Hey hey there.
By now I’m sure everyone is aware that I simply cannot keep a regularly scheduled blog, so yea; I’m done apologizing.
Any who , welcome and this is a quick (aren’t they all tho) update on my hair journey.
Finally officially hitting the halfway point of my first year after the big chop…. And I couldn’t be more irritated. No, seriously.
Still haven’t found a reliable individual to braid my hair, a barbershop or a line for natural hair care; so please understand my frustrations.
However, in good news it’s finally starting to warm up out here in NYC and my hair tends to grow fast in a warmer weather. At least I’m hoping that will end up being good news.
Still keeping the same amount of laziness as far as maintaining my crown.*shrug* I have slacked up on the washing, it’s maybe down to once a week. Trust me it’s killing me slowly especially since now that I sweat on a daily. But finding someone to twist it or do something to it more than once a week is an almost impossible task.
Currently my go – to style is the simple double strand kinky twist. Quick to achieve. Only down side to that is I’m still not all that great and tying up and maintaining it so it starts to look old after 3 days, eh.
I’ve somehow resisted the urge to pull the little shits apart at the first sight of frizz or when they little caterpillars start doing they own. Instead I’ve embraced it and now they all seem to stand up in appreciation , ha ha.
It seems like my hair is going through a little growth spurt of some sort or maybe because since I don’t wash it as often I’m seeing the progress with the annoying shrinkage. Either way I am please with the growth so far in my journey and even more so learning about my crown and all its kinks and curls.
Sorry I don’t have advice for anyone considering the big chop or for those already part of the natural movement. I’m still vaguely new to all this and it’s a learning experience to me.
Oh and yes I have yet to attempt the familiar straight back cornrows with my undercut style , but I will make my first attempt hopefully within the next month or so ; wish me me luck.
