(and that is really her hair in the pic, and not a wig)
I remember when all the girl in my hood were talking around with fresh relaxers and touch ups, but not Aahtahbah...lol. She had her thick flowing strong mane of hair in either; a bun, french braided, or was rocking braids/extensions. I loved her for it too...lol.
I remember I was at the park hanging out with friends (which was the norm) I saw Aahtahbah, and she had a relaxer!!! ***SHOCK*** Don't get me wrong her hair looked nice, but it "different". Aahtahbah's hair seemed less fuller, and it looked shorter?
Shortly after that Aahtahbah chalked up the deuces at the relaxer and started cutting it out of hair...lol. One year later my mother came home from work, "I just saw that damn Aahtahbah... with this big ass afro lookin like one of those Bone Thugs rappers."LMBO!!! I couldn't wait it see it for myself!lol. I ran down all the way to Sheridan Rd. I could see her fro from about 4 blocks away ... lol. Once I finally reached her I just stared at Aahtahbah's fro and all of it glory, thinking just how AWESOME IT WAS...lol.
Looking at it today it still is awesome, and strong, just like her!
