    1. he women in Schreiber’s study recovered fully fromdepression only after they realized that they did not need tobe totally capable, always “strong,” while the Black West-Indian Canadian women in this study continued to experiencedepression periodically, at the same time, managing it by beingstrong

      SO the women who realized that they didn't need to be strong were able to fully recover from depression

      the women who manage the depression by being strong still experienced this periodically- maybe even more so.

      Sarah was trying to manage by being strong- so strong that she didn't need her father "quote from landlady" but in her attempt to be strong she was losing her mind, will to live, and hair

    2. When comparing themselves to women ofthe dominant culture, they thought the sentimental order(Glaser & Strauss, 1971) or cultural right way of doing thingswas to be stronger

      because sarah couldn't be stronger this made her hair fall out. not necesarily the cause but its a factor. her lack of blackness devoids her of her "strength". "the cultural way of doing things was to be stronger" Sarah didn't have that mindset to be stronger. furthermore, neither did the queen. She is the dominant culture and she seem's to be one of the dominant "selves" in sarah.

      Sarah's loss of crown is because she was dwelling on her life as a caucasion

    1. Under such expectations, it was sometimes difficult for a strong woman torally the support of family for a divorce or to critically examine the physi-cal, economic, and emotional costs of “keeping your head above water...regardless of what your husband or boyfriend is putting you through” (36,widowed mother). A commitment to the discourse of strength and its atten-dant construction of a good Black woman thus could mask over realities ofinfidelity, marital disappointment, and being “treated... like dirt

      The marriage between the mother and father crumpled and the mother slowly lost her mind and her hair.

    2. the strength discourse gathers its authority not from empirical inves-tigation but from contrasting Black women to normatively feminine, white,middle-class women.

      This can fit with her hair being symbolized as her strength. because her hair is quite literally an exact opposite of her other very white-passing demeaner. She states thats the one prominent thing of her african american heritage. When she loses that, she loses her strength to go on.

    3. strength is a nat-ural quality of Black women and a litmus test for their womanhood,

      Another reason why hair is a good symbolism for strength: both kinky curly hair and strength are "natural qualities" to being a black woman.

      As said, when she begins to lack that she doesn't feel as though she deserves to even live.

    1. Ceramic flat irons

      From article: Temp not higher than 175 C, flat iron should not be used more than once a week (oops) "If there is a temperature setting on the device, it should be set no higher than 175C or on the low/medium setting. How frequently the flat iron can be used depends on the individual’s hair type, but should probably not be used more than one time per week."

    1. The main important point is not to shampoo your hair too often. Depending on the culture in which you live, washing the hair no more often than every 1-4 weeks may be the best way to have healthy hair.
