Next in the Afro series is IBA the Itty Bitty Afro..
This is probably 5-8 months of growth from a clean shaved head. At this stage you start to see something resembling an afro but not quite. You start to feel like your hair is actually growing, maybe it hangs a little bit off the side or something....
There were a lot of "good lawd!!!! what were you thinking child.......!!!! moments" such as...
|This is a mini twist-out.. looks like I have little gummy worms hanging of my head.. fail|
|This is some kind of flat-twist|
|I went out looking like this y'all...|
Occasionally I did look decent....
|My Itty Bitty Afro|
|A wash-n-go attempt|
|First decent 2-day old twist-out..I'm guessing this was me being fierce.. lol|
At this stage I was just excited that my hair had grown so much, and I convinced myself that I could finally try all the styles I had seen others try. Some of them turned out good, others not so much. It took me a while but I eventually realized that maybe.. just maybe I needed to give my hair some more time to grow.
Is you hair at this Itty Bitty Afro Stage? Have you experienced anything similar?
Do you ever feel like you expect too much from your hair sometimes?
Please share your thoughts and feel free to ask more questions on my Itty Bitty Afro stage
Hope you enjoyed..
