Being Natural has its moments, especially during wash day and humid days! But nothing grinds a lazy natural more than dealing with days like that and more. If you’re a lazy natural you’ll definitely relate!
Day 1 – Saturday
Washed my hair.
Did not pre-poo because I wasn’t in the mood. In fact, I didn’t even wash my hair in sections like I should have. Plus I used regular shampoo because I ran out of my fancy one. I did condition it though. Left my favourite conditioner on for a good 3 hours as I cleaned the house, so thumbs up to me.
Finger detangled and used coconut oil. Will sleep with my hair in African threading tonight and tomorrow I will put my hair in twists.
Day 2 – Sunday
Got home from teaching Sunday school. Cooked. Washed the car. Sat in front of the T.V.
I’m sure the flat twist that I put in this morning can last me until tomorrow evening. I will definitely put twists in tomorrow. Plus I need a trim.
Day 3 – Monday
Monday’s are the actual worst!
Hair looks fine. I will just brush up the edges tomorrow morning. Tuesdays are always better anyway.
Day 4 – Tuesday
10 p.m is never the right time to start your hair. Ever! And why did I decide that braiding my hair would be easier than just a simple twist
Lord, give me strength to finish this. Otherwise, I will wear a headscarf tomorrow.
At least my hair is finally getting some moisture though.
Day 5 – Wednesday
I hate the braids. I always do. Yet somehow I try and convince myself otherwise each and every time.
I need to take them out before Friday. Wore a headscarf.
Sidenote – I really need a trim.
Day 6 – Thursday
This is exactly what happens when you trim your hair tired! You mistakenly cut off half a braid. That’s my hair! Years of growth just gone!!!
I’m contemplating just cutting all my hair now.
Day 7 – Friday
I promise to do better next week. Starting with wash day tomorrow. Maybe I’ll even twist my hair?
