So I cut my hair.
It’s been ages since I did a hair update. I know that I promised to have more natural hair posts and tutorials, but I’ll just go ahead and be honest here. Even though I’ve been posting pictures of my natural hair on my Facebook & Instagram pages, I haven’t been really feeling it. Like feeling feeling it. You dig? I have/had sort of become a little lazy with my hair. Even though I got it trimmed twice last year, somehow my ends seemed to always split and get so tangled that I’d get so demotivated to do my hair. It took me a long time to get my hair done on wash days. Over time, I reduced to only getting my hair washed about twice a month. And that was when I couldn’t take the itchy dirty feeling on my scalp anymore. I’d also reduced to having it in twists most of the time towards the end of last year because I just wasn’t really feeling it.
I kept telling my sisters and friends that I wanted to cut it, but I wasn’t actually doing it. Until of course today, I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead with it. I had this little voice in my mind telling me to cut my hair but I kept shoving that thought out of the way until I told myself that I probably would hate to have my hair long and unhealthy. If you probably noticed I haven’t posted on anything to do with hair and the times that I tried to take hair photos for the blog, I didn’t really like it and aborted those plans. I felt like I’d be giving false tutorials if I shared content about my hair when I wasn’t really happy with it myself.
I’m super excited about starting (or continuing) my hair journey with you all, now that I am confident about my hair and its state. I’ve got rid of all the split ends and I’m happy enough to be patient for it to grow and learn it as it does. I’m excited to try out new things and protective styles with my TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro).
On a side note, I had previously taken pictures for future blog posts so you’ll be seeing my old hair in new posts soon. Please share how you feel about where you are in your hair journey. I’d love to know.
To happy and healthy hair guys!
