Whether you just had the big chop, are at that awkward stage or have been natural for a while certain things just keep happening to you.
You have mastered your regime and your edges are back so your hair looks like a beautiful noir cloud reaching for god which makes people want to reach for it, permission notwithstanding.
The paralyzing fear of heat damage that comes with going natural means using a number of no-heat methods to stretch your hair. And then having the shrinkage hit you soon as you leave the house. So you have to learn to love two or three hair lengths at the same time.
Whatever hairstyle that is not on your head is the one you want. And at the same time, everyone’s hair journey seems to be on express while your hair has been the same length for the past six months.
This in inclusive of the anxiety attack you have to overcome when you remember you have to begin wash day.
Doesn’t matter how many top tricks you try, or two-in-one product you use the sun is always setting while your hair is still wet or in a shower cap.
You just sit there feeling the ocean breeze on your scalp and all of the accomplishment.
Until the next day that is.
and immediately stan for them.
