So after taking out the Marley hair, I pampered my hair with all sorts of goodness. Then I decided to do a twistout. I hated my hair. That was the worst twist out ever. I did not take pictures because I just was really hating my hair. You see, when you reach this point, it is really time to do something different. I thought about coloring but quickly let go of that idea once I remembered how damaged my ends became from permanent coloring.
Anyways, I knew it was time for a trim but I was not going to be satisfied with just a trim. I got scissors-happy and cut a lot of hair. I am very happy with the results. My hair looks full and the ends look healthy. I got rid of that ridiculous tail in the back.
I guess because I wore protective styles so much, I got used to wearing unshapely "out styles".
So, what's next in my journey? I can honestly say that I am tired of wearing extensions. I am not going to completely get rid of them but length retention is not my focus anymore. I want my hair to look full and I want to enjoy styling it.
