I got my hair done today and as always, Khia did the thing. I always pinky swear promise that I am NOT going to let my hair get to the point where I look like I am a fugitive but best laid plans and all…
Anywho, here is a post in memes about the hair struggle:
Stages of hair twisting:
You see a picture of yourself and wonder:
A few strategically placed hats, headbands and hats will allow for a few more days before restyling:
But really you are looking like a hot mess:
And a picture of yourself makes you wonder:
And it’s time to call Khia:
Who does her thing and then its like:
When I made the decision to loc my hair, I was kind of under the delusion that it would be easier to manage. My relaxed hair was such an ordeal that anything had to be better, right? RIGHT?
It takes as much work, if not more, for me to maintain my hair. I will admit that I have a hairphobia; I feel like everyone else does a better job at doing hair except for me. Some of that is a self fulfilling prophecy. I hated getting my hair done as a child and rejected any hair doing activities. I tried to do the Barbie head thing but my braids were just all kinds of no and Barbie heads hair texture was not the same as mine and I gave up instead of allowing myself the time to practice and getting better.
But with YouTube and books and that practice I had rejected so long ago I was able to make a little something something happen with my hair. But twisting my hair is a chore. A chore that takes me way too long and is just a pain so I bounced around from salon to chair to friend to find the best thing for my hair.
I pink puffy heart LOVE Khia and am so grateful for the woman who hipped me to her. My hair is healthy, has grown and just looks great!
Get you some; check out this post and get your hair did.
