I BC'd in in 2009 (November to be exact) and my hair still isn't log enough to do half of the styles that I want. Everyone always sees my afro and admires the length, but lately all I see is a burden. Trying to style my hair has become the LEAST favorite part of my day. Pin up styles are impossible and if it isn't in a twist-out, frizz is impossible to avoid. My favorite moisturizer isn't working as well as I remember, and gel seems to be drying my hair out. As much time as I've spent growing my hair out, I must admit that short styles are becoming more and more attractive. I mean imagine just rolling out of bed and just leaving.. no fluffing, no taking out twists, no worrying about definition... just leaving. That sounds like too much of a luxury right now. What's stopping me? Well mostly my personal length goals, I really want enough hair to put into a cute little bun, it's my current goal. And secondly, inspiration. I like showing women that black hair can grow, and natural hair isn't that hard to maintain once you finally get it down. People stop me all the time and I give them as much information and advice that I can about natural hair. In a way, I use my natural hair journey to motivate others on theres, or to start theirs.
