Changing It Up

Somehow, while editing my newest post I've deleted this post.  So, I'll try to at least repost the pics.

I have been trying to find a way to allow my hair to dry on my freshly washed twist with out having to wear them out. 

So I decided to get a quick weave with and "invisible part".  I liked it soooo much that I had a wig made of the same hair.

Below, is the wig that I made from the hair that I used for the quick weave. 
 This was my first attempt at protecting my twist until they dry...
Not really a fan of this one, but it gets the job done!

Whew!!! I'm Baaaaackkkkk!


I had to take an unwanted extended break from blogging because of an addition to my work load.  But I'm baaaaaacccckkkkk!!! lol :) My friend Sha' sent me the picture above that I just HAD to share with you all!  It pretty much sums up why I went natural and despite the negative comments, (which are very few,but still exist) I am STAYING natural! I absolutely love it!
  Currently, I am teaching genetics to my class.  They had an activity the helped them to get to know their peers better (genetically speaking).  One question was do you have naturally curly hair.  And many (most of African descent) did not know that their hair was naturally curly.  I had a conversation with them about how "others" had led us to believe for so long that there was something wrong with the texture of our hair.  I gave them an explanation of why our hair was the way it was and that we are unique because of it.  If our African ancestors had straight hair their heads would have LITERALLY fried in the Saharan sun!  And for that reason, if no other, we have to realize that we are fearfully and WONDERFULLY made! *smooches*
