Hair Diary || A Month of Chunky Twists to Hair Boredom
|Throwback pic (Dec. 2013).|
*Gasps from the readers*
Yep, for the first time in years I've thought about relaxing. Why? For ease of care. The detangling process on my natural hair really gets on my nerves sometimes, and I start to reminisce on the relaxer days when fingers and combs would glide effortlessly through my hair.
At the end of the day, though, I do not miss the regular application of relaxer just to keep those roots straight, the breakage, the scalp burns, the relaxer smell, and the permanent straightness. After all, if I want straight hair, I can always pull out the flat iron (which I eventually did do recently) on my natural hair. What's so funny is that the "straight" phase always passes within a couple of weeks because flat-ironed hair is so boring to me after a while.
Agh, anyway, as I figure out how to spice up my hair boredom without doing something drastic, here are some more hair pics from last month:
|First set of chunky twists. Overall, I had to re-twist my hair weekly (as expected) which is too much manipulation for me. Back to my usual smaller twists.|
|The front of that set.|
|This was more of a big/medium size set of twists. In the following week, I did some actual chunky twists. (No pics for that unfortunately.)|
