I Wish I Could Rock an Afro

I would sit out there in the lineup trying not to get it wet. The thing would be regal. And perfect. And round. Then I'd pair it with my Red, Black and Green Liberation Wetsuit.

Then I'd dare someone to say that black people don't surf.

Or get in the water.

Or swim.

Or love Led Zeppelin.

In my next life, I'm rockin' a big ass afro.

That's a promise.

Jewfro, LOL! I had a "honkyfro" circa 1980, courtesy of some nasty chemicals at the salon!!! It really looked like s..t when it grew out, got it super short after that!

Oh, I cut all my hair off when I was 23 (and realized I wanted to be in the water all the time). I couldn't rock a fro even then. My hair is too "soft". I couldn't naturally get a fro if I wanted to.

So then you'd get one of those Chaka Khan weeping willow explosions? Next best thing!

Oh, god no! Not the Chaka Khan extensions. Not in this lifetime!

I'd have the baddest Afro ever if my hair was remotely curly.Sadly just another square with straight hair....

My mom says that she had the same issue with her hair being too soft. She said that her and my aunts would use vinegar in their hair to make it "fro out". Love the blog. Just stumbled upon it. As a sista that only feels whole when in or near the water, it's always nice to find a kindred spirit. Peace!
