when being ghetto is good

It's ghetto. But, I'd do it and would not be shamed... mainly because I grew up in the hood and moved to the suburbs. Sometimes you just have to surprise 'em take it back to the hood. LOL

Seriously, I am all for finding methods to gain sleeping hours, especially since I'm holding down an extra gig. It almost makes me want to BC, so I won't have to fight multiple textures. I loved getting up, wetting my entire head and having it dry AND looking like something by the time I made it to work.

Too true !

So I told my mom the story and she looked at me like . I promptly told her that my homies at NC.com have pronounced me a "genius, smart, resourceful, brilliant and an efficient time manager". She basically said she will pretend not to know me if she sees me in the bathroom.

Loved your story subbrock! Work them curls

This is admittedly ghetto but I have a long mass transit commute in the am which includes a 30 min ferry ride. To save time I wear a scarf/ hat to the ferry and do my hair (fully) in the ladies room (some actually have seats). As women parade in and out I am shamelessly taking down twists, sealing my ends pinning, scrunching, spraying my hair for hold. You'd think I was in my home bedroom, lol, with all that. It is a 25 min production (but adds to my sleep time and I'm never late this way).

But it has served an educational purpose. 1 woman approached me yesterday thrilled to see me again so that she could get the goods on all the products I was using and what my regimen was and to praise my hair (it's length, curl pattern, healthy natural look). She actually took my picture ! Of course I let her know all about NC.com. So it seems my ghetto hair routine was inspirational to another curly

I take a commuter bus from Virginia to DC...need I say more.

Another ferry trip, another convert. So this morning as I was in full twist out hair production mode in the ferry bathroom another lady stopped me to ask what cream I was using (QHemet's) and what my hair routine was. I told her about NC.com of course. At the end she went to shake my hand (I told her it was greasy) and she said that's alright and she patted her hair w/ the qhemet's that transferred during the handshake, lol. I am a true commuter celebrity . When TMZ starts to stalk me in the bathroom I'll know I've made it!
