So, I had a wild hair…literally. 

More than "A" wild hair, apparently around 100,000 wild hairs.

This is the before:

(although, honestly, I liked the "look" much better with a do-rag).

Last night was "THE" appointed night for liberating my chained-and-woven locks; what took Rosie about three hours to DO, took me–with the help of two "assistants"–one hour to UN DO.

I’m afraid there was probably some damage to my twisted tresses–

I hope it’s not permanent (snicker).  And when I ran my fingers through my hair,

I found more than a few of these :/ :

I guess it’s back to normal now.
