Friday Five for June 20th, 2003

1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?
I think the official name for my hair type is kinky. Right now it is at what I would consider a medium length, although it is reaching “afro” levels.
2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?
Not much change really. It started out has a big ass afro in the late 70’s. I was able to get the afro down to more manageable levels and moved on to a flat top/fade cut for a long time. The only drastic haircut that I have had is when I have had my hair straightened
. Unfortunately, I had only one friend that liked it and had good comments about it; everybody else hated it. It was also really difficult to take care of, something that I had trouble doing. In recent times, I have completely shaved my head and gone for a bald look

3. How do your normally wear your hair?
If I have time, I’ll comb it all out and then kinda pat it into shape. Otherwise I throw a hat on and go out the door.
4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?
**sigh** Although everybody else hates it, I really love Michael Jackson’s hair in Remember The Time video. If I could have the hairdresser to help me take care of it everyday, then I think I would. Also been thinking of getting my hair braided or twisted. The problem with both of these hair styles is that you really can shampoo your hair once you get your hair done, something that I’m not sure I can do.
5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?
When I first came to S. F., could not find a barber that could cut my hair. We are talking at one point, after waiting an hour, one barber refused to cut my hair. But the worse was this one barber that just fucked up my hair. It was all uneven, she nicked me a number of times with the clippers. The first time since I was a little boy that I left the barber in tears.
