On another note…I’ve ditched my chemically processed hair for a new and improved version of my hair.
Yes, I’ve cut it all off. Not exactly Sinead O’Conner-esque, but darn close! If you’ve ever known anyone with relaxed hair, or have it yourself, you might know that relaxed hair cannot be undone. It’s not extremely versatile and it can be quite fragile. I really wanted to embrace my hair the way it grows out of my head so I decided not to transition, but to just rid myself completely of the relaxed hair so that my true texture can shine through. I’m thoroughly enjoying the feeling of wash and go hair, as well as getting to know my hair as God intended it to be. I can’t wait until my twa (teeny weeny afro) has grown into the lioness’ mane that is sure to come. Just this afternoon I ran out to get some Jojoba oil and other hair products. (Shh! I’m a product junkie! Yikes) It’s only been about a week and half and I’ve littered my bathroom sink with product after product after product trying to find my holy grail system.
And because I’m the Queen of snapshots, here are a few pics of my new ‘do!
More on hair later….
And this is the look I'm going for...that girl in the middle, she's my little sister. Her hair rocks.
The other women are (from left to right), my mom, Stephanie (my older sister),
Lori (younger sis), Kenya (my 12 year old niece), Angie (my other older sister), and Moi!
