What length is your hair? The longest part is just past my shoulders and the shortest meets my lips.
How long have you been on your hair growth journey? My last relaxer was August 2005. I wore my hair loose natural until January 2009, when I decided to loc.
What length was your hair when you began your hair journey? During the time of my last relaxer, my hair was about the length that it is now, just past my shoulders. With loc'ing comes a great deal of shrinkage, intertwining and coiling of the inner parts of the hair/locs. So a lot of the length was eaten up by the meshing process.
Tamara Winfrey Harris tells a story of being in a chain restaurant with her husband when their names were called for a table.
Just as the couple rose to go, a middle-aged white woman standing nearby reached out swiftly to touch Winfrey Harris's hair which at the time was styled in natural twists.
"She missed by mere seconds, she was actually going to grab my hair as I walked past her," recalled Winfrey Harris who runs the blog What Tami Said. "I turned around and she said, 'Oh, your hair is neat.' It just floored me because who does that, just reaches out and touches strangers?"
I was contacted by email that the folks over at the World Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Show are looking for the 2013 World's Next Top Natural Hair Model to grace the cover of the 2010 World Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Show souvenier book cover, website and all show promotional advertisements!

LHDC says: Personally, I don't agree with at lot of what Mr. Andre has to say in this response, but to each their own! However, Andre originally made the "controversial" statement(s) FOURTEEN years ago in his book....he didn't get back lash back in 1997 when the book was published, but now, in 2011 when he repeats what he had published 14 years ago everyone is up in arms about it...well, do you wanna know what I think?

My husband woke me up one morning with the news that we were going to an annual scholarship ball. Now, we typically plan to go to this ball, but we collectively decided that we weren't going to go this year so we didn't buy our table. However, we ended up being invited to sit at someone else's table at the last minute.
When I got the word, I jumped out of bed, went in my closet to find something to wear and then thought long and hard about what I was going to do with my hair!
I knew it had to be washed since it had been loaded down with product from a 3 day old wash n go and I knew that I did not want to straighten it AND I also knew that I wasn't wearing my hair big!
So this is what I came up with! I got SO many compliments on my hair and even wore this style the next day to church! I could've worn it longer but my scalp was begging to let that hair loose!
I didn't use anything to actually set my hair on the rods. I washed, deep conditioned, detangled, and applied my leave ins before rolling and to hold the pin curls, I used hair pins instead of bobby pins.
