Amanda's Picked out afro

Picked-out Afro

This was definitely a one time only thing. It was actually a style I rocked by default, but nevertheless, I wanted big hair. For some odd reason I decided to try dry-finger detangling after a long night of studying. I don’t know what convinced me to try finger detangling for the first time at 10 pm as if I don’t have work and class the next day but, I finished it — two hours later. As much attention and “I didn’t recognize you” whip flashes I got on campus, this was a mess trying to detangle. On top of a detangling disaster, the upkeep would have been a headache. The daily maintenance for a picked afro would stunt my length retention progress, and I am not a fan of breakage.
