I'm coming up on my two year natural hair anniversary. I'm very proud of the strides i've made in my hair journey so far. But... today was not a good day. Firstly, my two strand twists were a mess (even though I had just redone them). My hair felt extra brittle and no matter how I tried to style it, it just wasn't happening. When I walked out the door for work this morning, I felt unattractive and extremely frustrated. As I roved through the day with the overwhelming feeling of defeat in my mind, I could think of only one solution ... a jar of relaxer (holds head and scream). Whoever said that natural hair is easy to deal with is a bold faced liar. It is a lot of things but easy. Much care, patience and knowledge is needed. As I thought back on my relaxed hair days I recall that that wasn't the easiest journey either. So, to ease my burgeoning desire to seek comfort in the creamy crack, I called my trusty hair braider and booked an appointment A.S.A.P.  For all those naturals out there who may get the itch to dive into a jar of Dark & Lovely because of a bad hair day or week, I recommend placing your hair in a protective style.  Out of sight, out of mind! After a few days of not bartering with your hair, you'll feel renewed in your journey. Stay Encouraged!
