Hair has been a hot topic for so long. The length, the color, the texture, the style, and most importantly in recent online opinionated debates, what "professional" hair should look like. I remember my very first hair memory, sitting in my mother's kitchen and the steam of the hot straighten comb hitting the back of my neck and just knowing I was going to die. There were so many times my mother burned my scalp but one time reminds me of the pain of hair. The hot comb had slipped from my mother's greasy fingers and hit my forehead, permanently burning a hole in my skin. Honestly, this left a permanent marking on my forehead that I hid with bangs for most of my adolescent years. A permanent remembrance of the pain of hair.
