Good Hair

This Project 365 thing is tough. I can only think of so many "thoughtful" and "deep" things to shoot in macro mode at a time. I'm not feeling very abstract/artsy today. Meh. One thing I do know is that I won't be posting them on the blog anymore, I've chosen Flickr instead. So rather than posting an entire photo for each entry, I'll just post the link. :)

I did catch Good Hair on HBO today. Yes, I'm really late, but better late than never, right? It's an excellent documentary about the culture and stigmas of African American women and our crown and glory--hair. Ice-T had several quotables, but we won't go there. One that really stuck out to me was a man's statement that women average 40 different hair products. Another woman cosigned him stating that she just liked to try everything out to improve her hair.

All right then.

Putting a gazillion things on your hair won't make it grow/thicker, but hey...whatever works for you.

I love defying stereotypes, so I went into my bathroom closet and lo and behold, I, Courtney Sierra, do not own anywhere near 40 different hair products. It's more like 12 really. My mom on the other hand...
