Nappy Does Not Equal Bad @ 23 Months

I got retightened today and boy does my hair and scalp feel good!

I went six weeks because Gigi had to move my appointment. Six week retightenings aren't all that pleasant for me, especially when I have a lot of new growth like I did this time. Because the hair at the base wants to join the lock next to it and Gigi had to gently pull it apart - ouch! Plus I washed my hair the night before. For some reason, that always causes my retightenings to not be as comfortable as usual.

But hey, look at me now at 23 months on loc'down with my cool new t-shirt that I treated myself to. Lisa turned me on to a site called CafePress. Once you're there, type in "Natural Hair" in the search box and all kinds of cool t-shirts and other natural items will display.

And remember, not only is it natural to be natural, but nappy does not equal bad. Free yo mind and the rest will follow!

Hair Style: Braidout with slightly damp hair,
roll ends up and under and tuck. Next morning, finger style.

Seeing your hair this length makes me want my hair that length sooo bad. But I've committed myself to relishing in my own moment and length.

You sure know how to work it and I absolutely love the t-shirt!

cv, clui, ss, anonymous, gn, lisa and jeannie...mad love. Thanks for stopping by and lifting a sister.

SS regarding "tucking:" take the end of the braid and roll it up (Like you're making a pinwheel or like you roll up a tortilla, then tuck the end under. (Silly, but that's the best way I can describe it.)
