hair today… gone tomorrow

***edited to add*** I had been au natural since October 2005 until last month when I got the color. I decided to cut it off and start again b/c it was breaking off as a result of the color. My motto “it’ll grow back” lol I have 1/2 inch new growth already.. and a link to pics when i 1st cut it.

***oh quick story***

there are somethings that ONLY happen to me! lol
I’m driving down I-64 in the far left lane (i like speed) windows down enjoying the cooler air. When I see the car on the opposite side of the barricade, traveling in the OPPOSITE direction hit a puddle of water. What happens next? A sheet of water is suspended in the air (that’s what it seemed like anyway) I can’t do anything but drive through it.
hair… wet
glasses… wet
face… wet
shoulder… wet
shirt… wet
car seat… wet

I called ian… that punk laughs!
adrienne calls me after seeing my tweet… that heffa laughs too!
lol That happens to people standing at the bus stop or on the corner or the sidewalk. Never in a million years thought i’d get splashed driving on the interstate! lol

    So true..only some things happen to you, lol…

    I never drive with my windows down…just not safe, lol.

    What brought on the Waiting to Exhale moment? But you know me, I like the short fro, lol. All that hair was making you hot wasn’t it? I promise you, it feels that natural hair just traps heat, will not let it escape from you head.

    WOW, I wasn’t expecting that, but it’s SO CUTE. I love short hair and as much trouble as I’m having with mine, I need to cut it too.

    WOW! IN the car???? That’s serious. LMAO.

    Wow…what brought on that drastic change? Looks cute though…I just decided to start letting my hair grow back…I had a short Malinda Williams cut. Are you going natural? I’ve thought about it before, but that would not be a good look on me and I don’t have the time or patience to fool with my hair without a relaxer. It’s really a good look on you, what does Ian think?

    I almost had the same thing happen to me once. Fortunately, I saw what was about to happen earlier than you did and had the window almost up except for about an inch or so. If I had gotten doused there would’ve been some road rage happening. LOL!

    It’s funny as hell, especially since it happened to someone else. :oD

    Getting splashed. Not the business.

    Now, when you first Twittered this, I thought you went completely bald for some reason (or having a Britney Spears moment). Whew!

    Looks good on ya. 🙂

    Your hair is really cute short. I am all about “it’ll grow back”. About 3 years ago I cut my 11 yr old locks (they were down to my waist). I started all over and they are already past my shoulders. That’s why I can’t sympathize with those girls on America’s Top Model when they start crying during their makeovers!
    Oh, and as the girl who is always standing at the bus stop praying no one splashes me – I am laughing at you, too!

    Same crap happened to my hair when I colored it. It just started breaking. Never again. I will just stay a nice dark brown forever. Just rinses.

    Anyway your hair looks cute. It works for you!

    As for the interstate moment DAMN! I drive with the windows down all the time and that never happened. I must watch out!

    i’m liking your hair! i love short hair…especially short fros on women….i miss mine!

    now about the story…i had to laugh. that ain’t right though…now see if you were on the bus stop i would of told you, you know you suppose to be a bit aways…but in a car? nope that ain’t right.

    rock the hair girl…cause before you know it…it’ll grow right back and you’ll either have to cut it again…or grow it out!
