365: Mostly hair edition

365 Blogged

I am transitioning from chemically straightened hair to all natural. I have done this once before, prior to blogging/flicker-ing. There were several reasons that I gave up and had my haired permed again. Chief among them, my hair was so time consuming that I couldn’t hack it.

I was in school, I was working, I was taking care of my oldest daughter’s plentiful hair. It was too much.

But, there has been a quiet revolution in natural hair care. There are thousands of youtube videos about styling and caring for natural hair. So many blogs that I could never possibly visit them all. I have learned so many things I could have done to ease my burden. Starting with cutting some of it off!

Black women very rarely look at that as a solution. I had a MASSIVE amount of hair. Taking a few inches off would have made my life so much easier.

‘Tis no matter. I’m headed back and can try all of those things this second time around. I want my daughters to know that without some seriously stinky and time consuming alterations, my hair looks just like theirs.

By picture 365 of this go round. I will look like a different person.

Stay tuned.

  1. YAY! I’m glad you’re going natural again. Eventhough your hair is your choice and there’s nothign wrogn with keepign permed either. As you know, I’ve been natural for about 5 years and it is a lot of work. I go through stages where I put int he work and other times I don’t.

    Thsi can become another hobby because I’m still on the path of finding th eright products/routine that works for my hair. Good luck.
