I wish that I could say something inspiring, cute, or exciting about this month but, honestly, I am so bored with my hair. Partly, I am tired of having short hair, but I really didn't feel this way until I went to the Zu.lu ball with my girlfriends, who incidentally have some serious "hang-time" and "whip-action". I got complements on my style, but I miss my long hair.
I could think of all kinds of styles that I could've experimented with...if I were relaxed. An elegant bun, loose curls, bone-straight, etc. The only creative thing that I did with my natural hair was to make a drammatic, red feather clip...which couldn't be seen in any of the pictures b/c I always pose on (what I think to be) my "good side."
Other than that, I have been doing protective styles...and well, there's only so many different ways that I can think to pin my twists. I do like sporting this black crochet hat that I got b/c I can spray my twists with my oil concoction and wear my bonnet on top and hide it with the hat.
I'm not interested in flat-ironing just yet b/c I'm in that "in-between" length. I did a wash 'n go while I was back home. This was mostly b/c I spent weeks in those twists and my scalp was craving a good scrub. The wash 'n go was my best option b/c I was crunched for time while on my vacay.
Eh...it's okay, I guess. So, to protect me from myself...i.e. doing another big chop, dying it some wack color, or gazing longingly at my dear fab.ulaxers, I revisited my coils from months ago.
I put these in yesterday. It took FOR-EV-A! Thank goodness, Mal.colm X was on. I did these on wet hair so they shrunk up higher than when I did my regular dry twists. I think that I made them smaller than what I used to so I may just let these ride for another couple of weeks.
I really don't want to have to think about how I'm going to style my hair for a while. I really don't want to think about my hair, in general, for a while. I guess it's growing but it seems that that's negligible.
I dunno...I'm in a bit of a "hair funk".
