All my relaxed hair got put in the trash last night. Once the time came for me to start I decided to cut my hair by feel vs. sight. See you can see and feel where your natural hair ends and your the relaxed begins. I couldn't bring myself to take down any of my babies, so I just cut there and left it alone. As I placed twisted strand after twisted strand on the table my feelings didn't feel too bad. It felt like I had braids and I was cutting my braid length so I could take them out easier. I looked at the hair as if it wasn't my own, but the packs of 1B I brought several weeks earlier. I cut what I thought was the last strand and walked to the bathroom to see what I've done.....
*gasp* "I can sooooooooo rock this!" as a smile eased it's way onto my face. I be daggone if the end result was something I could live with! LOL I didn't look as manly as I swore I would, even tho' I felt the need to break out the lipstick. HEY, stop looking at the monitor like that! I do own a stick of lipstick! So what it's like 4 years old and still looks like I just opened it yesterday, I do own a stick! LOL
So I tinted my lips and wrapped a scarf around my head headband style and was just tickled pink. I know I spent a good 5 minutes in the mirror posing and laughing at myself. LOL! When I finished looking at myself, I cleaned up the little mess I made and went down for the night. I literally went to bed with a smile on my face and had that good feeling you get after you do the right thing. To me, that is like my confirmation that I made the right choice. I am going to do maintenance on it this weekend and see what that looks like. I got the fuzz going on right now, but that's kinda cute IMO. I am not going to break the style out to my coworkers till the New Year and my fam won't see it till Christmas. THIS IS GREAT!
There was something else I wanted to blog about but I can't recall what, so guess it ends here!
