There is that assumption that once you chop your hair that you are done with the hair business. Done with going to salons or the expensive maintenance.
I have someone in my life that is dedicated to complaining about my worry over the hair.
When I ask her how much box braids would cost and she looks at me as if I cursed the ground under her feet.
With which she answers. (I do not know. What ? Are you tired of your hair already? You chopped your hair. Forget about the salon.)
While in fact my head is swirling with countless ideas of what to do with my hair.
What she wants me to keep to one style? Its not why I cut my hair. I didn’t chop my hair because I got tired of hair. In fact I love it and I chopped it for the natural hair.
This is my journey where I experiment every shit available that’s going to make me and my hair look beautiful without relaxing my hair.
She then begins to mention how expensive short hair is. I want to tell her beauty isn’t cheap or easy. I don’t plan on staying short you know!
I plan on loving the natural curls on my head because I got them. Patience.
I am learning.
Learning about the hair products.
I have so Much planned for this head.
When I had the relaxed hair. I was always worried about my hair getting wet. My hair cutting. Saving for my retouch after every two months.
Having limited styles on my head. Now I am all over Pinterest searching every thing.
