So, this isn't going to be a typical #washdayexperience post. For one, I haven't washed my hair since last week. (Yeah...I know---gross right?! But keep reading, I have good reason) And for two, y'all deserve a length check update.
Flat ironing my hair last wash day was a bit surreal. My roots were voluminous, thick, and all kinds of fabulous. I flipped and whipped it around singing to Taylor Swift. #dontjudgeme #youdoittoo #yepyourighttheregivingmethesideeye
Then came the matter of my ends. Ugh. Or rather the reminding 4-5 inches of my hair. Because my unprocessed hair is so thick, It made my processed ends look pitiful. Plus the damage that I did to my hemline when I had to cut 3-4 super long knots from my nape last month, ...well..you get this:
I considered letting it be for about a day. Eventually the ends will fill in. Eventually my hemline would thicken up. Eventually it would be all fine and dandy. But for real--ain't no body got time for that! So I grabbed my scissors, and with the assistance of my sister-in-law and cousin, we pulled my hair back into a pony tail and cut straight across.
So I cut a little more. And then a little more. And a tad bit more. My bangs still have a few inches of texlaxed that need to go, but the rest is totally curly.
How does it feel to chop it all off?
Thrilling- My sister in law and cousin thought that I was loca for being so happy about the cut. I let them snip my hair because they'd trusted me to do their big chops earlier this year. #familyaffair for real huh? LOL. The excitement hasn't worn off. And it makes me giggle every time someone sees my cut then screams. No worries guys, it will definitely grow back!
Freeing- I threw my length goals out the window months ago and it felt amazing. Now I'm relatively free of my texlaxed ends. I'm so proud of the path that lead me to this point. I proud that I did it my way in my own time.
Nerve-racking- OMG...Did I REALLY just start my journey all over again? Ha-ha. I'm a little nervous to see what works for my new cut and what doesn't. Plus I promise to share all the wonderfully gory details with you guys!
Cheers to 2015. It's gonna be great!
