Yeah, when I wear my hair down, it's not such a big deal, because I just tuck those strands behind my ears and no one can tell.

But I keep seeing all these curlies around with super cute hairstyles, where they pull some hair back on top, without parting their hair. And I'm always like "I can't wait to try that!" and then I do and it looks awful, because of these frizzy light hairs.

It does seem like they're growing longer, now that I've found NC and started a healthier routine. Maybe I'm on the right track?

Or for a more laid back look you could just do a single braid and swoop it into the ponytail like they do on the hills... I hope I was descriptive enough...

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
Don't you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do
