I know I have a small audience of naturally curly girls. So I guess this one’s for you. As you know I went natural just over 3 years ago. At least I think it was 3 years ago… It couldn’t have been more though because I’m in my senior year of college and I stopped perming during my first year. Hell I don’t know, maybe it is 4. Anyway…
This week I straightened my hair with all intention of getting it cut. That didn’t work out so well. Because the woman who typically does my trims no longer works at the salon I go to. I didn’t know this new person well enough to let her cut my hair. I wish I hadn’t even let her trim it. This is my hair before the trim.
I didn’t take an after… I asked her to trim it but make it even… it’s not even. I’m still not satisfied in the least. So I didn’t take an after. Not like those above anyway. Here is the after I took yesterday.
It’s blurry, but it is an iPhone photo in artificial light, so what can you expect. As you can see, I’ve stopped dying my hair. Last time I dyed my hair was in November. I’m only 40 but I am going to embrace the gray. I’m done coloring my hair. If I happen to go back to Colorado, I’ll get it colored if I can get in to see my girl Katie… but otherwise… this is my new look lol.
I’ve been testing out hair styles for the summer. I am thinking about becoming a straight (though not bone straight) natural for the summer. I’ve never had any real issues with humidity. So as long as my hair doesn’t get wet, I don’t have to worry about it reverting. And John Frieda does wonders for frizz so… maybe? I just have to figure out a heatless way of doing it. Flat ironing my hair every week isn’t an option.
Anyway cosmetologists out there? If I rolled it wet onto large rollers and let it air dry would I get something close to what I have going on in this photo? I may have to test it out on my next wash day and see.
So that is all. She trimmed off about 2″ of ends, which I guess is okay, so look at the top photo and subtract about 2″ from the bottom. I really want my layers cut out… I guess I’ll have to wait until I find someone I trust (or maybe until I take a flight to Colorado) for that though. That makes me sad. So that is it for this. I may write another post later for my non-curly followers lol.
Have a great day guys!
