I wish I had a picture to show you.
Last week, I created a somewhat intricate style for myself. Well, it’s not that intricate, but it did take more time than normal. I have flat twists around my head and then twists that I corkscrew in the middle. Picture it, folks! It was really cute… until today.
On Saturday, when I went to a birthday party, a number of the ladies there commented on how nice my hair looked. That’s why I got greedy and said that I would stretch the style out until this week. I rocked my little updo on Sunday to a Black History Month kickoff event and I was WORKING it!
But I know my hair. It will be all happy-go-lucky until it decides that it wants something else then BAM! Hair starts looking like a hot mess.
The BAM! happened this morning. The hair is starting to look frizzy and a little limp. It’s really soft and the twists are opening up. Now, I shouldn’t complain too bitterly. My scalp is relatively happy and my hair is moisturized — these are big things especially in late January. I pinned it up as best I could and slapped on a gold chain band around it to jazz up the style. I don’ t know if I jazzed it up or if I’m just drawing attention to the sad condition of my hair.
I’m struggling, folks! I have no energy today to wash and style — I’d fall asleep part way through the twists — and I don’t want to wear my wig. I need help! I was thinking of wearing it as a twistout, but I have NO clue what it will look like, and that, my readers, would add even more trouble to my hair problems.
Any ideas on what I should do?
