Yeah, so I’m pretty sick of mine. I know last week I was in love with it, but this week, I’m thinking about Silk Elements. That’s the brand of relaxer I used to use, if you were wondering. And when I thinking about it, it’s more like obsessing about. Craving it. Feeling like I need it. Yeah. Im there.
I probably shouldnt have pulled out the flat irons last night, but I did. And it made it so much worse. Feeling that silkiness between my fingers. Ahhhhh. *sigh* Yeah.
So, now that I have discovered that my unrelaxed hair is long enough to successly cover the tracks of a weave, I’m going to be getting one, ASAP. While I understand that getting a long, silky weave is probably pretty much the exact opposite of my natural hair ideal, I definitely feel like its a much better option than giving in to the relaxer. I can put my hair safely away for a while, and fulfill my craving for heat styling and heavy, greasy product. I mean, it’s someone else’s hair afterall, Im just the girl who bought it, so I can do as many damaging, unhealthy things as I want to it, rather than my precious kinks and curls.
Besides, I think some protective styling is LONG overdue for my hair. It will appreciate the break from the elements, especially with the baby wearing me down more and more.
So that’s where I am right now ladies. I will be getting a weave, pretty similar to what I had for my wedding. Thoughts? Encouragements?
