When it comes to my hair I can be something of a plain Jane. Boring, boring, blah! I have worn my hair long forever! It’s usually in a ponytail. My idea of a hair cut is a bang. Yes, I know, exciting! I have been trying to pull myself out of this rut lately. I have to say, I am not succeeding! As much as I dream of a cute, Halle Berry pixie cut, I don’t think I can commit to something that dramatic. Plus, I don’t know if I could pull off something that short. If I cut it that short and it looked a hot mess, I’d be totally screwed! It would be time to introduce myself to braids or a wig! Anyway, I’m too chicken for that cut and I really like having long hair. I blame growing up in Michigan and always feeling like I had to keep my neck warm in the winter! LOL!
I’ve thought about coloring my hair. That’s totally an option. I’ve done it before and I really like how that changes my look. I’ve had highlights, I’ve been a redhead. On all accounts, color worked out well for me. Another thing I go back and forth about is finding a natural hair style that suits me. I wear my hair natural from time to time but I don’t stick with it long term. The picture above is my favorite one of me rocking my natural curls. Please, ignore my chubby face. I was five months pregnant at the time! I actually wore my hair natural all the time while I was pregnant.
I ‘m determined to find a way to keep the heat out of my hair and find a natural style that flatters me. I want it to become routine. I want to get so used to my hair in it’s natural state that it takes no time at all to achieve the look I want. I don’t want to give up in frustration because I can’t figure out what works for me. I really want to give it a REAL shot. When I do rock it natural, it’s so freeing. I love the way I feel, I love the way my head feels. I want that feeling on a regular basis. We’ll see what I come up with. I know I really have to be motivated to keep it up. It’s a huge change after doing the flatiron thing for so long. The great thing is there are so many options now. There are shops that do nothing but natural hair. Maybe I need to look into that. I think I may need professional help… for my hair, people! How often to you change your hair?
