Now that the summer is done I have had to trim the knots of the ends (yes I still get those suckers!!) and I plan to get back into protective and "dry" styles far more often.
I trimmed it last week- a good inch all around, but you can't really tell. Here it is before I trimmed it.
This is after I took that weave pony tail out and it was all mostly straight from being gelled back so enthusiastically lol. It looks almost like a blowout, maybe even straighter than that in the very front.
Here it is on a random work day. I had used the Shea moisture line here, including the Souffle(which must be new and I can't find a link for! but check The Good Hair Blog's review) and curl smoothie. The Souffle is VERY intersting and a review is forthcoming. I'm not sure how to use it yet, but I like it in theory (weird I know). It is greasy and not best suited for my wash and goes. I got it at Walgreens if you can find it.
But it's really not just hair. We tend to notice one another out and about. We have beautiful, tight curls, coils and locks that have been freed to grace the heads of us brave and growing few.
Many of us are on a journey of discovery and maintenance. How and why does one grow, love and respect a hair type so different than most, and so unique to each?
