Purple Streak Box Braids + Thrifty Fashion = Easiest Math

Purple is the best color on the planet. The end.
Box braids had an amazing run. Amazing. I enjoyed the compliments, the feedback. It was a refreshing, enjoyable experimental experience that fulfilled some inner bucket list. Yet I do want my afro to have purple streaks. Right now, I’m softening and conditioning with a surging commitment because to color hair, mine has to be at top notch strength.
I must give a commendable shout out to the Goodwill, Philly Aids Thrift here in sweet ole Philadelphia, and Cure Thrift in New York City. These great thrift shops made it so easy to match chic hair to a frugal wardrobe. I found wonderful modern pieces and some retro flair that still matches my fashionable spirit and of course– my retro specs! It’s incredible how having purple streaked braids made me value my glasses so much I didn’t put my contacts on during my whole purple hair experience.
Please do take the time to find indulging gratification in life’s supreme joys: family, friends, summer, thrift shops, hair dye, good books. It’s too short. Far too short.
