Why don't you blow out your hair to enjoy your length?
I'm over twist outs and braid outs. After 2 years, I recently wore my hair straightened. I loved it and now I plan on wearing it straight for a few months. I'm currently working on a kinky straight wig with a closure. Even though I never had problems, I'll never go back to perming or texturizing.
Bruh...I get bored with mine about once a year. Been natural going on 7 years now. I usually either cut it or dye or both when I get bored. My most recent bout of boredom resulted in a cut. I'm now bored of this length and want it long again .
However, I love my curls too much and find straight hair boring on me now to ever relax again. Haven't even straightened in years because I get bored of it straight after about 2 days and want to wash it.
Me, I'm over it. I'm over doing hair. I'm tired of detangling. I think I need to get it braided and rock a wig.
Hair is a nuisance
No motivation. No 4-hour commitment to give, especially since I'm unable to achieve salon-results. Not the right tools. Laziness.
When I got over my natural hair I started my locs.
Nah, I enjoy hair products too much to be over it. Besides, I left that styling stuff alone a long time ago. For me, nothing beats a nice, bushy ponytail.
I could have written the OP a few weeks ago. I even looked up deva cut salons but I reminded myself that this is my mo when my hair is uneven. When I get tired of my hair, I just buy a wig because I spent years cutting, coloring, and straightening only to have setbacks. Now I'm into clip ins either diy or premade.
I didnt know you locked! I'm so glad you posted this. I forgot about shrinkage. I may do loc extensions so I can keep some length.
I've been natural for 8 yrs and I'm definitely over it. I don't even stress about length anymore. I'd rather just wear wigs and get my hair flat ironed or keep it twisted. I liked having a weave but dealing with the leave out was a pain.
I think I'm on year 5 myself and I still haven't made it to APL. It's probably my fault cuz I don't maintain it like I should. But I just can't be bothered, it doesn't seem to like any products, doesn't hold moisture for ish and just trying to get it into a decent looking bun is a chore. I've been wigging it since before last summer.
Look. In May I will have been natural for 15 years. The novelty wore off a LONG time ago for me. Every now and then I get the experimentation bug, but then I snap out of it and I'm right back to my normal self. My hair is in twists or a bun most of the time. I keep telling myself that I want to grow my hair to WL, but I get lazy as heck every time I get past APL and find some reason why it needs to be cut back to APL. Ain't nobody got time for alladat.
Ugh don't tempt me! I have dreams about that kind of thing.
I was thinking I really need a weave, but I've never had one and I know myself. I'd be too lazy/overwhelmed to take care of it
Yeah I decided to start them au naturel because I wanted to see how mine would develop on their own. Watching my locs grow naturally is such a delight that I don't want to hide them under extensions! But they have already grown out enough that it's becoming difficult to wear them under my wigs...I have to get them cornrowed down, which I don't like. Adding some extensions would give me a little more freedom to ditch the wigs.
I'm planning to get pregnant this year, so that will give me a big boost in length, hopefully enough that I'll feel comfortable wearing them out full time. Stay tuned!
I'm here. I've been natural 10 years but i wear it in a bun for the most part. I've reached waist length several times but at that point it gets unmanageable. For the past couple of years i've kept it apl and i'll wear it down from time to time in the summer. I really want to cut it short but i know the grow out will kill me unless i keep it short and i'm not committed to that yet. I'm not gonna perm and unless i become rastafarian dh is not into locs. he likes the big fluffy fro look lol. I'm thinking to do mini twists with synthetic hair added so I can keep them in for a couple of months. I don't know...
@ms-gg Your hair is very pretty.
I wish I was over my hair but it isn't that long so I have a long way to go before I'm over it. I guess if/when I get to collarbone/bra strap then I'll see how I feel but I love my hair too much to be that bothered.
I wore a tapered fro for a while and now I'm locing it.
I considered locs before, but IDK, I'm worried I'd get bored. I like the option of versatility even if I don't take advantage.
I was over being natural after the 3rd year. I really wanted to locs but ended up texlaxing. Although I'm texlaxed my hair is still very kinky so I still feel natural. My hair stays flat ironed and/or braided up as it is now. Once my braids come out I'm going to get it texlaxed straighter & heat train because I want my hair to look relaxed. If it was for the fact I'm color treated I'd get a bone straight relaxer.
I've been natural for 5.5 years. I'm just tired of how long it takes to detangle my hair. I braid it and put a wig on, so I don't have to deal with those long detangling sessions so often.
That's how I feel. I like it straightened to check my length, but I get bored with it and want to go back to my curls.
I think another reason Ive gotten frustrated is that twist outs seemed to do more harm than good for my hair.
Of course n reading the responses has reminded me how bored and over my hair I am. Thanks OP.
I don't normally do wng for ssk but im tempted to do that tomorrow because my tuck n roll is reeeaaaaally tired.
Same. When I was loose I'd get some type of extension (wigs/braids, etc)
I went natural my freshman year of college in 1997. Had locs for 7 years, got rid of those and grew my hair to WL. It was a lot of work maintaining all that hair so it stayed in a bun most of the time. I got tired of living my life with my hair in a bun, with only an ocassional twist out or flat iron, so last summer I got it cut into a cute little tapered fro. I love it. Not sure what my long term plans for it are though.
Same here. Too much manipulation.
I've been natural for 6.5 years. My hair is always either down or in a puff. I'm bored with it, but I was even more boring with my relaxed hair. At least my natural hair looks a lot better on me.
I want to dye it. I would dabble in weaves, but the upkeep is too expensive. I'm not about that life. I'll probably braid it up in the summer
I'm 4 years in. Still not over being natural. I want all the hair I can get. I am exploring the Upart wig game though. i need to up my protective styling.
Wait a minute. Is that what happens when hair gets locked?? From BSB to ear length?!
That has never been me. I buy a lot of products on a rare occasion. Then I'm over that too. Taking up all this space. Ugh. And when they work well for a couple months, and then not anymore. Too.much.
In fact, I'm at my mother's right now and using her products has me wanting to buy hair grease and the products I supposedly shunned years ago. Some of the natchal stuff ain't working for me.
