Lynda Carter, my hair inspiration

My hair was growing but it wasn’t evident to me because it was the same length it had always been. I had no clue why my hair wasn’t long so I attributed it to “the curse” that most Black and most African women believe about coily and tightly curled hair.

We are condemened to have short, unruly and unmanageable hair.

When I finally convinced myself that long hair was possible for me, I thought about the women I looked up to when I was little and this woman immediately popped into my head. Every time I saw her on the screen, I had to stop what I was doing just to stare at her.

To me, she was a GODDESS. She was everything a woman should be: strong, beautiful, compassionate, determined. She was Wonder Woman and her hair was amazing.

No other woman on television, even though I was watching re-runs, looked like this woman. She was flawless.

And she even hung out with the puppets!

 So yes, Wonder Woman, the beautiful Lynda Carter was my Hair Inspiration. If my hair was going to be longer then I wanted it to look like her hair.
