During my daily browsing of the Naturally Curly website, I came across an interesting article about TWAs – specifically, when your TWA, or teenie weenie afro, simply becomes an afro. I have discussed this various times with the women on NC.com, but I had never seen the answer given in the article. Previously, I was under the impression that you no longer had a TWA when you can put your hair in a pony tail, or when it at least starts to hang down. However, the article states that you don’t have a TWA when you can do different things with your hair, such as twist, braid, or bantu knot it. So now, I’m kind of on the fence. I mean…yes, I’m lazy, so I don’t do any of those things to Izzy; however, I could definitely twist/braid her if I had the patience. I also found this statement interesting:
“Simply, a TWA’s length can range from about a quarter of an inch to two inches.”
Now, I’m not saying it’s wrong by any means, it’s just an interesting perception. When Izzy was over two inches, I felt as if she was still short – definitely not out of TWA range. In fact, I still call her a TWA, and my shrinkage isn’t even excessive. Well, I would agree that Izzy is rather…dense, but not necessarily big. So, what do you all think? When did you decide that your TWA was no more?
