Run For Your Lives…My Monster Puff is on the Loose!
Ok… So my twistout only lasted a couple of days and I ended up with putting my hair in a puff. It was sooooo huge that it made me chuckle as I looked at myself in the mirror. I simply couldn’t believe how big it was. I have about 12-14 inches of hair all around and that makes for a really massive puff. These pics were taken later that evening, this past Friday, and even with shrinkage my puff was huge. Someone on my forum, cNappymeNow.com has a little saying in the signature of her posts “I rock ruff and tuff in my afro puff” or something like that. Well I changed it to say, “I rock ruff and tuff in my MONSTER puff.”
As I suspected it would, it turned a lot of heads. I kept seeing people trying to look at my monster puff out of the corner of their eyes. It made me really want to burst out laughing cause whatever they were thinking — be it complimentary or not so — people just aren’t used to seeing a head full of REAL natural hair worn out in all its glory. They don’t quite know what to make of it, and I was getting a big kick out of all the sideways glances I was getting all day.
As much as I enjoyed my puff, it did create a couple of minor annoyances because I kept hitting my puff on the top of the door frame as I was getting in and out of my car. Also, I always had to fluff my fro out in the back after getting out of my car because it would get flattened as I relaxed my head against my head rest as I was driving. Other than that I really had fun letting my hair out for a few days…first in my twistout and then in my puff. Today, I actually was going to try a roller set, and I even went and purchased some flexirods. But I discovered, rather rediscovered, I don’t have the patience to try to do this myself. So, I have one unopened pack of flexirods that I’ll return to the beauty supply store tomorrow. I’m thinking I’ll wear my puff one more day, (maybe, maybe not…just depends on how I feel Sunday…oh it is Sunday now so that would be later today 🙂 ) and then I’ll put my hair back into some type of protective style until I feel the urge to unleash the naps again.
I think I’m finally over my restless hair syndrom. Plus dang it, my scalp is kinda sore from doing some many things to it over the past couple of days including having to detangle it so I could cleanse it, remoisturize, twist it back up and let it air dry. Then I pulled it back into a puff again on Saturday. Now I’ve taken that down as I try to talk myself into a marathon styling session that will last for a couple of weeks. So my po head is tired. It now needs a rest, apparently, from me!
