Hair Talk


Dress: Urban Planet|Jacket: Suzy Shier|Shoes: JustFab
Total Outfit Cost: $55

Let's talk hair. If you've been around since the beginning of this blog, you might remember I was transitioning from permed to natural hair. Well, it's been a year now and I'm fully natural! Yaay! I did not do the big chop. Before transitioning, my real hair length was about an inch or two below my neck (from behind). Although I didn't chop, a whole lot of my permed hair ended up falling off. This mostly occured while washing or combing. The remaining bit of permed hair left formed annoying tangles at the end of my newly grown natural hair (some of the tangles were 2-3 inches in length). 

On Monday, I decided to chop all the tangles off! A friend of mine who was present at the moment, kept going like 'WOW! That's a lot of hair you're cutting off!'. I was tired of the stressful process of detangling my hair. (After you've grown out a sizeable amount of natural hair, the permed hair remaining makes washing and detangling more difficult). I'm considering going back to permed hair. I actually permed my hair, but it just wouldn't perm...

Are you Team Natural or Term Permed Hair? I'd love to know!

  7. Team natural! In the long run, i want to be true to myself. It's more personal than just not wanting to relax or saving money, blah blah! I was the last person to relax my hair in Jss because I loved my hair but gave in to pressure. In the end relaxed hair became easier to handle/maintain, but Im willing to work n keep my curls intact! :D
    Do what works for you and do so without regrets!

  18. I love the pictures and the hair.
    I think most women look good in low cut but the thing is, they are normally scared to try.
