Just a quick post about my hair. I took my braids out. I had them in for about a month. The hair was too tangled for my liking and my scalp was itching like crazy. I knew I had to do something else to protect my natural hair. If I look at it too long, I might be tempted to slap the creamy crack(relaxer) back in it. You know, once a addict, always a addict.
Yesterday I went and got a full sew in weave for the first time. Let me tell you, I don’t know how women do it. I was in so much agony. During the process I had feelings of regret, nausea, confusion, you know second guessing my decision the whole time. I had no idea how painful the process is to get a hair weave. I’m not what you’d call tender headed either. That pain was real. A headache is an understatement. I’ve been taking pain pills, like foreal, nobody warned me that it would feel like this. The weaveologist told me that my scalp is more sensitive since my hair is natural and that when it grows out more, it wont hurt as much. I know the stylist was sick of me! Lol.. I’m not even the type to do hair salons, as I’ve been doing my own hair for years. I’ve even sewn in weaves on other folks, but never on myself. Anyway, enough of my whining. It’s done now, I’m still in pain too.
I totally forgot to snap some pics of my hair after I took the braids out. It’s growing alot. I’ll show a few of my hair journey pics below and my new style. I’m still trying to get use to this look. I haven’t had long hair since I was a child. I’ve been chopping and whacking it off since I was like sixteen. I think short hair just compliments my face better. And I’ve noticed, this hair really has me looking like a teen. I don’t know if I like it yet. You guys let me know what you think.
In the beginning
Happy Saturday- I’m in the streets with my cuzzo today.
Peace and Blessings,
