Random Musings...Intimate moments with my hair

Ok I'm in the mood to write.

I don't know what about yet but we'll see where this goes...
I've had a full 6 days now to recover from the prison that was exams and even though those days weren't spent in rest but in rehearsal and performance, I still feel like my brain is back.

I have some ideas for some posts that will be coming to you soon but I don't want to write any of those right now but I want to write.

You know, I love natural hair. Yes this isn't news, and if I didn't I'm defs in the wrong place but I think that alot of the time, (and correct me if I'm wrong) we get caught up in the difficulties and forget how awesome our hair is.

I mean if you read this blog often you'd know by now that I can go ON about my hatred of single strand knots and how much of a trial detangling is... But you don't know that sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror. My hair is probably in fat braids/twists air drying after a wash, nothing to write home about, but I get these waves...At the root, you know the poofy bit? Before the braid starts? Deep seated waves. and i'll just stare at them, and this whimsical smile creeps unto my face and it's like i'm looking at art. Or the 9th wonder of the world.

You know those unexpected, quiet beautiful things? Hand holding, a shared glance confirming a secret, a private joke, call me a romantic but that same warmth is what I get when I see those waves.

And baby, I got waves for!

I guess I wanted to take a moment to encourage whoever is reading this. Or for those of you who aren't in need of encouragement; I wanted to take a moment to agree with you. I love natural hair. It is awesome, unique and OURS

    1. Hey Greta!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Natural hair definitely takes patience!! Which sometimes can be a trial but sometimes can be well a test in patience lol, but I feel like taking care of my hair has helped me to be more patient, if that makes sense?
      I'm so glad you were encouraged by this!! :D

  3. I get that feeling about my hair too! Natural hair is truly beautiful :)
