The Fro




yep that's me! (I mentioned a while back that i totally looked like my graphic in my TC signature) I have been growing my hair out naturally for the past what, I think I think....yea 8 months now...now before you get to afraid...that's me last night after I washed my hair out, so it wasn't fully picked out and I didn't blow dry it out with a comb....but honestly the more and more i look at it, its cute!

I don't really know what made me SNAP out and just determine that i wanted to go natural...I think its because eventually I want to have my hair in locs...

YES locs! but this CRAZY in between phase is really really really killing me...I mean really...

It also doesn't help that I came into work today with it picked out a little in a fro with BIG silver hoop earrings....and my boss was like, OMG you look like Angela Davis...its so cute...

but anyways...its funny because I know I look different...like I have said before I have many different looks to me...but its funny to walk around with a fro and notice all the crazy looks you get...this one lady was just looking at me like I was a Martian or something...eyes LOCKED in....but that's how some folks are, you know...

or maybe its really just me being self conscious because I have never had my hair out like this...

I sent my brother the pic last night and said "your other brother" he called me dying laughing...because I honestly look like him with my hair like this...

Anyways...just another part in the hair chronicles....you guys KNOW how i am about my hair...OFF the HOOK right...

Tonight I get it pressed out...i am nervous about that too...but hey change is GOOD!

UPDATE:

So here is how IT (myhair) looks pressed out:

That is me and one of my line sisters at our other line sisters wedding on Saturday night. I am the one in the pink/peach top it came out really nice..(the press)

ok...when you sent me this pick this morning, I was like....WAT IN THEE WORL'! You look like you need to have one of them black pick combs with the fist on them sittin' at the top of yo head.
Don't get me wrong....I love the fro...and 'o natural' is what I'm all about, but you've got to maintain. That's why I told you it was a hot mess! Comb that mutha out, or put some twist in it or something. Glad to hear that you pulled it together for work though. Good luck with the press'n'curl. But, I kinda think you don't need it just yet though. You could work the short natural do with not heat for now.

@kc-you SO make my day! you always have me laughin...glad to know it grew on you a little...even if a little...lol...naw I have to get it pressed out becuase I have an evening wedding to attend tomorrow night...PLUS i really want to know how long my hair is straight...i am not sold on "training" my hair to be naturally straight...so don't look for it to be getting pressed out all the time..but we shall see how it turns out with press and lots of curls tonight...

I'm interested in seeing the 'locks. I think that would be a good look.

@mikesee-me too! I am thinking that by this time next year they will be in full swing (as in at least started and almost fully loced up) Imma get it poppin this fall sometime...I was going to start them around my birthday, BUT decided against that because the first month or so is going to be really hard for me to get used to them...lol...and we ALL KNOW how I am with my birthday...so we won't do that...lol...but YES...I think it would be a good look too...preciate ya!

Its sooo cute! I couldn't do the in between phase before I got my hair loced so I wore braids all summer and I mean ALL summer LOL...I finally took them out and my roomie twisted them for me and I've been getting them twisted once a month since then. I wish I had the guts to do that phase cause I've seen some jazzy sistas with FLY hair LOL...

Change is good either way you'll still pull it off :)

Have a wonderful weekend

@honey-I have been wearing braids since the end of last summer! My hair is a lot longer than it looks right here...BUT the reality is I have extremely kinky hair...so it draws up...lol...
folk said to me last night, "I don't know why you are trippin I told you that it was going to be an adjustment during the 'in between phase'"
he kills me thinking he knows everything about everything including hair!

Imma get mines soon...I can't wait to see yours in person

jus butterfli said...

hey you!

i'm so proud of you and jealous too! i tried to go natural a couple of years ago and my shit... oops, i meant my hair just wasn't getting kinky enough to hold the twists! even after about FIVE months. one of my co-workers was like... "well, you might have to cut it all off and start fresh". at that point i ran skrait... not straight... to the store and got a perm! (LOL) my brother has a head full of beautiful shoulder length locs that started out as lil one inch twists. i SO hate him!! (LOL)

anyway... jus floating thru to say happy friday!! :D

peace momma!

you look beautiful and being compared to angela davis is one hella compliment. thanks for stopping by my spot even though i've been slow in coming by yours. too busy for my own good. your support means much to me.
have a truly blessed weekend

@jus-I tried it like that a couple of years ago too...but this time I took a different approach...the last time I had gotten a perm was the beginning of July...my hair was pretty short...so I went with the weave first, and then once I took that out I have just kept it braided and kept getting it trimmed and last time all the perm was gone (2 months ago) they wanted me to get twists last night, but I am not sure if I am ready for that...I have hang time...it looks pretty good...but being that I didn't leave the hair salon until midnight, I had it wrapped up when I left...but I'll take a picture today so that you all can see the result...

I am definitely going to try a couple of OTHER natural styles before I totally commit to locs...

@blu-it was a helva a complement! I was really pleased to hear that because Angela Davis is ONE of the individuals that I admire! Thanks for finding time to stop past and I totally understand...sometimes wee just get busy...

Tasha said...

Your fro is too cute! I'm thinking about going natural also, this fried and laid to the side relaxer mess is killing me. I've got braids right now, so I'm thinking I might keep it braided till the end of the year and see what it do at that point. I can't wait to see it all loced up, but you can definitely work that fro for a while.

@tasha-THANKYA Kindly!!!! that's how I started out...I just did braids and kept getting trims...and the last time (Jan) I got the perm cut out and then got braids again...so when I took them out it was all natural...she pressed the fool out my hair though....

Shai said...

You look so cute in the pressed hair pic. I can barely see you in the fro pic.

I have tried natural with braids, pressing and hairpieces. I don't look so good with a fro and my hair is thicker in places than others of my fro is not as full.
