Returning to Curly…Saying Goodbye to Straight hair

I enjoyed having my hair straight…for like three days.

It actually stayed straight for five days but now I’m over it. So over it. I’m ready to return to curly from curly hair and pronto.

This feeling makes me wonder why I ever straightened my hair in the first place. Sure, it looked nice enough. I just feel like my naturally curly hair has a lot more character than when it’s in a straight state.

Of course, it was my intention to keep my hair straight for at least two weeks.  On day 5 when I went to work, I was sporting a braid out on my straightened hair:

But then Kickboxing happened…I had re-braided my hair into two large cornrows to get my work out on but by the end of the day, I ended up looking like this:

It didn’t initially seem like my hair was reverting but I think I took my two “work out braids” out a little too soon. As the day passed, my hair got bigger and bigger.  I think it’s safe to assume that my hair is ready to return to its natural state.

As you can see, it’s not even close to being straight. It just looks like a great big ole blow out with some loose waves (thanks to the two braids) but it’s itching to draw up into a tight fro.

So, I’ve made the decision to just wash my hair in a few days and return to curly. I was going to do it right away but I got lazy and decided to just bun it for a few more days.

I’m going to record my transformation from straight to curly hair and upload it to YouTube in a few days. Subscribe to my channel to see!

A Prayer for Our Hair:

Dear God. Thank you that there’s no limit to love you have for your daughters. We thank you for reflecting your love through the beauty of our hair but let us not love it more than we love you. Amen
