This is me circa January 2005…I think.
In the chapter room. Still two-strand. I was so CRUNK!
I was killing them with this style! Cypress hooked me up! This was the night after I got it done. Y’all know it shrunk up after I took a shower! Such is the way of natural hair…
At Mrs. Tarver’s 50th birthday party. Two-strand twist after a few weeks.
After a press. I needed to get my hair done ASAP and couldn’t get in touch with anyone. I’d just started a new job and didn’t wanna start no mess by showing up with my fro. So I got it pressed. It caused a lot of damage, and I knew it would. The hair loss wasn’t a result. It’s been an issue since 1998. I haven’t found anything to fix it (including creams, gels, herbs, steroids, injections…you name it).
May 2006 with my mommy!
Same style as above. Even though we were both born in Florida, this was our first time at Disney. And she was celebrating her 3 month breast-reduction anniversary!
Shortly after I saw Soror Krystl at the MLK Jr. Day march, I set up my appointment. No need to keep dragging my feet. These are my test locs.
February 1, 2007.
The eve of my SL journey beginning. My very last twist-out. *sniff sniff*
Why is that one twist up like an alfalfa sprout?? 🙂
And these were actually taken on the same day. Why I look pale and sickly in one, and slightly constipated in the other, I don’t know.
