Self Portrait: Jamaican Knotty

Contest Entry #070- Self Portrait: Jamaican Knotty
"Lexine! Come comb yuh hair fi gaa school!"
Oh how much I hated hearing that line from mom.
But I must admit, the end product was always amazing. In which other country do you see a child going to school with a million pony clips in their hair and another fifty small clips to hold the stubborn hair in place? Only Jamaica!
Locks, rope twists, afro puff, chiney bump, dutty wine, just to name a few, are some of the very interesting hairstyles that may be seen here in Jamaica and they have some very interesting names.
It is indeed amazing the wide variety of styles one can put their kinky Jamaican hair in.
Though it is very challenging because of its texture, Jamaicans hair is loved by many. It’s defined curl pattern and its thickness makes many Caucasians very jealous :-)
Although many, like myself, may relax their hair to make it easier to manage, if it is even 10 years after they eventually make the decision to go back natural.
Back to the tough Jamaican head me bawn wid! It reach 8 months now and going strong!
