So, a little over a year ago I cut my hair down to like about 1 inch or so, to get rid of all the relaxed parts in order to grow my hair out with it's natural texture. It was the third time I'd done it (the other two times I punked out a few months shy of the one year mark). Finally I settled in nicely to my naturalness and have been sporting a blow out 'fro and loving it.
Many of my friends have been growing beautiful, neat, highly style able locs (can you spot the FIVE lovely loc'd ladies in this pic? HINT: I'm not one of them...I'm wearing braids). I admired how it afforded them the best of both worlds...natural texture as well as length. It seemed like they grew over the course of a couple of months, when in actuality it took them 4+ years to achieve the glorious lengths that they sport. Everyone I ask says the same thing...that it's a journey. Could I possibly have the strength or patience to embark on such a journey?
should I or shouldn't I?
*ahh* we've had some good times my 'fro and I...
*sigh* but I'll MISS my cornrow/'fro combo.
let the journey begin...
P.S. Coles, thanks for the gentle nudge *wink*.
