Hair is a big thing in my community. I am part of a nation called Rainbow nation. Just imagine a colourful bunch of people, with colourful hair and a colourful culture. So why is hair so important in our culture? Why is hair our pride and crowning glory?
Let me start: ”My hair is an outward expression of the love I have within me. When I experience difficult times, I question my hair…I try to change my hair”
I then went and asked a couple of friends and relatives about their relationship with their hair:
”My hair’s connected to my moods. My moods are very much dependent on the state of my hair.”
”The straighter my hair, the better I feel from within. I get it right with a Swirlkous!”
”I feel important, powerful and it gives me that extra confidence at work or in any environment.”
”My hair is the most significant in my life, even more so than my boyfriend!”
After much thought on the subject, what revealed to me was that our reality is not shaped by the state of our hair but shaped by the experiences we gain from expressing ourselves through the state of our hair. Take responsibility for your own experiences by expressing a beautiful you, expressing a happier you, of living authentically in all your endeavours, without the need of approval from others.
It seems obvious our hair’s indeed, our crowning glory!
