|The back really looks Short here...|
Yep, you read it correctly.... CUT! I kept blogging about how I was not happy with the health of the ends of my hair after last summers highlight fiasco. Well I decided to do something about it.
Last Friday I left work to get a "Trim"... Well while there at the hair salon I decided to get a Demi Color in Black and a Cut. I took about 5-6 inches of hair off all the way around... maybe more...LOL. I wanted to get to the more healthy area of my hair strands and that is certainly what I did. I have more length on top and shorter on the sides and back. It is going to take a little time to get used to but hey... I have time.
I also decided to step away from protective styling for a while. I have decided to go back to being a true "Curly Girl". I am back to washing and going and letting my curls just do what they do. In my first year & 1/2 this is what I did and my hair flourished. It was always super soft, not very frizzy and it grew like a weed. I never suffered with SSK's and tangles and detangling was a breeze.(always is).
|I don't know why it looks like I am gritting my teeth|
I plan on going the whole summer styling my hair curly and can't wait to see what the Winter will bring.
Curl Junkie will be having a 20% off sale April 6th & 7th. So a great time to try their products. I already have a wish list of Pattern Pusha and maybe another Curls in a Bottle or a Curl Rehab..Deep Conditioner.
I really plan on shelving a few of my twisting products unless I go for a twist out. I have a bottle of Curly Solutions " Curl keeper" that I plan on using this summer as well and some Ecco Styler Blue.
I tell you, in the last 6 days of having my hair cut...and doing my Curly Girl Method.. my hair is feeling WONDERFUL and FREE....like it used to almost 2 years ago. The President/Owner of my company said she really likes my hair that way and loves seeing all the natural Sistas in the Office (I work for a Black Owned Comany) . We only have 1 lady that is not natural in our office. That is 1 out of the 12 women.
She and I talked about when we had a group of Inner City Youths (30 of them) come for a Technology workshop from Carver Vocational Technical High School in Balitmore at our company and how they got to see Beautiful Natural Black Women in a professional atmosphere and know it was OK.
I think being Natural is a bit more self acceptance and self awareness that is not duplicated in any other race of people. In a society that looks to Europeans for Beauty... it takes alot to be a Black Natural Woman.
|Created a bit of Frizz this morning but totally Accepted!|
I plan on keeping things simple and enjoying this freedom. I will be blogging and keeping you updated on how my hair is progressing, styling and products.
