so i've finally done i've gone for le big chop!
after years of frieing and dyeing i've decided to go natural. i might add that this is not the first time i have done this about four years ago i chopped it all off and grew an amazing afro, it grew out quite big and i could put it into various styles. i was happlily plodding along with my big hair when everyone started cutting in bangs, never being one to miss a trend i marched myself into the first salon i could find sat in that chair and demanded bangs thick one! and you better do what ever it takes i said. the stylist meekly tried to tell me not to do it saying how about a weave or braids. but no i wanted bangs and bangs i got.
2 hours, tingling hairline and £110 later i had blunt bangs and flowing straight hair and in that moment i felt smug and elitist coz my hair reached past my shoulders!.
cut to 4 weeks later the bangs have been pinned back coz they sure do get in the way. the hair that flowed past my shoulders is now etching up towards my chin and hair is just looking thin and oily!
why the hell did i do it?
i really don't know. the media self esteem fashion..........so many lame reasons.
i come to realise that there are limitations to what afro hair can do to get flowing hair you have to relax it! and it not something i'm willing to do anymore. there are so many options, so many ideas and styles to get the most out of our natural hair. our hair is speacial it our crowning glory and from now on the pledge to adore and love my hair in its natural state! amen!
so why the blog?
to help me get to my goal lenght. without breaking and heading to the salon i've decided to create this blog. to give me and others hairspiration on those dark days when you hand is on the relaxer box or the hot comb and also to show my progressions from half and inch of hair i'm rocking now and beyond.
what to expect?
lots of pics i'm not big on words, celeb hairspiration, advice on hair care and lots more
peace and hair grease xx
