Soooo…I took a break from my natural hair. Like a year and a half break . I never used chemicals, but I kept it hidden.
Yes, I used to be #teamnatural
Lately I had been lazy. Lately meaning a whole year and half lol.
I kept it hidden so long that I almost fell back into the small box that so many people are still in.
Favoring the European look…
I even started wearing long horse-hair tracks again. 😂😂
Sorry, that’s what I call them.
I bought a cheap phony-pony to wear. And it just WASNT WORKING FOR ME.
It was just ugly. Color didn’t match, I mean it just didn’t look nice. It looked as PHONY AS IT WAS. It only cost me $10.99. 🤷🏽♀️ You get what you pay for most times, so whatever lol.
Anyway…I’m getting ready for work, running late like I always am. (Yay me) 🙃 I’m looking in the mirror like “this is ugly as hell!”
I tried it again. Hurting and forcing my hair to stretch in a ponytail that could never look better than how it looked.
I had to do what was best. I mean I couldn’t go outside with a damn raccoon on my head. I wet my hair, combed it through; with the wrong type of comb might I add…yikes! It was so painful.
And I left out the door.
With an Afro.
In 75 degree weather.
Taking public transportation.
I was so afraid. I kept thinking negatively, then positively over and over again.
Buuuut, the closer I got to the bus stop, the more confident I became. I held my head high! I was more bold. My posture changed. Along with my walk.
Man, I missed this!
I really did. It’s who I am! I looked younger. I got more attention. And I looooove attention! 🥰🥰
So, I came home and I immediately conditioned my hair and twisted it for tomorrow. My twist out is gonna be so freakin fabulous!
I missed you so much, hair. I really did.
