So I said I was going to do my “Confessions Of A Curly Girl” in a video form but right about now I dont see that happening so I think I will just type out my thoughts until further notice.
Now….since I hit 1 year natural, I have gotten more and more lazy with my hair. Like it’s been a good 3 weeks [maybe 2 weeks] since I got off my butt and washed my damn hair. And dont get my started on how long its been since I took the time to do a real protein treatment. Like honestly I dont know what my issue is, all I do know is that I dont feel like dealing with my hair at this point.
I think the reason I dont feel like doing my hair is because well… I’m bored with it. I have to be honest with you “newly naturals” when I say that the excitement of being natural wont last forever, well…. at least for me it didnt. I mean after a while I personally realized that its just hair, and to keep is on top of my hair and growing like I want for it to be I have to take care of it…. But that’s about it LOL.
When you first BC [Big Chop] your pumped! You have some new hair to play with, you dont know what to expect, you have to relearn your hair, and its just and exciting journey all together…. But thats only in the beginning. Because once you figure out what your hair likes and doesnt like + once you figure out what it needs… Unless your a “product junky” there’s not much else for you to experiment with aside from different hair styles and I dont do either. Im not the type to expiriment with hair styles all the time and I’m not the type to buy damn near every hair product in the stores [and online] to where it looks like I have a damn salon in my bathroom. I mean thats just not me. I have always been one of those people that feel like “if it aint broke dont fix it” or as I always say “if it aint broke then leave it the f**k alone” in other words, if I know what products work just peachy in my hair I’m not going to waste my money on something else unless I truly need it. If you want to do that hunnie bun be my guess, but Janay Naybesa will never be that chick.
Anywho’s this post is already getting longer then its supposed to be. The point of this post was to say I’m getting bored with my hair so I will be coloring it very soon + I think I’m going to get a weave because I dont feel like dealing with my hair for the next couple months. Like for real you guys, I’m not saying I dont love my natural hair anymore. But I am saying that I’m over my infatuation with it and I’m ready to get a weave so I dont have to be bothered with it for a little bit.
Tell me if you ever hit this point in your journey, and how you got over it
