Straight Hair and Rag Sausages

Dear Sepia Saturday.

You wanted photos of hair this week.  Just look at the beautiful photos members have been posting.  But let me remind you that not all of us have beautiful, lush, gleaming sensual rolls of thick, lustrous, magniificent hair..  Some of us for the whole of our lives have had thin, stringy, sparse, dull, straight, straight hair which at a time when straight  hair was unfashionable hair  needed to be tortured with strips of rag for hours to have any semblance of a Shirley Temple curl for a special occasion.

Respectfully,  boundforoz

The only evidence I have of rag “sausages” on the girl on the right. Newstead 1936.
