Woohoo! I've finally given in to putting Fro away for awhile until winter calms down and also as part of me continuing my ever-challenging hair growth journey. My personal schedule's going through some changes at the moment and while I get used to some things, I thought it best to give Fro and myself a break. I just hope I don't experience the usual 3 week itch I usually get when Fro's in a long term protective style.
So I weighed the pros and cons and also factored in the price issue I was
thinking about and I struck it lucky when a friend of mine offered to
hook me up. Yay! And triple score!!
1. It saves me time in the mornings.
2. It didn't cost a thing (except a sore back)
3. Although they're chunky, they're still a bit versatile so I shouldn't get too bored with styles
I prepped the same way I usually do. Check out a more detailed explanation in my blog post: Winter Protective Styling 101
VERY happy with the result and sitting down for all those hours wasn't as torturous as I had remembered, lol. And because I'm really happy with how I look with them, it should take me a bit longer to miss Fro, like 3 weeks and a day...
