Do you ever feel like, blah when it comes to your look? I’m raising my hand and screaming, “I do, I do”. I have been wearing my natural curls for several months and I kind of started to miss seeing my hair straight. The thing is, when I think of blow drying my hair, I feel like I’m betraying my curls. I know, it sounds crazy. The longer I wear my natural curls, the curlier my hair gets and I love that. Still, I wanted to do something different. It came down to straightening my hair or cutting it. Something needed to happen. A big chop seemed a bit dramatic, so I sucked it up and decided to straighten my mane. Here’s what it looked like after blow drying. When I tell you my arms were tired… For some reason I forgot how much hair I have. All of those curls were playing tricks on me.
Now came the task of actually styling this massive afro. Trust me, I almost left it as is. I was not ready for all of this. In the name of looking different and feeling less blah, I tackled it, weary arms and all.
Of course, the very next day it rained! Boo hiss!! A fresh blow out and rain does not mix. No ma’am. My solution, wrap it up!
It seems as if my quest for a new look worked itself into a few different looks. Works for me. Right now, I’m kind of missing my curls though.
