Modern Moms letter: To My Messy Girl

Asha French pens a letter to her delightfully disheveled daughter about the importance of packing light.

Dear Daughter, For days now, we’ve been putting our shoes where they belong as soon as we walk into our home. It’s a tiny step toward the life I want for us both: a life of clean, free space. Neatness will become our habit, then our lifestyle.  For now, it’s just an annoyance that makes you huff like a teenage me. It’s ok. We’re both learning that it’s not just about stuff.

Having to deal with thick, rebellious and extremely curly hair is very challenging. It is not like you have the patience to style your hair in a different manner every single morning. However, if you had the right haircut, then it would not be that hard to style it however you find fit.

You know how it flows …or rather how it doesn’t! Black women all over the world have all been victims of tress stress – years spent suffering with relaxer damage, scalp problems, hair loss, let alone the amount of cash we keep putting into our hair! Enough is enough!
