My daughter braided my hair for a crinkle style but she did such a good job I kept it in and wore it a couple of days. I would not have taken it down so quicklly but I wanted a more sophisticated style for Christmas day which is the photo with the red blouse on. Sorry that one is dark. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and my hope is also that everyone has a blessed and wonderful new years. :-)

This is the third day after the pipe cleaners were taken out. It really just kept getting better. I would definately do it again. I kept them in for about a week and an half. I could have went longer but I needed to wash my hair. The curls just kept falling and looking like waves. I really enjoyed the style. Thanks to the reader of my blog that suggested pipe cleaners. At this point I am not going to cut my locks. I seriously thought about it one day and it hit me as to what I would do with my hair if I did not have locks. Straight styles are out of the question. So I would definately still be natural. The fact that I would have to cut my hair back down to a teeny weeny afro was another reason I decided to wait. LOL One day I will but not right now. Stay blessed! :-)

First Day Sans Pipe Cleaners

These are pics of me on the first day I took the pipe cleancers out. Unfortunately I just have pics of me with people. the hair is not really show cased. But I picked the pics that show the hair the best. I really liked it!

These are pics of my hair the second day the pipe cleaners were taken out. Still in love with the style.

Pipe Cleaners

In a previous post I had mentioned that I was getting a little bored with the length of my hair and that I was considering cutting my locks out. Someone commented that I should try pipe cleaners as a sytle option. Well I did and these pics are the result. I wore the pipe cleaners for a couple of days and then I took them out. The pics really don't do the style justice. I really liked it and received a lot of compliments. In my next post I will show pics of what it looked like when I took them out.

Love my locks but....

Thinking of cutting them off. It will be five years this November and I am seriously considering it. Not sure yet, but maybe. I will never to go back straight but I will not have locks. Have not made my mind up yet though. It's just one of those things when it's time for a new beginning. IF and I do mean if I do, it will be one of the hardest things I've done in my life. My locks are a part of me. Decisions, decisions!!!?????

PS Does anyone know of a good natural stylist in the Detroit area?

My Bun

I put my hair in a high ponytail and tucked it under in the back securing it with bobby pins. It literally only takes about 5-10 minutes to do. And it only takes that long cause I like a smoothe bun. I like it. I can see me wearing this a lot this summer cause it is off my neck. I was all dolled up for a date with hubby.......

But this is how I usually wear my hair. I keep saying that after my re-tights I am going to give myself a wet set so that I can have a little style to my hair on a daily basis but it never happens. LOL

Me before locks

This is a pic of me when I was 29 and had a perm. I am going to post some more pics of me with a perm when I was about 38 and my hair was long right before the big chop, but for now have a look at this. LOL!

Up Do

This is me back in December of 2010. I had wet set my hair on sponge rollers and got under the dryer. Then I put it up in this up do. I literally just grabbed some hair and started pinning it up with bobbie pins. I liked the end result. More pics to come of my hair in 2011 As always stay blessed! :-)
