"Mama", she said, "for the dance performance we have to wear our hair loose. The teacher says it has to move."
Well, she cannot possibly wear her natural African
hair loose and it doesn't move, no matter what you try.
So we asked Stéphanie, her hairdresser
from Cameroon. Stéphanie helped us through
the early years of desperation, when doing her
hair meant hours of crying and screaming.
She didn't let us down!
It's loose and it moves.
One happy girl.
