We’ll go to all the cookouts, firework displays, and family events with our fros big and beautiful… rocking curly and natural hair paraphernalia!
I designed the logo, so feel free to use it for your website, blog or to make your own iron on transfer shirt. Please spread the word!

Planning to rock your natural hair in all its fierceness on the 4th? Upload your pic tomorrow in the comments below!
where do I post my pics???
This should really be on a tee; I'd buy it!
how do you do the logo iron on??
Just did a dry run on mine. I had twists in the front and it was almost straight when i picked it out…looks like I'll be rocking a knotted headband by Evolve with my fro on the fourth
Just be careful around the fireworks with your hair all out, ladies! We don't want any Michael Jackson remakes this holiday week!!!
yeah!! I will be rocking my fro on the 4th. This will make my 2nd year participating
I've been rocking my afro puff for a couple days & I plan on wearing it for the 4th!
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.
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!
This is my first natural summer since '82! I am soo gonna rock da fro! Also going to try and make the tee
I AM SOOOOO READY TO GET MY PIC AND FLUFF AWAY!! I LOVE ROCKING MY FRO TO THE FULLEST OF ITS ABILITY
Im going to make my shirt tonight!
I rock a 'fro everyday so it's no problem.
definitely rocking my twa on the fourth! Nikki!
Loving this. Just put this on my blog. Thanks for letting us know, Nikki.
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.
Can boys participate?
Fire & afros don't mix!
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.
Thanks ladies for the websites I asked for 🙂
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!
Does anyone know where I can order natural apparel/t-shirts?
I'm definitely caught up in the FROMANCE…the bigger mine gets, the more I love it!
great idea but i will be bunned up if i'm spending the day outdoors. It's just way too hot here in Houston.
I will definitely be rocking my TWA on the 4th.
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.
Luv this idea and plan to participate!! Tks for the logos….gonna def try and get it on a Tee!
Love it!!! Already said my minitwists were coming out Saturday. I love rocking my fro, nothing makes me feel more independent than a BAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Count me in! 🙂
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!
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?
But I have cute beads to put in my girls hair on the 4th….red,white and blue stars. 🙂
