The girl in the City Bus, remember her, cute and bubbly. Well she left the comment below on our post on getting fed up with natural hair,

I fear going all afro...the perfect Kenyan-man-look-alike afro because I fear well, looking like a man. I am loving my TWA but I am also finding it hard to make it look unique and less of a trend. I have tried accessorising but I am not liking seeing the same accessories with someone else. Otherwise, I love Team Natural. That is all :)

To answer her, all the ladies in the pictures below have TWAs, what they also have are;
  • Fierce attitudes
  • An Individual sense of style
  • A certain je ne sais quois about life
  • The ability to use makeup at will to define and play up your features
  • Unique accessories that stand them out
One thing that they do not look like is ...Men! They have all maintained their femininity while still rocking a short haircut. Explore, discover and make it your own

This post makes me want to cut my hair! :)
Also, a good idea for accessories is to make your own if you don't want to have the same ones as someone else. I sometimes look on Etsy.com for ideas. Just a tip ;)

@Anon, not to fret my dear, congratulations on going natural! Have fun rocking the new colour as well. We did a post on taking care of dyed hair, and miss SugarPuss who is also rocking the dyed look, was kind enough to give us her regimen. About living in a HOT area, I say increase your moiturizing sessions (simple spritzing will help) and remember to seal in the moisure (very lightly, no need for the natural oils to melt down your face). Carry out weekly deep conditioning sessions that infuse MOISTURE, not protein. I am sure you will be just fine.
