National Afro Day

LadyV69LadyV69 Posts: 3,397Registered Users
I'd almost forgotten that July 4th was National Afro Day until I just went on CurlyNikki. I wore a curly fro last year. Not quite sure how I'm doing my fro this year.

Anyone else plan to rock fros on the 4th?

    Thanks for reminding me. Technically I wear a fro everyday, but it is a curly fro. I'll definitey comb it out on Monday and sport a BAA.

    Yes, my daughter is participating. I even posted about it on my blog KandyLand so hopefully it will encourage other kids to rock their fros too. But my daughters hair is more curly, so hopefully it will look good.

    How ironic that the same day when mini rockets, fire crackers, and other sparking, flammable objects abound is when we're all gonna wear our hair out in afros. Michael Jackson Pepsi ad anyone???

    Michael Jackson didn't have a fro at the time of the accident, so I'm not too concerned.

    I still can't decide whether to blow my hair out or not though.

    I'm taking it international. :). Hope these elementary kids will keep their hands out if my hair.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    If I put my whipped shea butter/coconut/jojoba oil mix in my hair, am I going to be flammable, too? :shock:

    Maybe. At least a puff. My hair tangles so much, I don't know if wearing it "out" is worth it anymore. :(

    We're celebrating the 4th on the 3rd this year. I don't have plans for the 4th, but maybe I'll rock one around the house.

    Rocked a fro for the fourth.

    I look angry in this pic...I wasn't. My eyes also have a demonic glow...I assure you, I'm human.

    The lipstick? It's Maybelline. I'm not sure what the name of the color is though.
