Taking Stock – Hair Changes.

Hey guys!

// Warning: Wordy post ahead //

Today I thought I’d mix it up a bit and talk about my hair for the very first time on the blog 😆😆

It’s a bit of a tense topic for some so I avoid it due to my love for weaves lol but I think its time. Sigh. Also,  this post is prompted by an article I saw claiming women with natural hair have less confidence. Utter bullshit. I actually don’t have the confidence to rock natural hair so more power to those who do.

My hair and I have so far had a very lazy relationship. It’s one of the many areas of my life where I play it very safe,  which for me means either a good wig for the days its not plaited and /or I want it to rest, or a weave that I’ve tried and tested a million times.

That’s why,  with this hair,  I was really proud of myself.  I jumped waay out of my comfort zone into the unchartered waters of curly hair. Yes, I’d done a wig with waves before,  and yes I’d curled out my braids before but I had never really committed to just having curls sewed onto my head. Scary, right?

It may sound like nothing to my braver readers, but it was a drastic change for me, which makes it a milestone worth noting. That said,  I’m ready to debut my newest look on the blog. Queue dramatic music lol.

If you know me, this look may seem contrary to everything I’ve just said.  This look is the definition of my comfort zone,  because its so easy and it was,  for a while,  my go to look.

No, I’m not moving backwards. I’m still determined to be braver with my hair choices this year. Truth is, it’s been about a year since I had a fringe and I’ve been dying to get it back on my head lol.

A wonderful reader asked me for some advice the other day, so I’ll get into the details for anyone interested. The weave I have on is Flat Iron by Darling, with the front extensions bought seperately for extra volume. I permed enough of my hairline all around my head so I could tie it up in a bun.

I love this specific brand because it ages really well,  only looking more natural as it goes along.  I’m not into having another human’s hair on my head so I stick to synthetic,  but this is a very natural feeling synthetic. Which is why its my go to weave.

🍸🍸 So here’s to steps in the right direction, being braver in 2015 and maybe even red coloured hair somewhere down the line ? . Who knows 😀

  1. Looking very beautiful there. Curls and strait are awesome on you. With your face and eyes I’m surprised you haven’t found the bravery for a natural journey yet, but you look great with what you’re doing anyway. Have a great weekend!
