I despair of my hair, it’s such a silly thing, it kind of resembles a messy ball of string! Everybody has one little thing they wish they could change about themselves, right? For one little girl, that one thing is her hair. It just won’t behave the way she wants it to. It curls up, it hangs straight, it sticks out all over the place! It’s such hard work. What’s a girl to do? Don’t despair, learn to be proud of your messy hair!
