Happy 4th Nappiversary!

I'm a mess....

I posted the other day that my nappiversary was on Friday when it's really today. Today I celebrate 4 years of having beautiful nappy hair.

Granted I've had it my whole life but it wasn't until 4 years ago when I realized just how beautiful and STRONG my natural hair is.

I've said it before but celebrating hair isn't something everyone will understand. Most have to have GONE there to get it. To some it is silly. Others could care less. But to me...

Well...considering that have 2 hair videos, have had 2 hair blogs and take pride in being a Black woman with natural means a great deal!! And when I celebrated my 1st Nappiversary, I threw a party!!! Maybe I'll do that for the 5th Anniversary.

I thought about doing a 4-year video but uhh....I was too lazy. You can check out Year 3 video HERE and Year 1 video...

To celebrate my hair's nappiversary, I did some random shots of the locs.

(LMAO @ the washcloths and my muscle arm.
I think I pump too much iron, yall.)

Those are my babies, fam.

Damn, I love my hair. It really don't make no sense.

And you know it's serious when you have to bring out the Ebonics.

Those thinking about going natural or loc'ing, seriously,

DO IT!! But do it because you want to. And don't worry about what other people think. A good 98% of my support came from the internet when I first went natural. Had I listened to what stupid ex boyfriends, friends, family members or f-ing corporate America thought/said.....I would not have done it.


I dedicate this post to Yolanda. In the words of RuPaul (who I love!), So proud of you!
