As you know I’m in the process of growing out my hair. With every visit to the hairdresser, I’m confronted with whether or not I should do a random chop but at the same time I get excited about seeing the length. I promised my nephew I’d grow it so I’m doing just that. I still want to chop it off though… Anyway my weekly routine goes like this:
- flat iron
- flat iron once/twice during the week until the next wash (depending on if it was a curly or flat style).
I’m fortunate to have very thick hair that holds a style, and even if it did drop a little, it still looks like there is some sort of styling going on. As part of team #noweave I try to post pictures on my Instagram (Symonef) when I do my hair. Dark and Lovely even liked my pic so there was more inspiration for me! The first pic is what I did to rectify some curls gone wrong. I twisted and pinned a few sections to the top of my head overnight and the next day it looked pretty crazy, so I just tucked and pinned until it looked like I made an effort.
This one was when I went to San Francisco for a few days. I washed my hair the day I was leaving and gave it a little wave that I wouldn’t have to do anything with it for the rest of the trip. And I didn’t! As the curl dropped and stayed in some places, I just pinned the front back and kept it cute. It was also prior to the fresh highlights I got that you can see in the pic above.
Growing out your hair doesn’t have to be a painful process. I find it interesting because I’m forced to see what styles suit my face and style accordingly as well as play with highlights and layers. I don’t know where I’d be without my highlights and layers! I’ll post another pic after my next wash when I just do it “flat”. Patience is key when dealing with hair but there is nothing more rewarding than receiving compliments for you hair and what you did on your own to your hair with regards to styling it. If our hair is our main point of beauty, then wouldn’t you wish for it to be yours as much as possible?
I’m off to order a stick vacuum and run some errands. Have a wonderful afternoon until next time.
