I’m doing well so far. Dimeji is fine, and we are settling well into the new situation. Work is doing fine, and my small business is progressing well so far. I sell few items from time to time, but I am not doing much marketing, I must be honest. Having an extra source of income is a good thing, no matter how small.
So I decided to do what in my opinion, is the craziest thing to my hair. Following in Yemisi’s crazy style, I decided to be experimental.
And what is this crazy thing?
It might not be anything to some people, but it was a big deal for me.
I was self-conscious at first wearing it. It was a bantu knots style with side-woven frohawk. I kept resisting the edge to loosen the knots, and turn it to a knot-out, but I braved it, and wore it to church. Contrary to what I expected, I didn’t get any negative comment at all. It was either positive compliments, or people said nothing at all. This gave me more juice, so I was more courageous to wear it to work the next day.
Everyone was just looking at me. I got mixed reactions like
“Your hair is really nice!”
Aww, thank you.
“Why did you do a primary school girl’s hairstyle?”
“This hairstyle is not you, Anna. I think Yemisi’s influence is rubbing off on you.”
Good or bad?
“Hmm, you look really, really… what can I say? Different.”
Is that another way to say I look weird?
Yemisi was really impressed, and was oohing and aahing all over me. I’m sure if she hadn’t been in one of her crazy dyed hair cuts, she would have done hers immediately. I sense that she is going to do a remixed version of it very soon.
I wore it all week, and will be converting it to a knot out for next week. I am not sure if I will be wearing bantu knots soon. Maybe or maybe not. It looked good on me, but it was not the most flattering hairstyle option. I think the difference is what made it stand out.
Anyway, now I know I have what it takes to be crazy, even though it is not a big deal for some people. Now, let’s move on to the next big thing.
