It is not very often (if ever) that I have devoted an entire blog to my hair. Often I get to the stage where I need to do something or I will cut it all off. I've done this many times in the past. When I have, a weight has been lifted and I've felt liberated. So....what is a girl to do when living an RV life where we conserve our water, power, and time doing things that detract from exploring. This faux hawk might just have to go?

from the mane!
Being African-American (if you haven't figured that out yet should I be concerned?) Woman, who doesn't follow the trails set before me in regard to my hair, continuity isn't a given. From a young age I have used my hair as a vehicle for self-expression. In high school (quick bit of immodesty) I started a bit of a trend with my haircut. Each time I make a dramatic change I remember that It is hair and it grows back. At least, thus far it has.
I've toyed with dreads many times. As my hair was growing out I would start 'em. I start to twist and manage to keep it up for months only to change it because it was more of the same. I did mention continuity....right? So I would do bantu knots, then twists that start from bands, and then start to french braid it. All would be good til I wanted something different.

get it here!!!
I believe one of the reasons I lose it is because my hair is just too thick. The kind of thick that had little girls cutting their dolls hair after it has been in the yard through a couple of rain storms. Yep, that's my hair! I try everything under the sun but it remains the same. Yes, there is a kinkiness to it, but when it starts to reach about 2 inches it curls more. They are tight ringlets that have me feeling cute until....ya guessed it! I am ready for a change.
|Just imagine it.....all gone!|
|Yeah, it was a good hair day!|
In the end I am still not sure what I should do. Pictures of the mane's current status are placed throughout the blog. Thoughts????? Anyone?????
