Confessions of a Natural Hairstyle Fanatic
So, I was on my sister's blog and she did a post entitled "Confessions of a Wash-n-Go Coily Queen". It was a great post and you can check it out HERE. She confessed that her natural personality is about hair care and not hairstyles. She also said that she is a fan of the Wash-N-Go.
This post had me thinking about my natural personality. And I must admit that I am a hairstyle fanatic. I will try out any natural hairstyle that appeals to me. Sometimes, I try to avoid going to natural groups, or natural blogs, or natural pics because I know that I will see a hairstyle I like and will be anxious to try it.
If I wasn't afraid of over manipulation I would probably have a new hairstyle every 2-3 days. However, I have forced myself to limit the changing of my hair to 1-2 weeks.
At my job, I get comments about how often I change my hair. "Hey girl with the million different hairstyles." or "You keep changing it up on me!" or "You're going to keep this style, right?"
And what is crazy to me is I feel like I don't change my hair enough. LOL. However, I must admit that I recently realized that I do change up my hair quite often. Just recently, I put a video on YouTube showing the various hairstyles that I tried over the past 2 months and there were quite a few! And to make matters worse, I didn't even post all the hairstyles over that time. (You can check out that video HERE) Also, my natural hair album on facebook has 87 pictures!
Honestly, I never see an end in sight with my hairstyles. Currently, I have been contemplating quite a few hairstyles with two-strand flat twists.
I attribute my diverse hairstyles to my creative side. I am very creative and love doing projects so, I consider my hair a display of my creative mind. Even when, I was relaxed I constantly changed up my hair. I was never content for a long period of time with one signature hairstyle. If I was to have a signature hairstyle it would be the twist-out. It has been the one hairstyle that I have kept in for a long period of time since being natural. I wore this hairstyle for the entire summer. (Wow! A whole 3 months.)
I am fascinated with all aspects of natural hair such as the care, the products, the celebrities, and so much more. But, hairstyles really appeal to me.
So, I confess that I am a hairstyle fanatic! But, its cool with me:-)
