My secret's my enzyme.
I looked like a boy at ten. Not due to lice though. My mom said she couldn't be bothered combing the knots out of my hair, so she kept it short. I guess I had no say back then. I really didn't mind as I was a tomboy anyhow. Plus I was on a swim team... easier with the chlorine, caps etc.
This was in Toronto Canada when I was 10...
How cute!!!! And remember in the 80s boy cuts were very popular. So we were being trendy 10-year-olds in addition to being licey and in knots.
