So it’s been 3 months with my hair natural and I finally have the ‘itch’ to do ‘something’ with it. I’m debating if I should do a ‘protective style’ for a week then take it out or just leave it alone and let it sprout! I LOVE LONG HAIR! But I dont’ want to get ‘addicted’ to the long hair look when my hair needs it’s growth time without the ‘pull and push’.
My daughter is always wearing protective styles and it looks adorable. My mom as well is complimented everyday! However, I’m on the fence since last year my hair falling out due to excessive use of ‘protective styling.’ I am happy however that my hair has grown its 2 inches ( i was skeptical and frustrated at my 2 and a half month mark) but then again my hair shrinkage is at its curly max so looks can be deceiving at first glance!In any case, I am excited about this Hair Journey and love looking up Hair Crush pics from Sisters from around the globe who are proving that Natural Melinated Hair is more than gorgeous, we are phenomenal! I found some celebrity natural hair beauties, as well as, Eritrean, East African, Fulani, West African and North African hair styles that I am looking forward to wearing as my hair buds out. Here are some of my favorite pics from the African Diaspora (including the African American community) of not only some gorgeous hair but phenomenally beautiful women!
