Happy Independence/National Afro Day!

Hello loves,

I hope that you all enjoyed the 4th. In addition to celebrating our Nation’s Independence it’s also National Afro Day, who new! I sure didn’t. Naturalistas are encouraged to rock their kinky, curly fros in celebration.

Naturally I fully intended on participating. So, last night I put my dry hair in 8 chunky twists and pulled them back in a hair tie in an effort to add some length to my fro for today. I unravelled the twists and brushed them out with my denman brush.

I ended up loving the look but it wasn’t quite full enough to create the fro I was hoping for. Ah well!! Looks like I discovered another way to achieve a blowout look without heat!

Here are some pics

Massive Mane

It’s Saturday Loves!

I hope you all are having a great day. After my workout this morning I took a shower, rinsed my hair and put it in about 10 fairly chunky twists using Shea Moisture Curly Hair Milk. After some Saturday cleaning I unraveled the twists and separated them until POW! Massive mane achieved!

Repping Fro Friday in the “A”!!

Hello loves!

Well, my family and I have officially moved to Atlanta! I’m so excited about this next chapter of our lives. God has been at the forefront of this move and we will continue to look to Him for guidance.

I was off from work all week to get us all settled in. Things have been great so far. I love our new apartment despite how much smaller it is from our house in FL. It’s perfect…for now.

I had the pleasure of running into natural hair icon and inspiration Natural Chica aka Nikki Mae in the grocery store. I spotted here mega fro a mile away. Kinda made my week!

And now in honor of Fro Friday I’m still rocking my fro in the “A”!!! Here are some pics.

Going out big!

Hello loves!

Well, this week is my last week in Florida before my family and I relocate to Georgia! I’m so excited to start a adventure in a new city. But first…you know I’ve gotta go out big!

Yesterday at work I was totally giving them life at work with this ridiculously awesome fro! Loved it! I’m really going to miss inspiring my coworkers and making the place more exciting. But, onward and upward!

Curly Fro!

So you all know how much I LOVE rocking a fro. Well, today of course is no exception. This curly fro today is giving me so much life! Something about its shape is just amazing.

I think I was able to achieve this look by wearing a chunky twist out yesterday (using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk) and not doing anything to my hair before bed. I just wore my bonnet as usual. And this morning, applied some Eco Styler Gel and pow! In love!

Work Fro Fun

I work in a corporate environment and because of that one of the most fun things for me to do with my hair is rock a nice big curly fro. My co-workers are so intrigued and amazed by it. It’s far from conventional but my big goal is to kill it every time. I think I managed to do it again.

Message: don’t be afraid to rock a fro at work. You are beautiful and so is your fro!
