"Fixing" My Hair
I have sad childhood memories about my hair! Every night my mother would "set" my hair - in metal rollers and tightly wound pin curls fastened in place to my scalp. It was uncomfortable. Sometimes it would hurt. Mother would "fix" my hair in the morning, shaping the curls and telling me again and again to sit still until it was just how she wanted it to be . During the day I would often be taken aside for her to 'fix' my hair again. Even when it was not curled, but made into braids they were elaborate "Fench" braids which pulled tightly from my temples. Ouch!
Are there others out there with similar memories?
