|"wash and go" fail saved by a puff:)|
I have been protective styling my hair since I went natural. In fact, 99% of the time, my hair is in some form of protective styles. To be quite honest, I am getting bored and tired of the same styles. Although, I am grateful for the wonderful results I got from using protective styles, I am ready to try new things with my hair.
A lot of people swear by protective styling as an aid to to reach desired length, some others still retain length without protective styling. I believe that any style you choose to adorn your hair with is fine as long as you are protective of your hair. In essence, I am saying that, the way you handle your hair is what matters the most (provided you are not using damaging products in your hair, that's for another post). There were times I lost hair while I was trying to install protective styles and take them out (mini twists).
Well, I believe that I am moving into a new evolution in my natural hair journey, away from the restriction of the cycle of protective styling, which I sometimes do not feel sexy wearing, into styles that will allow me to be creative and enjoy my hair. I have been quite boring with my hair and am ready to be more creative in terms of styling my hair. To be honest, my hair was much thinner, and I could hardly do anything creative with it. My hair is fuller now( I am a henna head:) and I think I can come up with different styles besides mini twists and braids.
This is a new adventure for me but I am excited about exploring different styling options with my hair.
I will also do more frequent updates with my hair as I embark on this new journey
