One Year Relaxer Free

Hello everyone! I know it seems like forever since I have signed on. It’s been 1 year to date on August 10, since my last relaxer. I would’ve never thought in a million years that I would be where I am at today. It’s not all about the hair. It’s about discovering yourself as an individual. I’ve taken this experience to step outside of my “comfort” zone and have challenged myself to be a better person everyday. Physically, emotionally and spiritually. I would like for my life walk to be of many experiences and challenges. Those of which that I am able to share and perhaps enlighten and inspire others. The past year has been great!

I will share with you some things that I have learned specifically about hair.

  1. Everyone’s hair is different. We may have similar textured hair, but my routine/products I use may not work for you hair
  2. I try not to get caught up in the hair typing systems. Imo, it’s just another degree of separation within our already divided community.
  3. Embrace your natural texture and have fun with your hair! I’ve never had so much fun creating different hairstyles every week!
  4. I have the cannot keep my hands out of my hair syndrome. That’s why 99% of the time, I’m all twisted up.
  5. I am not a product junkie. Or at least I don’t think that I am. I try something, don’t like it, give it away. fortunately for me, I was able to find a great product line without going broke first. But for me all I need is a Shampoo bar, Deep Conditioner, and some Hair Milk. Simplified. Nothing else that’s it! How do I dry my hair you ask? Precious sun rays and air.
  6. I have the best hair on the planet. No one can tell me otherwise.
  7. My hair has a personality of its own! Yep Kinks, Coils, Curls, Twirls, mixed with a lot of funky fun! I my hair!!!
  8. I take care of my hair as if it is a delicate flower. Each bend of every curl in my precious crown needs to be handled delicately.
  9. Patience. From my hair cut to the growth that I have attained I’ve found myself to be more patient with everything in life. Not just my hair. Everything always works itself out I don’t stress or worry. Just breath.
  10. Strength. My hair is a firm representation of this word and an avid description of myself as an individual. I seek strength everyday.

Thought I’d share that with you all. Oh, I know that I am late on this style of the week. I was in I ♥ Atlanta last week and was in the pool!! But this style will use the same tools as in previous posts. Part your hair into a section on the side. Make parts for your flat twists but try to make them at an angle. The remaining hair will be individually twisted. This style didn’t last long either (pool again) and the resulting twistout is what you see above! Hope you all have a wonderful & blessed week!! Until next time...
