Hair-splitting

When I started having my hair done by Ipe, one of the first things he taught me was, “Learn to accept your curls.” I tried—oh how I tried—and I believe I’ve reached a certain level of peace with how my locks look. Still there are times when I look at the mane in the mirror and ask myself, “Can I change its waves?”

The option of hair straightening is out; as a wise gay once told me, “Umamin ka na bakla ka, ‘wag ka lang umamin na nagpa-straight ka,” which can also pertain to sexual behavior as well. I can go semi-kal once again; I wore my hair short for more than five years before. Coloring my hair or even have it streaked is out of the question—I’m fine with my ever-increasing white hair. Gosh what else can I do to my hair?

Yep. That's Ipe. He told me the same thing, to love my natural waves (when I so wanted to relax it). My hair loves him though, and it's aching for his magical hands again for a trim.
