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.
Some people are never satisfied, huh? What’s new in your world? Have you done anything lately to chase the blah’s away?
