Giveaway! (Help me name my 'fro won't ya?)

So this weekend I combed out my hair while it was dry for the first time in months.

Usually I use conditioner and comb it out in the shower and then it dries curly. See pictured:

But back to this weekend...when I combed it out dry I really got to see the growth! It's like twice the length compared to when it's curly. Crazy!

So then I thought that she needs a name--she, as in my little afro.
I told two of my friends who looked at me like I was crazy.
(Hi, Shanika!!)

Then I thought to ask you gals (and guy? guys?) for help in naming my afro. I'm thinking of a really fierce, funky name.

So please offer your suggestions? And I'll pick the best name. One name per person please. And please tweet this if you'd like to open up the naming pool to even more people...hehehe.

The prize is a $35 gift code from CSN, which is comprised of over 200 online stores where you can find everything from a counter stool for your kitchen to a new pair of cowboy boots, which I love shamelessly and violently!

Please know that the people at CSN contacted me and they only ship to the US and Canada. And there may be international shipping charges with Canadian addresses. 

I'm excited to name my afro! Giveaway open till midnight a week from today.

What a cute idea for a giveaway... well, I know you love mangos and tj has beaten me to the punch so I think I would name your fro CHILOSA!! You know I put chili on everthing and chili is hot and chilosa is ... well, you get the idea.

Alexia, you should name it Boudicca. It sounds awesome, and she's a legit historical figure who was a BADASS. She was the leader of the Iceni tribe in ancient what is now Britain, and beat the crap out of the Romans when they tried to invade. Wiki her, she's amazing, and your amazingly beautiful new self (and hair) deserves the name.

Alexia @ Dimple Snatcher said...

So much fun--I love all of these! hehehe. Keep 'em coming friends :)))))

Christine said...

hows about vita (Latin for life)...

Miz said...

hmmmm. Id say MizFitTotallyCovetsThis but that's probably too long a name.

my four year old shouted ELLIOT when I asked her so ELLIOT it is ;)

Anne H said...

Think: Fried Green Tomatoes - the movie
unless you are too young to remember it!

Anne H said...

If you DO chose Chris' "Vita"
you could be a VitaLass - (Vitalis)
Unless you are too young to remember that, as well!
