Dear Hair Mommy,
It seems as of late you have not loved and nurtured me as you once did when I was just a natural TWA. When I was younger you cared for me and bathed me often.
I felt so loved! I know as I got older and grew, I became more difficult to raise and care for, but you were still a great mother to me.
Then suddenly you decided I was too unruly and required too much work so you texlaxed me. I was not happy about that, but I made the best of it. I did notice you became a little gentler during bath time. You have never really been a tender or gentle mother, but you did the best you could to prevent me from breaking.
Now, I’m older, longer, thicker, and require more care but you seem to have started neglecting me. I need you now more than ever. I’m more fragile because my ends are so much older and more mature than my roots. Plus, you only bathe me once a week and I have even gone as long as three weeks without a bath. I just can’t take it!!! You can’t run three days a week and treat me like this. I’m upset! I need more quality time with you. I will give you credit because the last couple of weeks you have been co-washing me about twice a week, but I need soap. I need a deep clean. Can I please have some shampoo on my scalp? I mean really mommy…really?
I also need you to texlax me soon. I’m looking a little young and little. People don’t realize I am as old and long as I am because my new growth is causing me to shrink.
Mommy, I love you but you have to do better or I’m calling the people. I’m going to turn you in for hair neglect. Please get it together. You said you want me to grow to your hip, but I can’t if you keep neglecting me. Oh, can you feed me some of those Indian herbs like you used to because I really like those? I felt strong and healthy when you fed me herbs and gave me those multi-vitamins thingy’s. Oh, I almost forgot about the biotin and MSM. Can you at least get back on track with my supplements?
Okay, that’s enough for now. I hope this little note reminds you of how much I love you and how much I need your love and care.
Love your baby girl,
P.S. Can you do something with me other than those two pigtails? They are so not cute. I’m too pretty for you to style me like that. I understand putting me up to go running, but those things drive me crazy!
