Wearing MY HAIR Straight for a Few Days
Yesterday, I decided I wanted to wear my hair out. Now, I'll try all sorts of things with my hair, but I try not to put a lot of heat in it; and if I can avoid manipulating it, I will. But lately, I've been missing my own hair.
So, when I got home from work, I shampooed my hair and applied a leave-in conditioner. I then combed out my hair. My sister saw me at this point and asked if I'd blown it out. I thought that was funny because my afro was big but in no way compared to how big it would be once blow-dried. I then went to blow-dry it.
Let me tell you.... I haven't so much as combed my hair in so long I apparently forgot how much hair I have. Not only did I forget how much hair I have, but I also forgot that my daughter had gymnastics class yesterday afternoon.
So, I had to make the decision of whether I should wear it big or flat iron it. Mmmmm..... Wearing it big might be a bit too distracting. So, I started flat-ironing it. But because I was pressed for time, I did it in larger chunks than I would have preferred. Finished just in time to pin it and get my daughter and nieces to gymnastics, which didn't leave me enough time to clip my ends.
So, there I was with a head full of hair and ends that needed clipping in the most major way! That was my first priority once class was over, except for the back. I didn't want to clip what I couldn't see. But I have to admit that I am excited about my hair's health. So, here it is! My own hair. (Kinda missing my red, though. It'll be back in a few weeks.)
