So, I had a wild hair…literally.
More than "A" wild hair, apparently around 100,000 wild hairs.
This is the before:
(although, honestly, I liked the "look" much better with a do-rag).
Last night was "THE" appointed night for liberating my chained-and-woven locks; what took Rosie about three hours to DO, took me–with the help of two "assistants"–one hour to UN DO.
I demanded their This requires focused concentration so they wouldn’t yank out entire "neighborhoods" of hair.
Pretty soon they got bored with it, and it was just me again. Or Cousin It came to visit, I’m not sure.
When you’re at this a while, you get tired of sitting…I shifted positions more than a few times…up-side down….
Sideways (peek-a-boo, I see you!)…
and ground level….
Gracious…the way I’m grinning, you’d think I was having FUN…!
Stephen captured my reaction in the mirror the first time I looked…what a "Duh…" vacant expression (artsy, my little boy is…and for goodness sakes, "someone" needs to clean that mirror!).
Hmmm, I just noticed something–I got TWO hairstyles for the price of one: Braids, then a perm!
I’m afraid there was probably some damage to my twisted tresses–
I hope it’s not permanent (snicker). And when I ran my fingers through my hair,
I found more than a few of these :/ :
I guess it’s back to normal now.
It’s like you used one of those crimping irons! Actually, I think it looks pretty darn cool.
At least you didn’t pull a Britney and shave your head “b/c your hair extensions were too tight.”
Great hair comes with great responsibility…don’t hurt yourself!
That was fun!
HA!!! I just saw the title!
Hair – the toy you can take with you! Great shots.
Tiggerlane stole my comment! It looked like you were having flashbacks to the 80’s and crimped your hair.
You are freakin’ insane!!! (luv u)
I can only imagine the back I would have has trying get those braids out!
Back to normal huh? 😉
*runs and ducks for cover*
back ache, I should have s written… that’s what i get fro trying to be funny!
All that effort of braiding for such a short time!
Buy a crimper, you’ll get the same effect in half the time
Loved it! What exactly are you doing at the end? Wait, I know. This:
The link didn’t work so my guess is a toe jump.
I bet it felt good to run your fingers through you hair =))
I did this on my honeymoon to Jamaica.. as I recall, my hair was much thinner after the braids came out!
you’ve got hair!!!
You are just adorable. My scalp aches thinking about it though.
Crazy days…and nights around these parts.
Y’all make me giggle 🙂
Ha ha! I had the same thoughts as Robinella. Great toe touch Robin!
If it’s not one thing, it’s another!
That looks kind of painful! After reading about this I am not sure I’d want to do it myself. So here’s the question – would you do it again?
Roseanne Roseannadanna indeed, lol!
It actually kinda suits you….in an 80’s sorta way;). (Personally, I could never pull the crimped look off)
What IS wrong with me? Y’all’s comments were TERRIFIC and I haven’t responded? Geez…
For those that b e g a reply, here goes ;)…
Tiggerlane, at the VERY least!
Kim, for those who “know”, they’d appreciate (glad you did:) ).
Sandy, I never thought about it that way…hmmmm…
EBAY…LOVE IT WHEN YOU POP IN!!!
MaryMert, you don’t need to worry…really…truly…!
Robinella, yes, that’s what I was going for…Check this out:
WHAT WAS I THINKING???!!!
oOOPS! I didn’t mean to post comments yet. Let’s start again…
TOB, YES, I’d do it again. It was the weirdest/funniest conversation starter for which I’ve ever been a part…or the object of :/ :).
you are a crazy lady, Robin.
