After my post yesterday I said to myself- you know, I have tons of conversations every week about hair- culture, styling, products etc. SO... I will post the best conversation from every week. Here is the best convo from last week :-) My post-chat additions are in RED.
Fabulous Natural Friend (FNF): did i already mention how the whole theater turned and stared at my hair when the lights came on after "Good Hair" the other day?
ME: lol- musta been great
ME: cause no one like you or me was in that whole film
FNF: and i was wearing my "I heart my hair" tshirt
FNF: that was SO annoying
FNF: i need part 2 of the movie
FNF: with all natural chics
FNF: and the dudes who sweat us
ME: even the girl in there had extensions
FNF: so wack
ME: our movie could have us swimming and working out, going out, dancing and looking diva, with our fine men like- weave? who has time for weave?
ME: my girl spent $70 to get her hair "pressed" it lasted 12 hrs and she washed it lol
FNF: oh geeeez
FNF: that part in the flic where homegirl was talking about not being taken seriously and not taking someone seriously in a professional environment if they had a big ole afro
FNF: i literally started yelling in the theater
ME: oh those girls
FNF: the next day i was having a convo with a sista who was showing me a natural hair website (she's on the creamy crack)
FNF: and she said the SAME thing
FNF: i'm trying to remember the website tho
FNF: cuz i was gonna send it to you
FNF: something about coil...
FNF: oh here it is
FNF: (Link: http://thecoilreview.com/)The image we were discussing is GONE :-(
FNF: homegirl's layers are PERRRRRRRRRFECT
FNF: i need to print this out, go to the salon and be like DO THIS
ME: i drool over that main pic
ME: I decided I am going to the dude in NY (Hair Rules- Anthony Dickey)
ME: grow until then and then just let him go with it
FNF: when are you going?
ME: the first week in Feb most likely
FNF: oh wow
ME: i'm just going to save for it from now to make it not so bad
FNF: yeah, i gotta get it cut before that
FNF: been trimming here and there myself
FNF: but i haven't had it cut properly since May 08
ME: yeah - I um... cut mine myself so if that counts. its been since March or April
FNF: wait, is this real?
ME: her curls are loose though
ME: very pretty- color too
ME: she has a good hair shape too. i think i like mine shorter in front. for the shape of my head/face
ME: kinda why i wanna see this dude. i think he could look at a head/face and optimize it
FNF: yeah, i def need mine shorter in front
FNF: i hadn't trimmed the front for months. couldn't figure out why my hair was looking terrible
FNF: cut MAD inches off the front
FNF: brand new hair
ME: ari told me he likes my hair off my face. but that... i'm not sure i can do
ME: i do get compliments on the low puff a lot though
ME: all off the face
FNF: yup. looks good on you.
FNF: i don't like it on me tho.
ME: my hair doesn't like to do it
ME: it's really forward facing if at all spirited
