Ever Had a Lazy Hair Day???

It is amazing to me how on most days I love to just play in my hair. For instance, I love moisturizing it, washing it, braiding it, picking it, etc. But some days I am so lazy when it comes to my hair. Last night was one of those nights.

I ran some errands after work. Came home to watch my three nieces and nephew. Whew!! I took a nap after they left. I then woke up to watch "Glee" (starting to not like this show but, I digress). After this I just felt PURELY lazy. I did not feel like doing my usual routine of moisturizing my hair and braiding it up for the night. So what did I do???

I simply covered by edges with a scarf and then put a satin bonnet over my updo (w/the bobby pins still in it and all). I started off the night trying to sleep carefully so that I wouldn't smoosh the hair. But, after awhile I just didn't care and slept with my usual abandon. And when I awoke the next morning I was not disappointed at all in my hair.

It didn't have as much volume as it did the previous day but, it was still cute nonetheless. My hair looked as if I had a cute TWA (teeny weeny afro) and I liked it:-)

And not only did I have a lazy hair day...I had a lazy face day. I decided to not do my usual routine of foundation, eye primer, eye shadow, mascara, blush, highlighter, etc. All I did was swipe on some lipstick (which is now gone as I'm typing this) and fill in my brows. It amazes me that on the days that I choose to be laidback how I can feel so confident and good. This doesn't mean that I'm gonna let go of usual treatment but, it is good to have a laidback day every once and awhile.

Tonight I will be going back to my nightly regimen.

  1. Good for you. I think that it's good to have a lazy/relaxed day every so often. Basically, we all need to see what we look like without the decoration and still appreciate the beauty of it. Makeup and high maintenance hair styles have their place, but low maintenance beauty does as well.
