I always love dealing with my hair. Most the times I would do it myself, whether it’s weaving, braids, relaxer, you name it, I can do it myself to my hair. I never hold a style for more than a month, I’m surprise my hair never fell out.
I was pregnant with my son 2008/09. My hormones was my biggest problem, it was all over. I didn’t feel like doing anything including my hair so I decided to cut it all off, that was about Jan 09 end. I manage to carry my hair natural for about 4 months before I got fed up and permed it again. My friends thought I was crazy but I just didn’t care. Within 2 months of the perm, off the hair went again in June 09. I decided that was it, I’m doing the natural thing, I’m going to love myself and my hair.
I was doing pretty well, my hair grew like wildfire. By April 2010, I had a full head of hair but boy was it hard. I have 4b hair and it’s not the easiest to deal with. I never read up on how to look after it, most the time is was dry and brittle and I got fed up again. On May 13th 2010, I went to my hairdresser and permed it again. My excuse was that I couldn’t find time to look after my hair because I had my son to look after.
It’s now exactly 5 months after I permed it and I hate it, I’m not happy (like I said, it’s confusing).
I MISS MY NATURAL HAIR!!!!! I hate been under a dryer, I hate when rain falls I have to be ever so careful not to get wet, I have to be very careful how I sweat at the gym cause I don’t want to sweat the perm……it’s like been tied down.
I permed my hair on August 24th 2010 for the last time. I am doing my research and working towards my BC for the last time. TIME TO BE FREE AGAIN!!!!
