I am out of lurkeydome. I love this thread. I currently wear only Italian Yaki or maybe Kinky Straight BSL. After 4 years, I still get people asking why I don't "do something with all that hair?". They think it's mine but cannot work out why I don't put a silky perm or weave on top of it. Lots of people ask how I grew my hair so long, so they can grow it (then silky perm it). Hmmmm. Anyway, I don't have blending issues. I can get up and go without heat.
What was the question again? Oh yes, I look different because my texture and colour look natural. I look different because people don't even look for the join. It must be mine.
