Vintage Fro

I really really REALLY never really do this, because I know that this is napp neglect, punishable with forty years in the slammer, but I have been diggin the retro 70's vibe I get with the picked out fro lately.  I use to not really care for looking like the 70's with the fro, but lately my mind has changed drastically.

Probably 3-4 years ago, I would not like this short picked out afro on me, but the more mature I get in this whole natural hair journey, the more open I am to different natural hair looks (plus I have been on my vintage obsession lately.  Everything I am wearing is vintage from head to toe, including the 1960's purse) .  That is why I always want to tell anyone who is looking to go natural to try it out and see if you like it.  How would you ever know as long as you live that natural hair is "not for you" when you have never tried it before?  It is like if someone has a plate of collard greens, mac n cheese, chicken and hot butter rolls on the table, and someone says, "I don't like that" then after you give the person the ish face you ask them, "Why not? Are you crazy?"  then they tell you, "Oh, I don't like it because I never had any of that stuff before but I know I won't like it, it's not for me?"

And that person who is too afraid to try something new will miss out on the best daggone meal they ever ate in their entire life because they are too afraid to try new things.  Did that make sense?  I hope so because I am known to create an example and make the whole concept way more confusing than the original scenario.

Anyway, I spritz my hair every morning with World of Curls Regular Comb Out Spray, add a little shea butter for shine, pick it very very very lightly to lift the fro a little with the awesome Magic Star Jumbo Rake comb to add volume, and roll out.   All this takes less than 7 minutes.

  Like I said before, I am sick of twists right now, I wanna let my twa shine!

I am obsessed with owls right now.  I don't know why, I just am.  I was so stoked when I found this owl bag. 

Okay, hold on, wait, before you laugh at this:

this pose was soooo NOT my idea. I let the photographer (my boyfriend) do this to me. He did such a good job last time with his alley shots that I let him have creative control on one shot. But well, I let you be the judge on that pic! LMAO

You know, sometimes you have to laugh at yourself, and not be afraid to laugh at your self.  We all make mistakes, we all have flaws, and we all are not perfect.  Life is too short to be embarrassed.

Yeah, as you can see, I am pretty much keeping it simple with my hair right now.  It is that 10% of the month wear I get to enjoy wearing my hair out.   Even though I am not doing "protective styles" in the traditional sense (braids, twists, etc etc), I am still keeping the amount of manipulation  I do to my  hair to a minimal, even though I pick it out a little in the morning.  The reason why I believe that it can be somewhat beneficial (it is still not a good idea, so don't go telling nobody Ms-gg said a picked out fro is a protective style lol!) is because when I comb my hair, I am distributing the spritz and Shea butter through my fro.  So right now, it works for me, and I'm going to do it until I get tired of the vintage fro.  Hope you guys have a happy Saturday!  See ya later :)
