The best thing about going to visit my husband recently was that I didn’t teach Zumba. Don’t get me wrong, I love teaching Zumba, but I was able to keep my hair in an actual hairstyle for more than 24 hours. That’s right – the curls stayed curls and the roots stayed straight. For five whole days I rocked my hair down. Yeah baby! And then Monday came as I returned home with 9:30am Zumba. That night was Total Body Blast 5:30 + Zumba 6:10 + Zumba 7:10 = hair fail. Back to Ponytail Nation I went.
Last week I recorded a video about transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. One of the reasons I did this was to show my non-black friends/clients what was actually happening. I showed the difference in texture and kept it nice and simple. Click here or below to watch the video.
|Natural vs Relaxed Hair (the difference in my hair)|
A couple of weeks ago I had twists and while they looked cute done, when I had to comb them out 1) it wasn’t fun and 2) my hair was everywhere.
It’s time to let the natural hair do its thing. So, next week I am doing my cut before the cut. No, not the big chop, but more of a short bob cut. The big chop will soon follow.
It’s time to let my natural hair have a chance at life and freedom. My roots will soon be able to run free and I’ll be a part of Natural Nation. I’ve heard your hair grows pretty fast once you make the transition so I hope my hair will be in the mood for the advance rapid hair growth speed. I may hate it, I hope I love it. Time will tell soon. Wish me luck!
