THE GOOD OL’ DAYS
Remember when you first went natural or your initial pursuit towards healthier hair? Remember the excitement and anticipation experienced when visiting your favorite hair blogger? For me it was Curly Nikki and MoptopMaven. I was obsessed. Remember the hours spent trying you first twist out, braid out or bantu knots?
For me, my beginnings with my hair are comparative to a new, young, horny relationship. I was doing it 3 times a week. Oh honey the many styles! I was switching it up daily, exploring new techniques, reading books and blogs about it. I would take it slow and gentle with my washing, buy the best deep conditioner and put in 3 hours for one deep conditioning session! I was telling everybody, everywhere, every chance I had about how wonderful it is to go natural. I was sharing all my intimate and personal hair tips. I was madly in love with my hair.
3 years later and now we aiiiight. I mean I do it when I have the time and when I do it, I stick to my routine. Quickie wash, rushed detangling and I am done. 30 mins tops. Deep conditioning?! I never have time for that. I am in a rut with my hair. I used to try new styles, be excited about my hair regime! The flame is gone. I got to get that old thing back!!!!
HOW DO I DO IT??!! HOW ARE YOU LADIES KEEPING THE FLAME BURNING IN YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH YOUR HAIR?
