Meet Foxy Fro



















Foxy Fro is an idea that I've been carrying around for about nine months now and I've finally decided to give birth to her. I've been a natural beauty for a year and 2 months now and its the best decision I've made in my life. In letting go of the creamy crack and whacking off my shoulder length locs last year I discovered two things, I didn't really need a chemical to straighten my hair and I didn't really know who I was until I fired the imposter and let the real me shine through. On my natural journey I've experimented with a variey of products, as well as tried different styling techniques for my natural hair. I probably don't have to tell you how hard it is to find galleries filled with pictures of natural hair. Usually I find lots of pics of braids, locs, and weaves (figure that one out). Well I say what about us natural curly, kinky, nappy sistas that don't want to braid or loc? What can we do besides an Afro, or a puff to side, back, or top? One of my goals in developing this spot is to provide pictures of free natural syles that you can acheive as a Do it Yourself or when you want to be pampered and visit your local natural stylist. I look forward to hearing from all you Natural Foxes out there who want to take the world by storm by being naturally fabulous.

P.S this pic was taked a minutes after I started this blog, and I'm rocking this lame puff to the back, but I have an appointment tomorrow to get my curls cut and styled. I've found a fabulous natural stylist in my area that understands my hair needs. So check me out tomorrow and see my transformation.

Hello sister. I was linked to you by a fried of mine. I'm not sure if you're a member of nappturality.com, but that was/is a great resource for me when I need some style ideas. You're right, there are not loads of photo galleries of natural hair but you'll be suprised how much help Nappturality can be. Oh, you can check out my fotki photo album.

thanks for all the love. I'm learning new ways to make the site more interesting so keep coming back and watch me grow. Nappyhead Stepchild I love nappturality too. I didn't know about the site before I chopped off all my hair so I didn't chronicle my growth I really wish I had. Your Fotki was great, I really loved your shake and go's.

In the words of Delores, "Sister I'm glad you stop putting the white man's chemicals in your hair. It ain't Natural. All jokes aside I'm glad you decided to stop carrying this idea around and decided to give birth to it. I anticipate watching your baby mature and flourish.

Do your thing girl. I have had the natural before and it is something so freeing about it. It certainly represents a state of mind, a state of being. It is wonderful when we can all embrace our hair, skin, and bodies as they are. I am so proud of you for stepping out of the mold and doing it up for those of us who just aren't ready for that now.
