Oh No I Didn't!!!

Oh yes I did....

I cut my hair on my own, thinking I was slick and why pay a man 10 bucks to do something that I used to do all the time when my hair was still relaxed. But now that I'm natural (4 months in YAY!) I was feeling a little clipper happy I guess and saw a stray straight hair and went for it. Only to realize a moment too late that I also had chopped a large portion off the part in front of that little lone hair. I was devastated after I saw the end result.

Remedy: I now have learned how to scrunch, poof and prod my hair into spots that I want to cover up.

It all worked out in the end and I officially wore my first headband style tonight to my meeting for religion! Hay! Ohhh!!!

The proof is in the picture dearies......

My best,

Anatomy of a Fro...

Lately I've been checking out my hair and I'm growing more and more of a fondness for it as the days go by. I know now that it likes lots of moisture and it retains it and holds it inward like a greedy only child. It funny, some days I will completely douse it with oils and bomb it from every which direction and then by lunchtime I'll happen to glance into a mirror and it appears that my hair is bone dry. Only I'll run my fingers into the growth and it will come out as slick as that oil spill in the Gulf right now. (ummm....too soon to joke?)

So that's why I say that it really does hide the moisture that it retains. I have been using African Black soap from Smell Goods '98 that I spoke about in this post about my hair shampoo bar.

I am still on the hunt for a great headband. I am not at the point of a puff yet, but slowly but surely. I'm in no rush for it to grow up and skip steps of growth. I'm a mama, what can I say? ;o)

My best,
