I am in a rut.
My hair has been away for the past few weeks (in a weave protective style)- and that’s a good thing, because I’ve been too ‘bored’ to do anything with it!
I’ve been natural for 1.5 years, and the journey has had its ups and downs, but happily I’ve reached a place where I am SUPER comfortable with my hair care. I know my regimen, I know my products, I have a well stocked arsenal of easy, fun protective styles…
And now I’m bored.
I have no reason to feed my product junkism (though I have upcoming reviews on Jessicurl and As I Am products), and I don’t exactly feel like big chopping again.
Ahhhhh!!!! Oh well. It probably has something to do with this dreary winter weather. Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than a fro and a sundress! I guess the countdown to spring is on.
That aside, I do have some Natural Hair events coming up, and will be enthusiastically attending, reviewing (and hosting) them- check the ‘Curly Hair Events’ tab above to see what’s coming up, and where I’ll be (you better say hello!).
Outside of hair I’ve been focused on getting ‘right and tight’ for summer. I started a weekday vegetarian lifestyle 6 weeks ago, been putting in time at the gym, and I’m proud to report I’ve lost 12 lbs! And I feel great- energy, rested, glowing skin. Veggies have been good to me.
I can’t wait to shed the extra weight I’ve put on in the past year or so. When I was scrolling through old pics I couldn’t believe how my face had rounded out with my bad eating habits, and lack of exercise.
Just gotta stick with it, and kick this chunky little monster to the curb for good. But I’m enjoying the perks for now- like the ultra clear skin!
Oh, and to bring it back to hair, I did a cute little side braid on the weave a few days ago.
Nice, huh? Haha, that’s about as exciting as my hair is right now! At least this weave is coming out in 2 weeks and I can do a length check for you ladies!!!
Catch ya on the flip side, Curlies!
Are you in a ‘hair rut?’ What are you doing to get out of it?
