I'm a twenty something college grad who decided to take the plunge. I come from a blended background of Senegalese, Native American, Jamaican, and Irish. This blog will follow the challenges of dealing with the beast affectionately known as the Hair.
And That's About All Folks
As the blogging contest season draws to a close, I look back on the past year. It was a year I began one of the most important journeys in my life. A journey that isn't over yet. The temptation to pick up the scissors and be done with it is still quite prevalent. The only thing stopping me is the subsequent horror of my family and potential employers. For all I know, I'd look adorable with a twa, but I made a promise and I'm going to keep it. I'm still experimenting these days and have stumbled upon a new method, the tightly curly method. The diagnosis...I love it and so does my hair. You can read and see the results on my new blog WondErfully Made (werwonderfullymade.tumblr.com). I'm expecting a pack of Curlformers in the mail any day now, so I'm finally going to get a chance to try them (insert excited squeal here). It may just be the thing to keep me from eventually succumbing to scissoritis (yes I made up another word). Seriously, every time I plunge my hand into the fluffy undergrowth, I feel the urge to snip away the processed masses. What I like most about the tightly curly method is that it allows my style to last longer (5-6 days), and it only takes about an hour and a half to wash, condition, detangle, and style my hair. An hour and a half only once a week is like heaven to a curly I'm sure. All I do is refresh my style with a bit of coconut oil and bottled water from the second day onward Now if I can just hang on until my b-day next year, and get a Devacut like a champ, my transition will finally come to a peaceful not to mention cute end :) |
