I am not my hair………….

Well, I took my braids out and I must say……..I look a hot mess.

BUT!

I’ve made a decision!  While I long for the long flowing hair like Christina over at Being Mrs Jones, I realize that I don’t have the time nor energy to go back to keeping up with the creamy crack.  Soooooo.  I am going to loc my hair.

I have an appointment next friday, bright and early in the morning. 

In preparation, I cut off a little more of my hair.  There was still some perm left on the top edges.  It’s going to be short. 

I played with getting dreadloc extensions( yes, I am that vain).  But the price tag of $500 to $700 ( not including the hair) put me off.

I’ll just have to deal with it. 

I guess it will be an adjustment.  A growing experience( in more ways than one).   

I guess I’ll be learning that “I am not my hair…….”

    I think you will be very happy with locs. I still struggle with my natural hair after 8 years of quitting the “creamy crack” lol! But I will NEVER chemically relax my hair again. I can’t support an industry that gets rich by telling us (even if it’s indirectly) something is wrong with our hair in it’s natural state.

    Cant wait to see your hair! Going natural is a great learning experience, I’ve been chemical free for 5 years and am still learning about my hair. I thought about growing locs and tried but it just wasn’t for me. Best of luck to you!
