I am 10 months post relaxer. I was still doing my curlformers hair styles up until 3 weeks ago when I started wigging it again. I personally don't have enough growth to where I would cut. I have had a TWA several times in my life so this/that is nothing new to me.
I have been natural for years out of life, more then relaxed but..... I never had an abundance of hair styles. I wore twist, Weave, Braids, & Twist outs similar to Maxell the singer. LOL You have to keep an open mind. I never straightended my hair or figured I could as an adult. DUH! I know.
So here is what I did. I made a list out of styles I could do as a Natural gal again.
1- 2 weekers
- Curl Formers
- Twist Outs
- High Puffs (very Classy see colouredbeautiful on youtube)
- Wash and Goes
- Braid Outs
- Blow Dry and Flat Iron ( 1-2 Weeks)
- wigs/Half Wigs
- Flat Twist
- Crochet BRaids
- Bantu Knots / Bantu knot outs
- Corn Rows
- Fro-Hawk (if I like it)
So this week I will try my hand at Crochet Braids to get my hair School Ready. My first set of classes are 4 weeks long so I will leave this in for 4 weeks. :)
My hair is doing well. NO breakage issues. I am honestly looking to do the CB for the rest of the summer so that I don't really have to focus on doing anything to it. I am going on vacation in July and want a low maintenance hair style that doesn't require a lot. That can get wet and won't look a mess and that is not to hot where I will be dying of thirst. LOL
I think Crochet Braids (CB) fits the bill :)
Not to mention it is CHEAP and it is the perfect style for a Student paying as she goes!
