My house is a horrible mess and my laundry is piled sky-high, but I took out Julia's braids (that I put in as I took out the locs) and we headed out to get it trimmed and for the Chinese lunch she has been waiting for.
She was all smiley at the salon, but it had little to do with the hair cut and everything to do with the pending Chinese.
To be honest, I was concerned when it was a white woman assigned her hair, but since I don't like it when people assume I know nothing about the girl's hair, I gave her the same respect. When she asked if she could cut it dry before she washed it, my red flag went up. I told her that she can't comb it dry, so I would prefer she wash it first. She obliged and the cut went fine.
I realize you can't tell much difference in pictures, but her hair does look nice and healthy and even. Tomorrow we will be corn-rowing it, while the house finishes degrading from messy to disaster; tonight she is going to swim
awards with a fro!
