She's Afro-licious In A Guinness Record Breaking Way (Video)

While my natural may get huge, it's got nothing on the afro of Aevin Dugas. Hers is record-breakingly funky. Get it, gurl. (H/T reader Aabaakawad)

Im gonna say , im gonna say it;GONEWICHOBADSELF honeychile ! Nothing on the planet like black cool. It's simply glorious to behold a black woman rockin' her own god-given hair, something of a rarity these days.My mother rocked a huge fro back in the day with big hoops;needless to say, she was slammin'; and i often get my own hair felt up for tracks. I pretty sure there's a pervasive school of thought that says black women can't grow that much hair. It takes time, gentle care, and most importantly, a lot of leave alone! Git it girl!

I enjoyed that video. I wear my hair in a twelve-inch afro, so I was waiting for her to say exactly how long hers was. Longer than twelve inches. It looked like it could stretch to twenty on top. I completely understand about the peripheral vision thing. The wind blows mine and it hangs over my eyes. I can't see side-to-side. Sometimes it blows up my nose. It's all over the place. While fros are fun and I get compliments, usually by the end of the day, I've pulled it back into a rubber band for a giant puff at the nape of my neck. I wear twists and buns too. Love the natural!
