For the most part my twist outs, bantu knots and finger coils always come out flawlessly. I work my coils into a cute style and keep it moving....UNTIL this week happened. It's like my hair tapped me on the shoulder and said "yo Ro, it's been a cool journey and all but uh, I quit."
Now I probably won't go as far as a 2nd Big Chop (I'm a drama princess) but my hair just won't cooperate.
Why the meltdown?
- Shrinkage: a.k.a. Public Enemy #1
- Length: While my hair has grown like crazy it's at a place where it's too long for some styles and too short for others.
- Mixed Textures: The hair in the crown of my head is so coarse and tight, unlike anywhere else and it's a bit more difficult to manage.
Outside of looking for some solutions I'll more than likely be getting another protective style soon.
Perhaps this is a phase that many of us experience in the natural hair journey? How did you deal? HELP!!!
