Picture it: I was walking into the department store and across the parking lot I noticed some really bright natural hair. So I slowed my walk in order to intentionally cross her path because I thought I could
So someone's grandma was a funky naturalista. I applaud her efforts to keep her natural hair fresh. Unfortunately, she seemed to have trouble keeping up with her style. Unless you're a brand new natural, you know that our hair does require maintenance. And superficially judging her demeanor after watching her for 45 seconds, I'm guessing she doesn't have the energy to keep up with her color or her cut.
So I began to wonder: When I get older, will I still be into product experimentation? Am I going to want to experiment with the latest 'happening' styles? What about my hair regimen? Who is going to deep condition my hair every week? I plan on having grandchildren by the time I'm 77 years old. I'm not sure what I will do with all of this hair that I'm trying to grow.

- If you are a more seasoned natural, how has your hair style changed?
- If you are a young natural, are you planning on being natural forever? How do you see the 66 year old you wearing your hair?
**For the record, when I feel like I've done enough styles with the huge afro I'm growing, I see myself getting locs. So in the picture below, I'd be the one on the far right.
