The Big (Top) Chop

Well, I finally tired of the bunching and straggly ends...but didn't quite have the courage to do the BIG, big chop...

...so I chopped the top!

I separated a section of hair from my front hairline to just beyond the crown of my head. I then cut off the permed ends. On the locs that had significant bunching, I cut to the end of the bunching or through the middle of the bunched ends.

Then I tried a braid-out.

It wasn't too difficult to braid, since each loc is at least 6 inches or more, but it was hard to get the blunt ends around a bendable curler rod.

It turned out OK. Not too noticeably different, except that the top is a little fuller and less curly.

I think I will be experimenting with a 'cornrow wet to dry set' on top or perhaps a 'Nubian knot set' next time.

Four Days at the Beach: Hilton Head Hair

Four short days at an annual meeting in Hilton Head.

And I never got my hair wet.

I just stayed in the Jacuzzi, attended a few lectures and read at poolside.

K.W. was there (with her pretty hair :o)

Mom joined us as usual.

My little men had a good time, but lamented the short stay.

They've made me promise that we will stay for one whole week next year.
