Plaited Hair

As per Meno's request, here's the hair. Hope you can see the sand (and why I looked bald!)

How long did you leave the hair like that? The sand sounds so uncomfortable and itchy.

Cornrows! My mom used to do that to me, but only so that when I took them out the next day, I'd have an afro. But, alas, my hair has tight curls, and the cornrows made them stretch unnaturally, so my afro would shrink back to normal in a day. I wish I had time-lapse shots of that.

Thanks for the picture. I CAN see the sand. Glad they aren't lice. I too am curious about how long you left it like that.

You're extraordinarily brave. Most Americans barely step outside their front doors for a new experience, you go around the world. I admire that and wish a part of my life was about those kinds of experiences. I had a conversation with my wife last night, in the 7 years of marriage, we have only taken one vacation for ourselves, all other trips were to see family. You're brave to stand up to the man for as long as yuo did, I would have been made to feel guilty about the goat and paid him right there, but I don't have the world experience you have.

Yas: Go 'head...look for the good stuff.

Maggie & Meno: I left it in for about a day and a half, and took it out in the car as soon as it was culturally appropriate and was rubbing my scalp to get the sand out the rest of that day. It took forever to take out because the ends were wrapped tight with something like black fishing line.

Steven: Yeah, sure you didn't. You know, I heard someone say that sometimes karma is hippie bullshit.

Jeremiah: So then you know how much yanking and pulling goes into this!

Bruce: Plan a vacation. Now! Go!

I have a lot of hair, and I had my hair done like that once, and I looked bald too. Oh, sans the sand though.
