Her CrOwN and GlOrY


The Bible speaks about a woman's hair being her crown and Glory.It may be my crown and glory, but I don't take my hair thaaat serious.Meaning, if it's short...no problem.If it's long and I need to cut it, no problem!I have heard this explained, and expounded upon many ways.For me, my hair is very much a part of who I am-style wise.If I am bored..I do my hair.If I wired, or need to relax..I do my hair.Hair has always been a means for me to express myself.it also has been fun to try just about everything there is out there to try.I love color, natural, curls, straight, braids, short hair, long hair and even updo's. People that know me never know what they are gonna get when they see me.I can be Oprah on Thursday, and Ellen D on Saturday.I planned on doing my hair today.My hair is long over due to be done.I have been wearing the same style for weeks,...major violation for me...lol
Also, working out daily causes major stress on my hair.I style it then sweat it out.So I had planned on doing a style can compliment me, and my exercise regime.No matter how much I sweat, this stuff won't budge.So this time I am going for the natural look.Iwill post pics when I am done.



I Am Not My Hair lyrics
(feat. Akon)

[Talking:]
Is that India.Arie? What happened to her hair? Ha ha ha ha ha
Dat dad a dat da [4x] Dad a ooh

[Verse 1]
Little girl with the press and curl
Age eight I got a Jheri curl
Thirteen I got a relaxer
I was a source of so much laughter
At fifteen when it all broke off
Eighteen and went all natural
February two thousand and two
I went and did
What I had to do
Because it was time to change my life
To become the women that I am inside
Ninety-seven dreadlock all gone
I looked in the mirror
For the first time and saw that HEY....

[Chorus]
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations no no
I am not my hair
I ma not this skin
I am a soul that lives within

[Talking:]
What'd she do to her hair? I don't know it look crazy
I like it. I might do that.
Umm I wouldn't go that far. I know .. ha ha ha ha

[Verse 2]
Good hair means curls and waves
Bad hair means you look like a slave
At the turn of the century
Its time for us to redefine who we be
You can shave it off
Like a South African beauty
Or get in on lock
Like Bob Marley
You can rock it straight
Like Oprah Winfrey
If its not what's on your head
Its what's underneath and say HEY....

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
(Whoa, whoa, whoa)
Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person?
(Whoa, whoa, whoa)
Does the way I wear my hair make me a better friend? Oooh
(Whoa, whoa, whoa)
Does the way I wear my hair determine my integrity?
(Whoa, whoa, whoa)
I am expressing my creativity..
(Whoa, whoa, whoa)

[Verse 3]
Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy
Took away her crown and glory
She promised God if she was to survive
She would enjoy everyday of her life ooh
On national television
Her diamond eyes are sparkling
Bald headed like a full moon shining
Singing out to the whole wide world like HEY...

[Chorus 2x]

[Ad lib]
If I wanna shave it close
Or if I wanna rock locks
That don't take a bit away
From the soul that I got
Dat da da dat da [4x]
If I wanna where it braided
All down my back
I don't see what wrong with that
Dat da da dat da [4x]

[Talking:]
Is that India.Arie?
Ooh look she cut her hair!
I like that, its kinda PHAT
I don't know if I could do it.
But it looks sharp, it looks nice on her
She got a nice shaped head
She got an apple head
I know right?
It's perfect.
