Okay, no matter how hard I tried the pictures ended up looking kind of goofy so grant me a pardon this time. The first two just give you a sense of what others see. It's not like my hair is standing on end, but somehow my hair is still really offensive to some. LOL I have to admit that this journey is really interesting to me, because I am learning so much about how to do nothing. Sometimes I wish that I had twice as much hair so that they could be bigger, bushier, and fuller. Anyway, the second set of pictures just show how my hair is doing up close. My hair is weird, because the front will go straight if I wear a headwrap even if it's not tight. It seems that my perimeter is a crinkle and not a coil. My hair seems to change into a coil as you move toward the middle of my head. Go figure.
