I’ve been thinking about this for a while now,
I want to I’m going to cut my hair. All my friend’s first reaction is “But whyyyyy?”
But let me back track, I’ve been natural a little over 5 years, my first goal was to grow a big ass fro, I made a promise to myself not to make any drastic changes till at least 5 years, and not to colour till at least 3.
In the five years of being natural I have learnt so much, from hair care, to skin care and total wellness. It’s been amazing. This year though I didn’t retain that much length, I was just going through the motions, life was happening and hair care took a back seat. This is not to be confused with hair styling though. From crown braids to bantu knots to big ass fros to twisted buns, I rocked my hair in all it’s natural glory.
I achieved all my hair goals and this new year though, I’d like to try something different. I have seen that with the right care my hair can grow full healthy and long. I’ve always been a fun-natural, not too rigid in my regimen and enjoying the whole journey. I can now fully admit I’m no longer on a length journey, I’ll cut my hair into a cute style and colour it red. I will rock it this way until I get bored and then try something else. So hopefully my next post on hair, I’ll be looking something like…
