Natural Hair Thoughts

I didn't talk about this.  But I recently got about 2-3 inches of hair cut off.  I was armpit length.  Now my hair is shoulder length.

Why?  Lack of care.  I flat ironed my hair during my job search.  Completely damaged my hair.  Then the dry winter weather wrecked havoc.

So I got it cut. It will grow back.  See I am smiling.

Then the wash n gos are awful because of heat damage.  I had straight pieces in the crown!   So, now I am roller setting on big perm rods.  Turned out very cute.  The ladies in the cafeteria loved it.  So that's my summer style.

I had a point to all of this.  Oh yeah.  At the start of my natural hair journey, I watched a bunch of YouTube videos, read forums, bought products, and what not.  Now I don't do anything.  I use products with silicone and other cones.  The cheaper the product the better.  Butters don't work for me.  My twist outs are fierce when I use olive oil.  Roller sets are good with lotta body.  Clarifying?  What's that?  It completely dries my hair out. Condition wash?  Child cheese.  I have to use shampoo on this head.

I am going to focus on not using heat and doing perm rod sets over the summer.  Let's see what happens in six months?  Arm pit length?  HEALTHY arm pit length!

You know its always about what works best for your hair.

My hair hates butters and co-washing. Most of the products YT gurus recommend don't work in my hair so I just go for what I know.

I like your new do. Nothing wrong with a chop. Sometimes it breathes new life into your hair.
