Length is real




I have always been a FIRM believer in keeping it 100% nappy. I will remain this way for the remainder of my life. THIS is why. First off, welcome to my napptural hair care blog. This was not created to worship my hair or anything like that, but it is a place for black women to find inspiration. Inspiration to be nappy. Inspiration to remain nappy. Inspiration to accept themselves the way they are without needing to change for anyone or anything else. I NEVER use heat on my hair, and as you can see from the photos, my hair growth in the now more than THREE years that I've been natural (July 17, 2002 is the nappyversary date for me) speaks for itself. I decided to do a braid out today and here are the results. The brown, almost blondish flecks of color you see in my hair were naturally created by the sun this summer. Yeah, it DOES get hot in Washington state. I look forward to posting more on this blog!

Anna, your hair is soooo pretty! I was shocked to see the growth! I'm almost at 3 years and mine is only about half as long as yours. Guess I better start doing something different. Do you take vitamins?
;-) Awesome! Also, do you twist weekly? Let me know something, girl!

Lovely hair. I just began my transition, and it's hardrer than I thought! I am going to link you to my blog.

hi Anna!

Thanks so much for the knitting advice and I just want to say your hair and your spirit are absolutely beautiful:) I hope to have that kind of growth - i guess I am about two years behind you on the length there.

I will celebrate my 1yr natural anniversary October 10, 2007.
seeing your pics encourages me to keep my hands out of the perm jars.
