13 Months…Almost Completely Natural

Posted on

So…. Remember when I said I won’t be cutting my ends anytime soon? Well…. That didn’t happen.

Heh. Heh.

I ended up cutting the majority of the permed ends because I was so tired of the limpies…the limps, the limpy.

I figured that keeping my hair moist would work better without having to deal with the ends that won’t stay curled. And it did. Cuting the ends made things SOOOO much easier. 

Of course, my hair is much shorter than I wanted it to be (just like when I had to cut off a lot due to the fairy knots), but it’s extremely more manageable.  It seems that the more natural hair growth I get, the easier it gets.

Here’s the Second cut of trimmings of my ends. The first amount of trims looked just like this.


And here’s what it looks like now with my pulled-back hairdo.  It doesn’t look too much different.



I’m continuing on with my journey along with finding a WONDERFUL hat that I can use whenever I just don’t have my hair did: Women’s Throwback Knit Beret with Brim. I found it on my favorite site, Amazon! I actually bought three different types of hats, but this one was my favorite. Even my Mom wanted one, so I bought her one too. Underneath this hat is my wet hair, with plastic cap and satin bonnet. It was, again, one of those days where I just washed my hair and I needed to go out really fast.

Awesome Hat!  Until Next Time!

Another Cover Up HairDo

Posted on

Got caught again. I washed my hair and now I have to go out to a restaurant to eat.

I had some snoods, but both had unravelled! I decided not to get another one. I then find this thing at a flee market. Someone crochet it and it was pretty solid.

I want more and decided to research HATS FOR NATURAL HAIR.

I ran into several words for the types of hats I wanted: “tams” and/or “beanie” and/or “slouchy”

I put in an order on my favorite place, Amazon, for two of these. I’ll see how it comes out.

In the mean time, back to my story.  So, my hair is soaking wet, right, and in the elastic twists. 

There was nothing I can do about it.

I toweled dried it. Stuck a plastic cap on to cover the wetness. Then put on my nap/sleepy time satin bonnet, and put my beanie on or my favorite Women’s Throwback Knit Beret with Brim (from Amazon, but they’re currently not there anymore darn! Hopefully it comes back. 4th picture below). The satin bonnet was to just cover up the plastic so it didn’t show through the holes of the beanie or beret.

Just add some large hoop earrings and I was okay to go. My hair got the moisture it needed for the day, and I was somewhat decent for the public.

Life was good.

I just need something that looks a bit stylish, and so off to the online store to find them. I’ll take pictures at a later date to show how they look.

Until Next Time!
