Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

My WnG came out pretty good. My hair is defined and hangs a little below armpit length when fully dry. That being said I can't imagine myself doing this style very often. I prefer the look of twists and am uncomfortable with my hair down and out. If its going to be down, twistouts and braidouts give more consistent results.

Your WnG hangs to APL? Your hair must be soooo long. I think I would need floor length hair before my WnG looked that long.

Feeling the urge to cut again.
Me too. I showed my kids some pictures and neither of them was feeling it. All I could think about was how easy my hair would be and they were thinking I would be changing my identity. 19yo DS said, “That’s cute, but not for you. 90% of the memories in my phone are of you with that hair” as he pointed to my two day old twist out fro. :rolleyes: I guess I’ll wait a little longer...

I'm really impatient. I say I want long(er) natural hair so my wash and go will at least cover my ears but it's going to take soooo long. Especially with my shrinkage. Like maybe I can find a bomb natural curly wig when I want that look and just keep it short.

I’m right around APL and haven’t really gained any real length in at least a few years. I enjoy my hair but it’s work and I’m thinking about change.

I think that I'm gonna start a length goal for the front of my hair. I find that although pulling from the back makes me feel like my hair is long, when I pull from the front I'm always a bit disappointed because the front length doesn't match the back length. The back is full waist close to hip, while the front is just past BSL or what would be MBL I guess if you could see the back through the front. Basically somewhere just below my chest.

So hopefully by the end of the year I can get to belly button length (I know it's a lofty goal!!,but I was there before my impromptu bathroom cut last October) in the front. I'm trying to get to full hip by my graduation in the spring.

Think imma just kick it here with y’all for forever. I really keep trying to be patient and understanding on these other hair sites, but like gosh. Everyone thinks their hair type is like THE hair type to have, with like no regards to any other hair type that’s legit kinky/color/chemically treated.

Once upon I legit received this comment on another site:
“Conditioning too much is gonna make your hair oily. Maybe you need to clarify.”

Uhhh gurl?!

Have you not read my Bio? I could keep a bag filled with conditioner on my head, and my hair will still eventually get dry again.

So I tried y’all. I tried to be patient. I’m done lol

I peeked at that other site and they have great general hair care tips, but they don't understand tightly curled or kinky hair. It just doesn't compute for them.

Yeah I definitely agree. I learned quite a few good practices that I still keep in my regimen, but as you’ve said, it’s like 1 and 1 equals anything but 2. So for the most part I’ll probably just PM my few buddies on there and just bombard you guys all the time lol

I have totally neglected my hair. Sybil probably hates me right now lol. But I’ve been super focused on packing my stuff up, and I’m really tired most of the time because they’re remodeling in my building with its crappy walls. At barely past 7am. And it’s legal, I checked :cry3:I’m gonna do a proper wash day routine tomorrow if I’m not totally knackered. I just barely added some shampoo and didn’t even condition the other day.

Yesterday morning I made it to the post office for packages that were never attempted to be delivered and it was a lot of complaints about the fill in delivery people once the senior people are on vacation.

Its a mess.
