That’s Deep …


On WordPress, you get a Site Stats page which tells you when your website has been accessed from other sites/links. Well, a few days ago, I noticed I was getting a few referrals from this site. I clicked the link and … wha?!?! It was my entire post, pic included, on Breakage vs. New Hair … wait for it … translated in FRENCH!!!

Cheveux cassés ou cheveux qui poussent ?

Re !
Et oui, comme d’hab, quand le post est trop court, je reviens pour une deuxième session. Là, ça va être un court – enfin j’espère – et pratique.Comme pour mon cas, j’imagine qu’il vous est déjà arrivé à toutes de rester perplexe devant vos cheveux en constatant une petite touffe hirsute bien plus courte que le reste qui semble jaillir du cuir chevelu, nan ? Mais siiii, vous savez, ça ressemble à des cheveux de bébé, un peu comme ça…

I was like, “Whoah!” Now, some may have been annoyed that their blog was reposted without a request/permission. But, seriously, though the thought crossed my mind, I was too flattered to worry about it!

  1. This is funny! I have seen people pictures used on other sites but not a translation in another language of someone else’s blog. It is good that you are flattered, many would not be. 🙂


  2. Miche’al, when I first saw it, I had that double take moment as everyone has asked me if they can repost so far. But, you know, I know everyone is not an expert about blog “protocol” (shoot, I’m not … just trying to figure it out as I go along). So, I also felt like it was done in a genuine way, wanting to share information with others and knowing that many of her audience might not understand English. A hyperlink wouldn’t work, so she translated but still included the link back to my site (as you guys noted). So, it’s all good=). It’s nice to find out that people are “talking” about your site. I’ve found referrers from the long hair care forums and another forum yesterday where woman whose names I haven’t seen in the comments have provided links to my site and recommended a style or two. It’s pretty cool=).


  3. Dear Shelli
    I have never left comments on a French blog….. Then imagine on an American blog ? 😉
    But after reading your post, it became as an obligation !
    I am in transition (last relaxer in January 2011), living in Guadeloupe (French West Indies) and reading regularly the French blog which you mentioned : And so I knew your blog (by “clicking” under the pic.) Since, I read to you daily.
    Your hair are so healthy and gorgeous (OMG). But especially, I like your realistic way of telling us your everyday hair (and “non-hair”) life. It gives me a lot of comfort, support and sometimes ideas ! Thus, do be proud!!!
    Friendly thoughts.
    P.S. Thank you for being indulgent for my English, but my studies are now very distant !!


    • OMG Natasha, you just made my day!! Your message warmed my heart as I hope that I make everyone feel the same!! If there is every anything that you want me to talk about, please let me know and I’ll do my best to tell you what I know or research it to find some answers. I hope you continue to visit and find things that are helpful to you on your natural hair journey! Perhaps one day soon you can send me your transition story=). And though your English may not be perfect, it was very good in that I understood everything you were saying. Thank you again for the feedback and support. I am truly humbled by and appreciative of it!!
