I’ve my first “HOLY CRAP” Moment today.
So I’m still at TWA stage, I’ve got maybe 4 or 5 inches of hair all around. If I pull it from the furthest back of my hair (what will be the kitchen if I’m not careful), it reaches my shoulder.
So I was sitting after work with a couple co workers. One has maybe 3A hair and she’s of Irish descent, the other is Brazilian caucasian with loose waves. The one commented that one side of her hair was randomly curlier than the other. The other girl replied that her hair was some weird kinda curly. I just said “my hair is just crazy curly.”
They looked at eachother and the wavy haired girl said “You have like no hair, how is it curly?” I had just washed my hair this morning so it was just completely shrunken.
I just pulled it from the back down to my shoulder and they both recoiled in surprise, not thinking my hair could possibly be that long.
Ahaha it was great.
In other news, in maybe 2 or 3 months, if I wear a head full of box braids or something, my hair will be longer than I ever remember it being. And it’ll still shrink to deceptively short size XD.
Lovin being natural.
Watching videos of people who have been natural for a few years and they’re showing off their afros and blow outs make me so excited.
I cannot wait until I have HUGE hair.
I BC’d my hair while my mom was on her trip, but did tell her I did it while she was away. Now every time she sees me she says “I can’t believe what you’ve done to your hair…” or things along those lines.
I asked her to put it in extensions for me, and she said that I don’t even have enough hair to do it.
Well fine, mom, I’ll learn how to do it myself.
Hey! So, I’m thinking I should get my hair done in extentions or maybe (my first ever!) twists as soon as possible, to maintain moisture and the like for the winter.
However, as seen in a previous post, I am not the best at taking care of my hair.
I’ve also read horror stories about people who did what I’m thinking for a very long time after being natural, and when they took their hair out, they had no idea what to do with it. I kinda wanna stick it out so at least I can figure out what my hair likes, but I also don’t want to sacrifice possible length retention experimenting.
What do you think I should do?
