This summer I decided to not get my 'back to school' perm and make the attempt to walk away from the creamy crack and transition my hair back to it's natural state.
Something just clicked. I loved the curls and waves that I sported this summer, but once I knew that I had to go back to work my mind automatically went to "I have to do my hair". For the first time it bothered me that I didn't think my summer hair couldn't continue throughout the year - that straightening my hair would seem more professional. I never thought of these things before, but this summer it hit me - and when I went to the salon my stylist was shocked when I said "no need for the perm, I'm good".
It's been 4 months and I like feeling the small curls sprouting. I love feeling the new growth, even if it's just a little bit. I'm doing my best to get comfortable with the volume of curls and the crash of waves after a twist out or braid out. Since I was never a product junkie before, I'm a bit freaked out about the amount of products I've been using recently. I feel like a student again because all I do is read articles and look at tutorials to learn different techniques.
What makes this transition even easier is that I have a job that doesn't have an undercurrent of hair privilege, which makes allows me to just rock my hair without feeling judged. What happens next? Who knows, I'm just in the moment and down for the journey.
