Aunt Jemima Red

I'm a huge fan of head wraps and scarves. I love to wrap my hair. When the gray is at my temples I cover the front part to conceal my unacceptance of going all the way grey. It's a game I play with myself almost every three months. However I have a bet with my husband come the big sixty I'm all in. But for now my agreement is to wear scarves and wraps in many different colors and prints. It might sound a little crazy, but I have this integrity thing with Aunt Jemima. My silent agreement with her and myself is no red Aunt Jemima scarves. The old school ones from the pancake box. Although her image has been up graded and she now has a perm. I still hold the honor of her history, that the red scarve is all hers. Its her crown and glory!
