    You girls took me back down memory lane :) I too have a white mum who NEVER knew anything about my texture hair. (its like yours) She would use either Vaseline or Olive Oil and nothing else as there was not anything else out there at the time. She would pigtail my hair and I hated it. One time I caught nits at school and instead of treating it she CUT it all off. I cried for AGES. I was forced to go to school and as a result I was picked on. Things were so different to now. Do any of you remember when we were classed as Half-Caste? I dont know where Mixed Race came from but I still class myself as H/C. I stlll see white mums doing the pigtail style as they too dont know what to do with their daughters hair and it takes me back. I am now a natural and am enjoying my hair. I went to see my mum the other day to have a girlie day and she wanted to put ROLLERS in my hair like she said she did when I was little :~/ I had to remind her that things have changed but you know mums!!! Any way thanks for sharing this as I totally enjoyed it. Oh yeah I too was the only black kid in my school and in the area. It is weird that what I went through you ladies went through the same thing too! Small world:~)
