Combined with my dark skin it earned me nicknames like curryguts and chillipip. She had the fair skin and somehow missed out on the hair to match. The saving Black South African women 22 grace for Coloured girls before they intro duced: Sings jingle Wella…perfectly you x 2.
A pioneer in the world of hair straighteners! Did God have to give you this unmanageable bush? It would make your life and mine so much easier.

Then there were the jokes about girls with hair that refused to respond to chemical taming.
With each stroke the numerous unwanted kinks per inch were A coloured place 23 literally ironed out. I can still see her clutching her ears for dear life as my mother approached with the hot comb.

Her little set of anchors to prevent those plaits from sticking up in the air. Plaits would come undone, or resisting wind and rain, would point to the sky like aerials, mini-antennae from her head. The result? Charlene with a head of hair she could be proud of. With the aid of rollers, blow drying and swirling she was transformed.
She conformed. Of course there were endless compliments to reinforce her new self image. Who did it for you, Lovie? No matter how much it costs. What a joke! Going home means going back to your roots, your natural state. The hair can dry out, fall out, break, split, thin out and die.
Packing items into kist Almost twenty years later, Charlene is beginning the process of rehabilitation.

Not only of her hair, but of her being. No more efforts to please family, boyfriends, neighbours who may reject you for not being absorbed into the Coloured crowd. We often speak about it. You get swallowed by what everyone thinks and soon they determine what you do, what you wear, Black South African women 24 where you go and hell, even who you go out with!
Natal Coloureds are different in many respects from the bulk of Coloureds in the rest of the country. Their origins can be traced to three groups, Mauritians, St. Helenans and Euro-Africans. She is looking for Fransie. Her eyes eventually settle on an audience member; she pounces. Sitting kaalgat opie witman se stoep.
Wag jy vir iets? Hoor jy, Fransie? Kom jy saam? Kom moegoe, dis laat!

My dad built a kind of pedestal for me and through me, my mother saw a dream for herself realised. So I thought. Just watch. They need to come out down a peg or two, the lot of them. I see her from my kitchen window every Tuesday, dashing off to play tennis in that mini-skirt of hers. Please, at her age! Yet another Coloured teenager pregnant, straight out of school. The neighbours were delighted. She will be going to Varsity next year.
