So I finally got my hands on a proper camera to take pictures of my hair so y’all can see what it really looks like 🙂
My hair is a year and a couple months old (I did my big chop in October 2010), has been dyed at least 3 times with dark and lovely dyes and twice with henna and it’s texture is tightly coiled, slightly rough to the touch when not moisturized well. I basically have a wirey cotton ball growing out of my scalp! lol!
It refuses to shine and such like other afro hair textures I see online so I’ve concluded that’s due to the type of hair I have or the products-one of the two! I’ve also had to learn to accept it as it is! I know a lot of us look at pictures on blogs and wonder why our hair doesn’t look like that or behave like that or grow as fast. Just do the best you can and love it for what it is! 🙂
My hair is in what I call a fluffy braid out because when I unbraided it in the morning I sprayed it with some JO’M orange oil spray which made it fluff out or frizz out a little giving the volume effect it currently has. My hair is actually not that thick though I wish it was!
side-note: I forgot to put makeup on so forgive my naked unpainted face, lol, *cringe*
Just noticed how unkempt my edges are, hmmmm. Might start using my Fantasia IC Olive hair polisher after all!
Please feel free to share pictures of your afro for me to post! 🙂
