As of late you folks know I've been ranting on and on about my transition, wanting to chop and not wanting to chop etc etc. Well just yesterday after a few hours spent drooling over hair pics for hairspiration on Tumblr, I had a 'You Go Girl' moment and decided I was going to embrace a braidout by fire by force! [African parent saying #inherited!]
Anyway my wash was great, I spent so long in the shower pouring water on my hair just so I could see the waves that have formed so beautifully at my roots, and then followed up with the whole Leave-In Conditioner, Moisturise and Seal Routine... you know how it goes! Finally I threw my hair in approximately 10 braids, secured my headscarf and off to bed I went.
Now as for this morning, I got ready, makeup on and outfit in check so onto some braid unravelling. As usual I wasn't feeling the initial look but knew I was still to fluff out each braid and play about with the look.
Well, even after fluffing and styling the results were EPIC... in fact so horrendous I almost skipped some church time with the big guy just because I was throwing one serious strop. Of course y'all know I did NOT take pictures! I mean shoot I could have done my camera some serious damage with the mood I was in!
Anyway after church I had completely let the early morning hair casualty go, and infact decided to play with my hair some more! I drizzled some of my favourite oil [Coconut Mmm!] on my hair and did a few 'I whip my hair back and forth' hair moves, only to find that I actually love how full of body and free my hair is like this! I guess this journey isn't so bad after all!
Up in a high textured bun it goes for work tomorrow ^_^
P.s. I reached 10 months post earlier this week! Bring on another... 14?
I'll see how long I last!
Any other transitioning sisters out there craving to BC and stretch all at the same time?
