As a child I was not able to understand why my see-through white hair (of which there were only 30 on my entire head) would not allow me to rock the afro-puffs. There is a hilariously sad photo of me at like 4 with these sprouts of hair and 500 bobby pins on each side of my head as my parents tried to fulfill my deep desire for puffs. Tragically funny. Must find that...
