A 20 year old woman survived a bullet fired at her head – after it got tangled up in her hair weave. The young lady from Kansas City, escaped uninjured after her ex-boyfriend allegedly shot at her car in the parking lot of a convenience store. She told police that she was in her car at around 11.25pm when a man flagged her down. When she stopped, the man told her that her ex-boyfriend still loved her.
When the young woman replied ‘Well, I don’t love him’ her response was met with gunshots which shattered her rear window. She says that she saw her ex firing a handgun, and promptly floored the accelerator and got out of there.
After escaping, she called police who extracted a bullet from her hairpiece!! It seems the bullet struck her car’s headrest before getting caught in her hair.Apart from a slight headache, the woman was uninjured. Police arrested her ex-boyfriend and his companion a shorty afterwards.
So now I see that we have been going about things all wrong. Here we have been giving the girls safe shelter at the Crisis center when all she really needed was a good hairdo!! Thank goodness that young woman wasn’t having a bad hair day hehehe! That must be the definition of a good hair day when your weave saves your life!
Seriously though folks. I am a bit fascinated by this whole hair extention thing. We have a woman at the shelter who has lived there a long time and I have seen her put extentions and braids on the other african women many times and I have to admit I am a bit envious! I think they look so nice when they are finished and you can set in long hair, curls, whatever color or texture you want. I have pin-straight fine hair and have always admired my girl friend from Brazil who can come home with masses of brown curls and keep them in for many months. But there is the catch for me I think. I don’t know if I could stand keeping them in. I imagine they must itch or feel somehow uncomfortable…and I am not good at making sacrafices for beauty. However if I ever do decide to get myself extentions I have one more good excuse. They could save my life!!!
Have a great weekend!!
