Hair protection

Informant: A family friend that lived in Timpson, Texas when she was younger and her grandmother would do this when combing girls hair in the 50’s.

Original Script: “When you would brush you hair, you never throw your hair outside, you had to burn it in the fire or in the iron heater because if someone didn’t like you they could get your hair and hoodoo ( the southern version the word voodoo) you which is put a spell on you”
