Present Fascination: Short hair.

It seems I'm becoming obsessed with short hair...& vibrant color, well just a little bit of interest in the color.

I miss my wash & go length hair terribly.

Here I mentioned how fascinated with "hair" I used to be, but forgot to mention how careless I've become with my hair.

It's been about a year & a half since my BC, and for the past few months I've been rushing through detangling, pulling (not cutting)...pulling out knots that hang on the ends, not deep conditioning regularly, sleeping with my hair loose, trimming my hair to avoid detangling the ends...
...just bad hair care.
Bad Marie!

I love my hair. I'm just really bored & tired of it right now.

I tried putting my hair away over the holidays in some semi-mini twists, but that lasted about 2 was cute, but I don't really like "protective styling". I very much enjoy wearing my hair out, almost all the time.

It's funny...I think I've lost all cares about having long hair, at least for now.

Tonight's the night.

I completely agree! My friend and I both wanted long, big afro hair BUT I like it funky so whilst my friend has protected, looked after and generally done her best to grow her fro', i've bleached, coloured and had an awful lot of fun with my hair. Oh and I, like you have neglected to wrap, deep condition and follow those essential rules but hey, i've had fun and it'll grow back right...

I've gotten a little lazy with my hair too in terms of detangling. I still wish for the long, fully hair i had before my relaxer 8 years ago, but I don't feel the need to do all those extra steps.... What's happening "tonight", Marie?! Will you be cutting a little more hair? trying a new color? I think the honey brown hair color will be suiting.

I don't mind putting my hair away in protective styles...but after a while, i LONG to take it out and just play with it, which I usually do! But, after a couple of weeks, I'm ready for another style. I like to keep things simple with my hair, especially because it's at the "almost shoulder length, but not really" stage, where I can pull it back into a ponytail/puff/bun, where it in twists, wear it out in a fro, but I can't do as many long hairstyles. Plus, I'm scared to color my hair!! I like my hair color, lol!! And I'm trying to grow it out, so I don't want to cut it...sigh :/

p.s. you're not alone. i rip those blasted fairy knots out, too!

Marie I know how you feel! I've been growing my hair out for what seems like forever now, and despite how much I want it to be long, I keep finding myself thinking about getting it cut short (whut?)! Ugh, what to doo?!!

Funny, I just had this back and forth convo to myself in my head...then I just went and got it cut (again) a couple days ago... even shorter that I usually cut it too. I love my short hair. Long hair is so overrated (sometimes) I bought some clip in extensions and I'm having so much fun!!!!! Its the best of both worlds. But if you ask me to choose I'll pick a short cut any day...

Marie! I love each look! I rocked a pixie cute for years before I went natural....and I miss it sooo much. I just have no idea how I could go back unless I get a relaxer. You have given me ideas on how to rock a short cut with the natural though!

I am obsessed as well. I've had varying lengths as a natural for the past 6 years and I love it best short. Right now, I'm growing it out a bit but I want it just like the middle left photo. Her hair is YUMMY!

Neeta: Cool! Yep, it can definitely be done:)

Hey Sherisa:) Thanks for chiming in here!
