    I have no idea how to make my hair fro! I've always wanted to make it do that and all I get is a hot mess. 🙁 help!

    Our little bitty down is holding its parade on Sunday – and of course they are calling for rain. But Monday the 4th, It's on! Deep conditioning time.

  • LadyV69 says:

    Count me in! Not sure if I'll wear a curly fro or a blown out one yet. It depends how hot it is. But I'm definitely down!

  • Tonia says:

    Thanks for reminding me. I really need to order some shirts too. I have been saving this link forever! Anyhow, there a shirt that says ruck felaxers(good for sassy naturals) and a length check one with measurement lines on the back…I thought that was too ingenious! I'll prob join in the fro-itude it's been really damp in S.E. Texas so I don't really have to worry about dryness..I think. Texas weather is so unpredictable.

    Fire & afros don't mix!

  • JazBNatural says:

    hey if any of you do this please be careful of fireworks and sparklers burning your hair! We wouldn't want any more MJ moments.

    I just go my hair put up in twists on Tuesday and I plan to wear them for a couple weeks. So I can't rock my fro.

    @ Anonymous 11:35 AM: try cafepress.com. That's where I get my t-shirts and bags. My favorite bag is K*I*N*K*Y (Keep It Natural, Know Yourself). I don't really have a favorite t-shirt, I love them all 🙂

    Yeah, I'm gonna braid/twist-out for the 4th, then pick it out a little to make it even bigger!

    I will a rock a Pam Grier fro! I get more compliments from men of different races when I rock the fro…so why not. A girl never gets tired of compliments.

  • NaturalMe72 says:

    I love the logo! I've been wearing my hair in protective styles for 8 months. I'll attempt to wear a fro for the Fourth.

    Have a safe holiday everyone.

    I'm wit it!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    I'd say just being natural counts, lol! Although I have no where to go on the 4th (sad face), I'll probably rock a bun or TnC… but yeah, probably a bun 🙂 I've been lazy.

    does a wng or afro puff count?

  • Cailín says:
