Woohoo! Another afro is born. For months, actually for almost a year, my friend Solo had been claiming she was going to go natural yet in the same sentence would say she’d look ugly or wouldn’t be able to pull off natural like I do. Umm, I’m no expert and when I first cut my hair, I had no idea what I was doing nor that I’d get to the stage I am at now. And for every conversation we’d have on natural hair, Solo would always have an excuse why she would back track and not do it. “I had a fro before and it has hard, unmanageable and ugly”, “My hair’s not soft like yours”, “What do you do to your hair? So much work, I could never”
Not to dismiss her concerns but she echoed everything I used to think before I cut my hair. But I jumped and was so pleasantly surprised by the results. I always knew Solo would be able to rock a short fro, her bone structure is amazing and by having the TWA, they’d be even more enhanced. Well last month she finally did it! And she dyed it red too!
“Oh my word! I actually look very nice with short hair”
Yes, Solo, you sure do!
