Good morning! I know I look goofy...I was laughing at the thought of posting this.
I wanted to share a pic I snagged on Sunday night. I had just washed my hair and wrapped it up in a towel. Isn't shrinkage magical? I'm not being sarcastic...it really is a magical wonder!
Shrinkage is basically what our curls do when wet. They curl up, really small. If it's wet and I do nothing to it and just let it dry like that, it hugs my scalp in a fro. Some women really dislike shrinkage, because they want to show the length of their hair. Nothing wrong with that. But I think it just shows how cool we are...one day we can rock it short-short, in an afro. The next day we can rock it big and blown out.
Oh and that paper on the wall is a quote to keep me on track. It says, "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." I believe it's by Henry David Thoreau.
Bye for now! I have a really great story to tell my next post. I am going out of the country on Saturday, so I hope to post at least once more before then.
