Natural Hair Gathering - September 19, 2009

Good Morning, All!

A friend of mine is hosting a Natural Hair Gathering on September 19, 2009, from 6pm to 10pm. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend - it is in Tampa, FL. However, if you're in the area and interested, please contact Lateshia for more information. You can RSVP/contact her via her blog: MyNaps. It is a great way to meet/network with other women who share a common interest, and find other things you have in common! There will be games, contests, and prizes. So, check out the link!!! :-)

On another note, I FINALLY got my hair into a low ponytail today. That's a big deal for me. LOL I can't wait until my hair gets even BIGGER!!! What I did:
  • co-wash in the shower with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration (didn't rinse it all out when done)
  • left hair soaking wet when I got out (didn't towel dry)
  • parted and smoothed hair back with hands, applying EcoStyler gel to the top as I smoothed it down
  • pulled it back and used my black elastic ponytail holder (by Goody - no metal/plastic to "break" the hair)
  • used 3 bobby pins on the sides for a few shorter pieces that didn't wanna cooperate
I have not seen my hair back like this since early November 2008. So I'm liking it. Very simple, but again, a big deal for me. LOL

And I have been keeping my hair natural since birth. I should also mention that I am a man, haha.
