Researcher Professor Nick Martin said his team discovered variations in the trichohyalin gene, which was previously known to have a role in the development of hair follicles, are responsible for the curliness or straightness of hair, the Melbourne Herald-Sun reported Tuesday.
According to Martin:
Potentially we can now develop new treatments to make hair curlier or straighter, rather than treating the hair directly,” he said. “I will be discussing this with a major cosmetic company in Paris in January. [Read more here.]
My soul is curling up as we speak. They are actually wasting time, trying to figure out what makes curly, kinky, wavy, straight hair? They are going to waste money to get their so called solution put in a pill form? Oh My Gawd! So not only will the pill probably go on sale and costs God only knows how much, but they're going to be all sorts of concoctions and variations going on sale in the underground giving folks cancer and what not!
These variations are going to be undoubtedly sold in Hair Supply Stores on the corner right next to those damn lace front wigs! I digress, say it ain't so!
Once again, we are going to let society dictate to us what beautiful is, whats so-called wrong with us. So now we have pills to make our mahogany, cocoa, pecan colored skin turn white (i.e. Sammy Sosa, Lil Kim), but now were going to have some pills to straighten our hair?
I'm sorry ya'll can have it, I am gonna stick to my nappy roots. Good Luck with that!
