I LOVE this picture...hair out and Free Fro'in...I like to wear my hair OUT!!!!!!! I wore a protective style of cornrows once this winter for about 4 weeks and most recently I wore two strand twist for 2 weeks, but damn it I like my fro to be FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Some would say that wearing your hair "out" all the time is not good, especially during the winter months. I think I have had great growth in the 10 months that I've been natural but would I have even more growth if I wore my hair in protective styles more often???that's the question.
As summer approaches in the Twin cities I can't wait to flaunt my kinks in the glistening sun. I think i will pay particular attention to my hairs growth this summer. When I was relaxed my hair grew more in summer months than it did in the winter and I think the same will hold true now that I'm natural.
I plan to keep a close eye on my hairs growth from April to September...who knows I may have to reevaluate the benefits of protective styling this coming winter, but for now I am looking forward to summer and the growth that I hope the heat and humidity bring my hair.
Oh yeah...I plan on doing some kind color in the next few months (April or May) in the form of a rinse. I don't want to deal with the drying effects that come along with permanent color...at least now. I do love me some summer hi-lights so I may have to revisit the issue of permanent hair color next summer.
