So I’m creeping up on 22 months (eta… 23 months. Not sure how I messed that one up) into my long transition to natural hair. I really don’t have any complaints right now. I’ve been in love with my hair lately w/o the frustration that I usually complain about every few months. Since the last time I blogged… I’ve been experimenting with different hairstyles and just enjoying my hair. I’ve fell off of protective hairstyling but I do make sure to deep condition my hair often and haven’t seen any negative results from wearing my hair down when I want. My favorite hairstyle has definitely been mini-twists. They are very low maintenance and there was no need to add fake hair. Love it! The least favorite was probably cornrows because although they were cute… the style made me aware of how wrecked my hairline is. Looking at the picture below kind of reminded me of the lady from Essence. Just wasn’t feeling them too much… but I’m still including the picture because it might spark an idea for someone else who is transitioning.
Summer is almost over, but the humidity is crazy right now… so I haven’t put any direct heat on my hair since early June. It’s just no point. And I probably won’t until at least mid-September when the temperature cools down a bit. Last, I’m finally catching up on comments and getting back to emails so please bare with me. I promise it won’t take me almost four months to update again, lol. And how did I forget… No more braces! Pics are below
