Natural Hair

New Year, New Hair?

January 3, 2015

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…

    Yes! Go for it. I’m one of those people who like to cut their hair at every chance. So this year, I’m deciding to go a year without cutting my hair and see how it goes.
    I wouldn’t advice a barber though, maybe spring for someone you can really trust?

    Yes!!! Do ittttttt! I just shaved all my hair off again (so the blonde is gone gone gone) and I’m back to Day 0 hair. There’s something so empowering and freeing about cutting your hair. You should definitely experiment and share the new adventure with us!
