I don’t appreciate the way this wind is tryna throw shade at my immaculate afro game.
“betta pick yo’ afro, mama..cause its flat on one side”
I am not amused.
I love my natural hair, the sun and sky knows I do but I just can not do this anymore. Any little thing I go my hair falls out, my edges mess up if I dare wear the wrong hate with the wrong fabric and I just straightened my hair the first time in 7years (and I only had it straight that one time) and now I have heat damage. I am so discouraged, so many women have beautiful natural curls and my hair is just not going to look that nice I feel. I have tried everything, spent my money and wasted it on products that don’t protect and work. I’ve cried and got back up and still nothings. I had an afro for almost one year and it’s little to no growth at all, not even an inch. All I use is organic shit and I decided to cut it recently because it was uneven but now it gets dry like crazy.
I just want a fucking nice afro, my own natural hair and I am absolutely positively done with this shit for a good while. I am going back to weaves like I used to until my hair grows back … if even probably from this heat damage that I flat ironed for like 5 mins. I’m going to get it done sometime this week or as soon as I can.
It’s been real afro, it’s been real.
Yoooo, that happened to me as well. My afro was big, and I decided to flat iron it and it never went back. Well, 85% did, but there was long pieces of straight/curly hair in the front and back. I was heartbroken. I permed it and rocked that for a while, but it didn’t feel correct for me anymore. So I did the big chop a second time, and my hair thanked me for it. I feel the itch to do something different again to my hair, but I’m resisting that urge, yo. That’s what wig shops are for. :)
Don’t be discouraged, sis. Your hair is you; you can always try again. ♥♥
