6 Months Post Haircut

This all started on Wednesday. I had the bright idea to cut my hair in a short haircut. Like this.... Remember when I posted about having fun with transitioning? Yeah, so I was feeling particularly fun on Wednesday night so I decided to go ahead and try the cut out. Note: This involved cutting most of my hair. After about 2-3 hours here were the results.
I hadn't combed it yet here. That's why it looks so crazy. HATED IT! I didn't like it at all. The hubs said I looked cute, but I sure didn't feel cute. I wasn't feeling it at all. I was in total shock for a minute because my hair has NEVER been this short. I was damn near natural on the right side of my head and in the back. So...I decided to just walk around with it for a day just to see if I would change my mind (and I didn't). On Thursday morning after I woke up, I noticed the nape had already reverted to natural, lol! I had to straighten some of it. I felt like I was doing my hair all over again. Chile.... One Thing I Wish I'd Known Before Getting This Haircut Short hair requires a lot of heat if it's not relaxed. At least with my hair. It may sound like common sense, but I didn't know this. : \ I didn't want to be flat ironing my hair every day. I was already flat ironing once a week because of transitioning. So wth did I even cut it in the 1st place?! Oh yeah...I was tired of dealing with the battle of the two textures & I wanted to try something new. I was so excited that I didn't think of the overall upkeep of the cut. I just looked at it as a transitional style. -_- So I said forget this..I'm going natural!!! :D Yesterday, at 6 months post relaxer, I chopped all of my relaxed ends off! #ohyeah :D :D :D :D :D Check back because I'll be posting pics today. ;-)
Make sure you are following me on Twitter & Facebook for more of my ramblings about hair and anything else I want to talk about. :-)
