On December 16th I’m going to take out my weave (wanted to do it on the 13th but wouldn’t have the time to henna,condition etc because of Christmas meals etc) and leaving out my natural hair for as long as possible…
If I decide to braid my hair it’s going to be short kinky twist!
"I’m not use to my natural hair" "I can’t handle it" "I don’t have time to handle my hair" "It’s so hard to handle" "It doesn’t suit me"
I’ve said these phrases and probably similar ones so many times. Went away last weekend to a Christian Conference (ONFC) in Nottingham (it was amazing!) Was chatting to a lovely woman of God with natural hair. I told her I loved her hair and we got chatting!
She said the reason I’m not use to my natural hair (including other naturals or tranisitioners) is because it’s always in braids or in straight/wavy weaves (which is so true). No wonder I’m not getting use to it/can’t handling it lol.
If I’m going to get braids or weave at least make it kinky so your face gets use to that kind hair! #simple
I need to stop telling myself the only protective hair style is braids! So many naturals rock beautiful protective styles during winter without extensions.
I also need to stop telling myself I don’t have time to handle my natural hair at university, once again I’m sure there are loads of girls that rock their natural hair at university.
Or I’ll never be able to learn/handle my natural hair.
