There is a new Tumblr I discovered, at least new for me, by the name of F*ck Yeah Curls Curls Curls. I don't like the name too much, the only reason I won't put it in my blog list. Other than that, the tumblr is great and features pictures of beautiful curly hair. They seem to love posting pictures of Nikisha from Urban Bush Babes. Understandable, since she does have beautiful curly hair. Anywho, I decided to get a picture from their tumblr to describe my hair length goal. My goal is shoulder length to collar bone length unstretched, like a bob on the longer side. By that point, I may start trimming for the sake of maintaining that length. Here is a picture of what I mean:
Like one commentor for this picture said, "I want to snap my fingers and have my hair be this big." My sentiments exactly. But I am no wizard, so I will just have to wait and enjoy the length I have in the meantime. Although the color is not something I would ever go for and the texture is not mine (At least I don't think since your curls loosen as your hair gets longer, so I don't know what my hair will look like exactly, at the above length), her length is just right for what I have in mind with growing out my natural hair.
