Why is 4a/4b hair not considered "wash n go" hair?

It's still curly hair.. you wash/wet it, apply your products, and air dry just like anyone else. If you ask me this is another one of those stupid slavery era/good hair/bad hair demons that needs to be slayed.

They cant wrap their minds around the fact that Nappy , kinky hair can curl or coil.

I feel you on this one.

I went last Wednesday to try a full head sew (none of my natural hair left out) in for the first time after hearing all the rave reviews about how much hair grows when doing this. Anyway, I love the sew in and it looks natural.

Oh, it was so funny when the braider saw my hair (I had my hair combed out into an afro) and she told me.."I've been braiding hair all day and I looked at your hair, thought to myself..ohhh, I hope her hair doesn't cut my hand. Your hair is actually very soft. I'm glad you have a good grade of hair."


I used to get tree braids but the stylist put rubberbands at the end of the braid on my hair!! No wonder my hair was breaking off. I may be sticking with sew ins from now on.

PHUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!! i drove through 3 frickin' cities to get to this beauty supply and got so excited that they actually carried the T. Waajid mist bodifier that I bought the last two w/o reading the ingredient list and their clearly posted (on 3 different signs throughout the store) there "NO REFUND OR EXCHANGE" policy.
Just incase anyone reading this post is trying to figure out why Im mad it's because Im vegan and her leave-in contains both silk protein and bee pollen. *heavy sigh*
Luckily I calmed down on the world's longest drive home and gave one bottle to my brother and I just might give the other to my oldest brother, or coworker who hides her damaged hair under plastic wigs.

Well I just came across this blog post and wanted to share it with the board:

http://mamasorganics.blogspot.com/20...-thoughts.html

Nappy, natural, kinky short, long, healthy hair is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL....no matter the texture, length or color...

If you are wondering if the Big Chop is right for you do some research first.
Look at other women with the Big Chop style, as they will offer you a level of self-confidence.


Ask yourself this, do I have the strength to be myself?

Do I have Love myself enough to look in the mirror and Love my Kinky curls?




Oh wait don't assume I am talking just for the sake of sake of saying this..

I did the Big Chop and let me tell you it was one of the most FREEING experiences I ever felt.

I had long dread locks down to the middle of my back!!!
Yes, it was a shock to many of my friends, family, co-workers.

Did I lose friends YES, did I have crazy stares YES, and did I care NO!!!
Did I wonder how people were going to accept me or reject me.. Yes I did..

I did not let that stop me from remembering ..that I was Beautiful no matter what ..



I gave myself positive Affirmations!!!

Let me share a few of my affirmations in hopes that they can help you as they did for me..when I did my Big Chop..

When I look in the mirror I see beauty.
I know who I am ..
I know I am A STRONG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN OF COLOR...

I am in Love with my curls, I love the way they bounce back
They stand at attention on the top of my head...Just like a CROWN

I am so much more than my hair
My hair does not define the powerful being that my God has created me to be...
However, I am forever grateful...

I can use my hair to enhance my beauty in whichever way I choose.
Because I AM BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I wish I had decided to go natural 3 weeks ago before I got my last relaxer. I had a nice 4 months of new growth then. New start for the new year, I guess. I'm definitely doing the BC before August...got a cruise to go on and there's no way I'm handling 2 textures while swimming for 7 days.
I really need to up date my Fotki.

I wanna blow dry my hair straight. I think I'm gonna do it. Not sure how, but I will. I hate to say it, but I'm missing my "silky st8". I know it's just a phase, but I haven't traightened my hair since going natural 17 months ago.

Sandy,

If I do straighten you, I promise to take care of you and take all of the necessary precautions to make sure that nothing happens to you.

I love you,
