am transitioning. I am slowly changing and reprogramming my look in people’s mind and mine as well. No one ever said accepting the new you would be easy or even welcomed! It’s like really like a slow train moving where there is little movement to get excited about, in fact we tend to get impatient waiting, but we know there is movement nonetheless. That’s how I see my hair. It’s growing everyday, in small ways. I am comforted by older pics that show me where I was even a week ago. It reminds me that the train is still moving.
