NAPPY!!


I did it! I went "natural".. what does that mean? it means after 20 years of having long, chemically relaxed hair, I let it GO! I have never been big on makeup or any of that, I am talking about my hair.. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket my crowning glory..I stopped getting relaxers and allowed my hair to grow in chemical free! I cut most of the relaxed part of and got kinky twists to grow it out to a length that would be manageable and fashion forward!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I finally took the twists out 2 weeks ago and I have been wearing my hair ever since.. I even went to to barber college and let them cut the remainder of the relaxer off and shape my "fro".. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket It was an adjustment at first, but I love it! now my folks say "NOW you look like you should be on the MIC".. LOL.. (secret pun).. but my very good friend asked my WHY did I do it.. I thought about it.. and I have always wanted to do it.. but I was afraid that I wouldn't be pretty anymore.. like my hair was the main reason why I was attractive.. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket (giving myself the whhadafuggevahnigguh face)shallow, I know but up until my recent freedom and liberation into single-ness.. EVERY significant relationship I have been in has been with a man that preferred my hair long and was outright AGAINST it being cut! So I guess being HAPPILY NAPPY is a declaration of independence in a way too.. Finally doing something I have always wanted to do but let other people convince me I shouldn't.. and the funniest side effect of the new look is that the men that are attracted to me now, appreciate my even more natural state.. VERB!..Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
