Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown
I'm in a struggle season with my hair. It feels both too long and too short to fall naturally, fit my face and look good on me to me. Also, as my hair grows, my curl pattern is revealing itself to be a slim straw set-like spiral and i find myself wishing for big loopy, fuller curls.
I remember the last time my hair was about this length a few years ago and I eventually cut it and felt much better. I want to encourage my hair to grow through this discomfort so I'm trying to exercise patience with my look at the moment. But I can't shake that I sometimes feel I've been dealt a short hand in the hair department.
All these feelings remind me of times when I kept my hair chemically straightened and my "new growth" started to come in. I would get to the salon as soon as possible to beat that thang into submission. Then be meticulous about applying heat almost daily to give my hair the exact bump I wanted.
I decided to wear my hair naturally when pulverizing my hair started to feel out of line with the simplicity I desperately wanted.
That was about 4 years ago, but think I'm just now truly accepting the challenge to embrace my hair fully & unconditionally. I believe it's the only way I'll be able to nourish my hair to its full potential.
Self love is the wildest journey. It's not all calla lilies and muhfuggin rosewater, but I'm glad to be on it.
I hope you are too.
Light to you,
