I was all alone yesterday when I realized -- I was having a kick-ass hair day, so I ran into the bathroom and took some photos.
Yes folks, my groovy afro-puff is growing and it looks awesome! Check it:
The one on the left is really pretty, but definitely too red for me. And with my round little face I doubt I could pull off that middle part. ( But I can still dream right?) The photo on the right is more my style anyway. Also I like the Ash Brown color better. If my hair looks like either of these by this time next year I'll be thrilled!
The best part of having my afro-puff of course is that all those glorious curls come with relatively no maintenance. I don't even use conditioner anymore. In fact I only "comb" my hair once a week. I wash my hair, towel dry it, then finger comb it with Aloe gel, and voila!
It's like hair magic!
p.s. So....if at anytime while reading this post you were wondering what this has to do with living in France I will tell you. It was all the totally gorgeous Black girls that I would spot while on various weekend trips to Paris that inspired me to finally let my hair go natural in the first place. If I could send "Thank You" cards I would!
